C3 stepping question.

Hello, I have a MSI K9N2G Neo and I am looking to upgrade to a AMD Phenom II X4 925 but I have a couple questions. Will stepping/revision of a CPU effect compatibility?

I see in the CPU Support that Phenom II X4 925 C2 is supported but would the same CPU but C3 stepping effect weather or not it worked with my motherboard?

MSI K9N2G Neo CPU Support list - http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=prodcpu2&prod_no=1493&maincat_no=1 (HDX925WFK4DGI) Stepping - C2)

AMD Phenom II X4 925 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103656 (HDX925WFK4DGM) Stepping - C3)

Sorry if this is common knowledge I haven't been able to find information on it anywhere.
Thanks for your time.

  1. You'll be fine, the only thing that you may need to do would be to flash the BIOS to the latest version.
