I want to put together a Hackintosh to replace my wife's aging MacBook Pro. I have an ASUS P8P67-M Pro at rev level 3.0 that I bought almost 11 months ago for a build but never used. I am not sure what the bios rev level is and is it compatible with 22nm technology.
My question is if I buy an Intel Ivy Bridge CPU and plug it in the MB will the system boot if the bios doesn't support 22nm technology?
I suppose I could take the Sandy Bridge CPU out of my existing Hackintosh and plug it in the ASUS MB to update the bios if required but prefer not to. Also, I want to use a Ivy Bridge CPU with the ASUS MB.
