Hey guys I am just about to buy the Asrock Extreme 4 motherboard with a i5 3570k. Is it true I need a sandy bridge processor to update the bios on the Extreme 4 before I can pop in the 3570k? So if i buy a 3570k with this mobo and not have a spare sand bridge lying around,am I done for good?lol Or is there a way to get around this? Please help. Thanks in advance guys.

P.S How much better is 3570k over 2500k anyhow? In actual gaming scenario how much more FPS would 3570k over 2500k? Using msi gtx 660 ti with this setup.Thanks again. And pleaseee reply :hello:

I believe you will not need any bios updates, if memory serves me well the Z77 Chipset has native support for Ivy Bridge.

Edit: I'd say something around 5% increase when at the same clock speeds. So Ivy Bridge is a bit faster...

z77 chipset was made in mind for 3rd generation intel core processors(ivybridge cpus) any z77 mobo supports by default any sanybridge or ivybridge cpu(no bios update necessary).
Also that's one of the most popular boards with that cpu.
Unless you mean the asrock Z68 Extreme4 ?

Ivy Bridge, clock for clock is 9% faster for raw computational power.

Yes,I was talking about the z77 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Thats the link to the mobo. So are you 100% positive that I wont get into trouble with that mobo and 3570k(I mean with no BIOS update) right out of the box? I wont be needing a sandy bridge to flash it first right? Pleasee reply and thanks in advance :love:

It will work, like i said that chipset was made for those cpus, that board is a best seller with that precise cpu.
I already gave you a link with the mobo for supported cpus, people on the forum already told you.
