Hello all, I am here today because I need help with my very first PC build, which you can find here http://pcpartpicker.com/user/deadkathy/saved/3S7e I am looking for a mobo that would support the 6300 out of the box with no Bios update required, it must also be MicroATX. I was looking at the MSI 760GMA-P34 (FX) and the Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3.

More about : mobo supports 6300 box

That's the one I'm leaning towards, but I need to be 100% certain that I won't have to update the bios to get it to work.

Those boards aren't good for the FX Series CPU's because of thermal issues.

Like what? The FX 6300 TDP is only 95.

that's not what he means, it isn't about the wattage but the heat.

The CPU has a cooler and I'm getting a solid fan. Only thing I need answered is what mobo will work out of the box with the fx 6300.

you may have to update BIOS, But it can sometimes be really hard to find a motherboard that needs no BIOS update. It is easy to update your BIOS and if you needed help on how to do so, you can search it on youtube for a step by step solution.

no, you don't. When you update BIOS, you are updating it to support the CPU you have put into the motherboard.

Thanks for all your help. I've decided to go with the Gigabyte
GA-78LMT-USB3. If it needs a update I'll just take it to a shop to do it.
