I have a couple questions, first of all I know the motherboard will support ivy bridge with a bios update, but will I be able to put the ivy bridge in and at least have the motherboard post so that I can actually update it? If not, what would a solution be? I have another desktop chip at home but it is an old core 2 duo, could that work?
Also, does anyone have a link to a good guide on how to put it all together? I have taken out individual parts, etc. before but never built one from scratch.
A link to how to update a mobo bios would be nice as well.
Also, on the fence about returning my z68 for a z77. Held off on a z77 because I was worried about bugs since its a newer motherboard. Read a lot of threads already about it, but are motherboads known for being buggy when they first come out? Are the z77's buggy now? How long have they been out? Thanks!
