No, you'll have to update the board first for piledriver(fx-6300) cpus, bulldozer cpus are fully supported by default bios.

Yeah, that's what I was afraid of....Do you have any suggestions for a board under 100 dollars that supports vishera out of the box? Are there any that are even any being sold right now?

990FX chipsets supports by default bios.


A bit out of my budget range, but thanks. I'll definitely consider it. Would I be correct in assuming 970 chipsets are pretty hit or miss with no certain way to tell whether it will support vishera or not?

Yes if it has the bios P1.60, but i don't know how to see the bios version on that site.
But it probably won't have that version shipped.

Actually wait. Is there any way to tell what Bios version a motherboard has before you buy it?

The board I listed should be compatible with the 6300 if it comes with at least bios P1.60, according to this:

1.60 was released in July this year so there's a pretty good chance that it'll work out of the box. There's a lot of confusion on this subject (lot of threads running in parallel) and i've been quiet frustrated myself trying to suggest people boards that may be compatible with Vishera.
