That board does need the F7 BIOS update dated 10-22-2012 which isn't quite the latest and greatest (there's a F8a update since) to support the FX6300 processor found here I'm going to venture that if the board is purchased now, it should have that update but there really is no guarantee since there is no way to know how long the board has been sitting on the shelf
Hope it helps

well thank you for the answer, but this mb its out of stock, i was thinking about the

M5A97 EVO (not the rev 2.0)

i checked and it supports fx 6300 with also bios update... no problem

is ASUS M5A97 EVO a good mb compared to 970a UD3?

thanks again

The Asus board seems to offer a few more features. Asus and Gigabyte both have rather large fan bases, I think you should be okay with either board.
