HELP! --Some AMD 970 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Vishera CPUs.--

First PC I build, and this is preventing me from buying the list

I just want to make sure that the Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 ATX AM3+ motherboard is compatible with the FX-6300 AMD CPU without having to update my motherboard's BIOS. Thank you guys.

  1. Your link does not lead to your build.
  2. Link is bad

    That said that BIOS issue hasn't been a problem for years. You are fine.
  3. Do the motherboards now come with the bios update already?

    Basically yes, unless you are buying a motherboard that was manufactured 4 years ago before all these CPUs were out, as they manufacture new boards they provide upgraded BIOS chips already in them.

    I guess its possible if you manage to find one thats been sitting on a shelf for 4 years, but I have yet to hear of it happening.
  5. cool. Should probably tell pcpartpicker that
