How to determine which bios shipped with asus m5a97 le r2 0 motherboard

Hello All, I nedd to update BIOS on ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 before I install 4100FX cpu, can I install graphics card to mobo to hook up monitor( to watch BIOS update) without cpu installed? This is a new build. I've downloaded bios update to USB drive on current pc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Hi, The 4100 is supported by the board. It doesn't require an update: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3Plus/M5A97_LE_R20/#CPUS
    Have you installed the CPU and the board doesn't boot?
  2. Thank you for the quick response. Not yet, just overly cautious. I'll re-post after I do the install. Thanks again.
