You have to have a cpu in the motherboard that is supported to be able to update the bios.

Which is a big problem if the only cpu you have is the one not supported by the bios.

You can google MSI (your boards model number) cpu compatibility, go to the page that links you to MSIs website and see the list of supprted CPUs which should also say which bios version is required to support it.

With that said, if you are buying the board today, most likely the board would be new enough to have a bios version that spports it

That board will support the CPU right out of the box.

The board was just recently released the FX8350 is 100% compatible right from the box. :D
