Hi,
Yes it does require the 1201 BIOS version. Have you bought the board?

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).

It's a basic board, not designed for overclocking, but this doesn't mean that you can't try/test.
