What motherboard do you have?

Basically you will need to put the 920 back in and then update your BIOS. You can go to the webpage of your manufacturer and there you can download the latest BIOS as well as the installer that will install that BIOS version. Once the BIOS is updated you can put the 980x back in and happy gaming from there!

What are your specs?

In most cases you can put your i7 920 back in, update the BIOS and then put the 980X back in and viola.
