I'm interested in buying the new 930 i7 (came out sunday) with an Asus P6T motherboard. The website states that the CPU is supported since a specific version of the BIOS.
My question is, if I get both the CPU and the BIOS, and find out that the BIOS is an earlier release version, how would I flash the BIOS to that version with the CPU that I currently have? Is it even possible?
I feel like its a chicken and an egg game here.
Also, the last time I built/purchased a PC was over 8 years ago....
I'm going to purchase:
Am I missing anything? Or is there anything to add?
This is purely hypothetical but I would be able to (eventually) flash it, but in this case, I wouldn't have a CPU to flash it with because its not supported by the current BIOS version I guess? Unless there is a way of doing it without the CPU.
Let me know, and I'll pull the trigger on this thing.
