Will this board: MSI P6N Platinum LGA 775
Work out of the box with an e8400? I'm confused about how a BIOS effects the compatibility of the CPU.
This is my first Intel rig in a very long time. :\

Thanks for any help.

Needs bios 1.6 so you may need to update Bios.

Unless they get another Bios fix to support them.

Buy a e1200 for like $50 to change your bios. After your done with it I'll buy it from you for $35.00 garunteed.

Your out $15 and got your new cpu runnin and we are both happy.

Hmmm.... I'm currently at a workstation that I just noticed is running an e4500 :D . Thanks for your offer dude, I would probably do it too, but I think I'll just use this thing to flash it if I encounter any problems.

As long as you got permission to yank that CPU out go for it.
