BIOS and CPU's, confused... little help? Tags: Motherboards Platinum BIOS CPUs Product Last response: April 24, 2008 1:39 AM in Motherboards Share doomsdaydave11 April 24, 2008 12:45:42 AM 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.

But does it mean I'm completely screwed if I don't have another LGA775 CPU laying around? Also, the support list says NO for Yorkfields http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=prodcpusupport&... Does that mean that my upgrade options will be extremely limited? Related resources A little confused with these gpu's.

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. doomsdaydave11 April 24, 2008 1:36:04 AM Hmmm.... I'm currently at a workstation that I just noticed is running an e4500 . 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. roadrunner197069 April 24, 2008 1:39:30 AM As long as you got permission to yank that CPU out go for it.
