Will the Intel Pentium G3258 work without a BIOS update on a ASUS H81M-D PLUS?

I'm worried that the computer won't even boot up for me to update the BIOS.

  1. Im pretty sure it wont need a bios update since its not a devils canyon cpu, other users correct me if im wrong. But that is not a good board to OC on.
  2. Plz learn to google before you post. We are not asus support. They have a special page for that.

    Don't be harsh on the lad.
  4. I'm sure I've seen a G3258 work without Bios Update on Asrock H81-HDS and it was oc to 4.6 Ghz Stable

    So supposedly I think you won't need an update

    Sorry, I'm new to building PC's and I really didn't know ASUS had one of those sites until you told me.

    Still a valid question since its a new processor and teh websites just blanket list the generation.

    I know the Gigabyte B85M-DS3H can run the G3258 even on old BIOS' without issue, maybe go for that board? It can also OC it very nicely. :)

    And Yingda, don't be rude. He came to the right place. It's hard to find info about this, even on their website.

    Very good choice for a mobo , supports up to 32 GB of ram and I think has two pcie slots.

    I like the motherboard you have chosen, with NewEgg's rebate I'm pretty sure I'll be getting this motherboard instead. Thanks for everyone who helped me you guys are awesome! :)
  11. Sounds great! Let us know how it all goes. And no worries, happy to help.
    Thanks for posting. :)

    It is impossible to answer his question unless you know the current bios version, an information which cannot be obtain unless u bought the board/called asus support. All answers without this info will be estimations, not garanted.
    Ps: I am not trying to be rude. Just want people to do their homework before asking a question. Better to teach a man how to fish then to give him a fish.
    If he said that he does not have the board, thus not knowing the bios version and has already checked the asus site with no luck, Then I would happily tell him the the cpu will word sufficiently for a bios update. No need to worry
  13. He can't be expected to know how to do everything. That's a reason why we're here. :)
    Please be as nice as you possibly can be.
    He's chosen a board that will work regardless of BIOS version anyway.
  14. I bought & fitted the G3258 on an Asus H81M-Plus and can confirm that without a m/b bios update, that it does not work. Had to purchase an I3-4130 processor first, because the original bios supports that, and then update to the latest bios, to try out the G3258.
