Error: "Some AMD 970 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Vishera CPUs.

Just when I finally got a build which I think should suffice for all of my needs, I get this pesky error: "Some AMD 970 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Vishera CPUs.

What exactly does this mean and how will it affect me when the parts arrive?

Here's my build:

  1. No problem, it´s just that some motherboards need a bios update prior using a vishera cpu (fx 43xx, 63xx, 83xx), it always comes with the latest bios so don´t worrie about that if anything happens with that board you can update the bios via usb.

    However if you want to upgrade the bios you will need a working cpu. Which if its not compatible then it could be a mission. Most stores can upgrade it for you. But normally (prior experience) they only reconise one core and work off that. Which is fine while upgrading bios. But as said in all theory it should have the latest bios so i say you should be fine
  4. Unless is have been sitting and collection dust on a shelf in a warehouse for over a year, it will come with the latest BIOS.
