Solved

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

Just ordered some of these listed parts (http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/crq8Yr) and it gave the error which is in the title for my motherboard and cpu. Is this somthing I should worry about? I didn't think it was much of an issue becuase it was just talking about an update. If so how do I do it? or will I need to change it?

Thanks.

EDIT : I am waiting for the custom versions of the RX 480 to be released and come down in price, so just assumed a price.

  1. Can you cancel you order? You are making a mistake if keeping that crap.
  2. https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/970A-SLI-Krait-Edition.html#support_support
    Click on the CPU support that board works with that chip with it's first BIOS version P.0
    So no BIOS update will be needed.

    Do not sink money in that dead AM3+ platform. Even an i3 will serve you better and the patform has a future.

    Wow, thank you a lot for doing all that :p I think I'll go for the first one with the i3, but is there any good ATX mobo's? I just prefer them over micro for some reason.

    I'll mark that as solution though, thank you.
  8. Obviously the MB will be a bit more, but you do get teh advantages of having an M.2 slot and 4 ram slots, hence getting a 2x4 kit instead of 1x8 as you have room to add more later.
