Hello everybody, I'm interested if ASUS P8B75-V supports Ivy bridge processors without having to flash BIOS?
The reason I'm getting B75V instead of Z77 is because I'm not planning to OC.

Yes but it says same thing for H61 Mobo, which needs flashing before it can support Ivy

Ok, I looked at the CPU support list and the motherboard will require flashing to use Ivy
Bridge processors.
Flashing a BIOS is generally relatively easy but it would be much easier to buy a Z77 motherboard.
If you are comfortable with flashing a BIOS go for the one you are looking at, otherwise a z77 board would probably be better.

How can you tell that P8B75 Mobo will need flashing? Also I have no use for z77 Mobo.

Actually, it depends on the version of bios the board shipped with. You can identify the four-digit bios build on a long, thin white label with a bar code that's literally on the edge of the board.

The last 4 digits of this sticker identifies the bios build (I.e. 0906) Then check the CPU support list at

So in other words: you won't know until you get the motherboard. There's a very similar thing happening that the 990FX motherboards require a flash to support Vishera chips.
