You need to contact the seller and find out which bios version the motherboard is using.
If it's version F3 your good to go. If not it might work well enough for you to update the bios.
If not a local computer shop can do that for you.
I hope that helps:)

Looks like it will be supported as soon as you get it, since it's rev 5.

Well every BIOS version is FA, which implies that that is the original (and only) BIOS version.

How can you say that GA-78LMT-USB3 has a default BIOS of version FA,
is it because every processor is running on that version according to that list ?
and what should i've to do after buying GA-78LMT-USB3 rev 4.1 ?
According to the list of rev 4.1 motherboard,
it requires F3 version of bios.
how do i upgrade to that version ? I dont have any other CPU.

You said you're getting the rev 5.0 though? So the 4.1 doesn't matter.

And yes, every processor is running on that BIOS version so it would make sense that it would be the default.

If you ARE getting the 4.1 then I don't know how you'd update the BIOS.
