I tried, but I received a poorly written email believe it or not. Perhaps I'll try calling Newegg or Amazon. They're the people I intend to buy from. I'll leave this thread open a little longer; perhaps someone will come by with valuable information.
Hm, I may order it anyways. I think some guys from the computer club at my college may be able to help me out if I run into any trouble. Although, I'll make sure to ask first. One of the biggest lessons I've learned in life: Don't make assumptions.
I'll make this simple. If you have the 970 Extreme R2.0, you won't have to update because there is currently only 1 Bios for that mobo on AsRock's website. If you have the normal 970 Extreme, depending on when you bought it, you may have to to a Bios update.
