  1. If you can't afford a new board, or waiting two weeks for a replacement rma board, then I wouldn't do it unless your new cpu won't post. You should always check the file number at the top of the post screen and compare it to the files listed under "cpu support" on the motherboard's webpage. If the file number is the same or higher, then you don't need to flash.
  2. Ok thank you for letting me know its something that I dont need to do then.
