Or will the bios need updating?

I see very few issues with pre-FX BIOS and the ASUS M5A99X EVO is a high volume seller so places like NewEgg would have sold out of the pre-FX BIOS b now. villa_22 July 10, 2012 1:45:40 PM Ok mate thanks for the reply. Is there a way for me to find out without putting the whole thing together first? And is there an easy way to update the bios? Or will I need an older amd chip? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
