What motherboard? certain 890fx motherboards have bios updates for the fx line. my 890fx crosshair IV takes up to the 8350 on the am3 platform, AMD does not guarantee the cpu to work on the motherboard, even if it has the bios update, but shouldn't ruin anything if attempted and the update was done.
