Most manufactures now ship BIOS that can support most AM3 CPUs. Gumburcules September 4, 2010 5:14:12 PM I bought this motherboard about a year ago(feb/26/09 when built) WR2 a c 203 à CPUs a b À AMD September 4, 2010 5:16:22 PM You'll want to use Asus Easy Flash 2. Read pages 4-5 and pages 4-35 of your manual. WR2 a c 203 à CPUs a b À AMD September 4, 2010 5:17:00 PM Did you check what version of BIOS is installed now? Shadow703793 a b à CPUs September 4, 2010 5:21:31 PM ^+1. Check BIOS version first. Download CPUZ and it will tell you. mosox a b à CPUs September 4, 2010 5:22:04 PM Get the Athlon since on that mobo you can't unlock the Phenom, for that you need a mobo with AMD chipset. You can check the BIOS version Accessories/System Tools/System information. http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=8jYT1euVL4wCyH04&... Gumburcules September 4, 2010 6:00:41 PM Bios revision 0502 am i doing it right? WR2 a c 203 à CPUs a b À AMD September 4, 2010 6:11:02 PM Yes you are. Bios Version 0502 dates from 11/24/2008. And the CPU support list for Athlon II X4 635 wants Bios Version 1402 03/19/2010 (or higher). No reason not to use the latest Version 1507. What version of Windows are you using? Gumburcules September 4, 2010 6:30:43 PM upgrading to windows 7 isnt a problem but for now im using XP 32 bit I just havent had the time to reformat and all that jazz. WR2 a c 203 à CPUs a b À AMD September 4, 2010 6:35:48 PM I think you want to update the BIOS. Then install the new CPU and get everything running stable. And after that do the OS upgrade Gumburcules September 4, 2010 6:39:47 PM sounds good can you refer me to a guide(stupidproof if possible upgrading bios is one of those things i almost never do because im scared of it).
