ASRock X79 Extreme 4 BIOS upgrade Tags: Motherboards BIOS ASrock Last response: May 11, 2012 11:43 AM in Motherboards Share razing32 April 29, 2012 2:21:45 PM Hi, I want to buy an ASRock X79 Extreme 4 motherboard and use it with Intel Core i7-3820 @ 3.60GHz CPU. I have read on comments on various online shops that certain BIOS versions may not work and you may need to do an upgrade. I have never done a BIOS upgrade and all guides I found mention floppy disks. Is it possible to do it some other way from CD or USB stick ? Is there a step by step beginner guide ? Please let me know. Thank you.

There should be multiple guides @ the manufacturer website to show you how. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer razing32 May 11, 2012 11:43:46 AM Yes , the USB thing worked like a charm. Went step by step just like the official guide. Guess i wasn't sure if FAT32 was the appropriate format , since a lot of guides make reference to floppy disks. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
