Do I flash the bios before or after the processor upgrade on the ga-ma790x-ud4p

I am going from a dual core to a quad core AMD processor. My MB is the GA-MA790x-ud4p. the Proc is supported but I need to go from the F4 bios to the F7. Do I flash the bios before or after the proc's are swapped?

  1. Update your BIOS before you do the cpu upgrade.
  2. +1 - update BIOS before swapping CPU's - otherwise you may find the pc wont boot with the new chip :)
  3. Always before - when it works with the current processor the bios upgrade will be more stable. And trust me you need bios updates to be as stable as it can.
  4. Thanks Folks.. that helped a lot..
