Hi everyone ! I am very new to building and am very excited and nervous. My first problem is my bios. I bought the Gigabyte MA790-UD4H motherboard and the Phenom II x3 720 cpu . It says the motherboard is am3 compatible but what if its not ? How can i flash my bios if my chip wont work ? Or am i screwed ?!?! Any help would be greatly appreciated. My parts so far are : Raidmax Smilodon case, Phenom II x3 720, Gigabyte MA790GP-UD4H board, 4 Gigs OCZ ddr2 800 mhz., LG GH22 multi driveand a WD Cavier Blue 640 gb HDD.
I did look there and saw it listed but i saw i needed f2 bios and wasnt sure if thats what i had. My processor is coming from Newegg tomorrow so i should booting up for the first time hopefully tomorrow night !!! Keeping my fingers crossed. Thank you for easing my mind a little. Will definitely let you all know how it goes.
