Will this support the new fx series out of the box?

More about will support series
  1. The 6300 is an older Fx, its bulldozer not Vishera, and if your bios is 1.3 or newer then yes, it will support it from the box

    That's not true. AMD FX-6300 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Six-Core Desktop Processor FD6300WMHKBOX

    Anyway, with that board not being a 900 series board, I would be wary, especially because I imagine most of the 800 series boards will be old stock.

    It might have a new enough BIOS, but it's a tough call.
  3. There may be an issue somewherer then, as AsRocks link I provided gives the 6300 as a BD chip,
    Bios>>> P1.30,
    The PD Version isn't listed so depending on which chip Op wants to buy...
    as that may determine if it will work or not
  4. Yeah, ASRock just F'd up. It's definitely a PD chip though (and only PD). http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Bulldozer/AMD-FX-Series%20FX-6300.html
  5. please someone anwser will this board work with the FX 6300 vishera i dont know how see its version please

    What version or should i say "Rev" is this motherboard on newegg


    The reason cause the link you gave me is a (rev. 1.x) and theres another link for Rev 3
  7. The higher number a revision is means the more recent it is, which is good :) According to the first feedback on the link you've posted that board took an 8320 with no bios update required, so new mobo's from that manf should support all Vishies no problem
    But the only way to be 100% sure of a bios chips revision is either looking at a sticker that may be present on the chip, or booting up and seeing it on the post screen, which may not be an option if the Cpu isn't supported, frustrating no?
