Hi guys

I have a asrock n68c-gs fx board with a phenom II x2 550 cpu and i want to upgrade to the fx-6300 (is the best cpu that this board can handle) the problem is the 6300 requires a 1.30 bios version and I have the 1.00. So my question is i have to update the bios before or after installing the new CPU?? or i can install the CPU without even update the BIOS??. Thanks for the help and sorry for my english :D 

Best solution

Update the BIOS before you take out the Phenom. Then, your BIOS will be ready to accept the FX once you plug it in.
