Hi, I'm trying to update the bios on my motherboard so i can put in a FX chip. Im attempting to update the bios using the asus update software that came with the motherboard. I downloaded the newest bios from their website onto my computer but when i try to flash the bios using the tool i get this error. "The model of the BIOS image dosen't match the bios rom currently present.

It says my current bios rom information is:
ROM type AMI
Model M4a89gtd pro/usb3
Version 1606
date 8/24/10

Bios image information
version 3027
date 10/31/2011
