Need help flashing ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Professional

Hello everybody,

My friend wants me to build him a pc. Luckily, a friend of his has a spare Asrock Fatal1ty 990FX Pro motherboard, helping to cut down costs. The issue is, we are interested in picking up the FX 6300/83XX but the motherboard was apparently won in some competition 1.5 years ago, unboxed.

Since it has been sitting on the shelf for a while, I am worried that it will not POST with the newer FX cpu's

I do not have any spare AM3 cpu's to temporarily use. Is it possible to flash it without a cpu?

Any suggestions? (other than buying an am3 cpu temporarily)

Thanks for reading

    No it will need to be a full system minus storage to flash it within BIOS, ram, CPU, gpu etc
