Will this run without need for a BIOS update?

Pretty much what the title says. Need to buy a new mobo asap after finding out the one I bought is not compatible

MSI H97 PC Mate

i5 4690 Devils Canyon processor.

Thanks guys.

    What about the MSI B85 G41 PC Mate?
  3. No it would need a bios update.

    Am I able to do that? I don't know how that works. Someone on another site said I would already need a different cpu to do it
  5. Some boards can update bios without a CPU but I do not think the B85 G41 PC Mate can. You would have to ask MSI directly to be sure.
