Hi, I have a phenom 945 cpu at the moment,I am planning to install my new phenomx4 970be into my m4n78mobo.Will I need to update the bios and if so whats the best way of going about it?
Check your bios file number at the post screen; most are listed at the top. Then go to asus webpage for your board and look for "cpu support". It will list the bios file required for the 970 cpu. Then read the directions and decide if you can use a windows flash program provided by asus. I haven't used asus in a long time; you may also be able to use a floppy or usb drive.
