  1. Hi,
    Yes it does require the 1201 BIOS version. Have you bought the board?
  2. no not yet
  3. It doesn't feature the Flashback and the 1201 version was released in September 2012. There are chances to receive an older board and you'll need a supported CPU for being able to flash the BIOS. Or you can buy a BIOS chip programmed with the latest version (the chip is not soldered, but on socket).
  4. can u help me find motherboard tht has the bios

    www.netplus.com.au

    www.ple.com.au

    www.austincomputers.com.au

  5. I can't find one at those sites. Other options?
    Or http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/New-Bios-Chip-Asus-M5A78L-M-LX-V2-/180983650889 . It's easy to replace it:

    You can use a screwdriver for carefully removing the chip.
  6. or i can ask the store to update the bios for me
  7. Sure, try firstly contacting them.
  8. anyway is this mobo ok for overclocking the fx 4300 and i have this cpu cooler master hyper tx3 evo
  9. It's a basic board, not designed for overclocking, but this doesn't mean that you can't try/test.
