I bought a 2nd hand motherboard but don't know what bios is on, my cpu is a fx 8320 and not all bios support it.

Can I just boot with the 8320 and see or will that cause issues?

The mobo is m5a97 evo r2.0 rev 1.01

Thanks,

Since second hand, the BIOS might have been upgraded by the owner.
Sure you can try installing the CPU and see if booting.

I was just looking for you, and i noticed in the manual the first page says E8045 Revised Edition V2 january 2013,
so I presume the board is a jan 2013 release.

even if the previous owner didnt update the bios you would at least get bios 1201-1302.
