H81m-P33 bios update Haswell-Refresh

After purchasing a motherboard, I noticed that pcpartpicker noted that h81 motherboards may need a bios flash in order to use Harwell refresh cups. However, i read that people said the bios is already updated and a flash will not be required in order to run my CPU. I ordered my motherboard in December of 2015, so I do not know whether I need to update my bios using a Has well processor in order to use an i5 4460. If anyone can tell me that would be greatly appreciated!

    It will depend on what motherboard you end up with. If it's been sitting on a shelf for a long time, it might not have a newer Bios update. If it doesn't boot up when you try your CPU, you'll know. You can borrow a CPU from a friend if they have one to boot up and reflash the Bios or take it to a local shop and have them do it for you.
