Updating bios cpu support
* Note: To update your UEFI BIOS with the ‘BIOS updater for New 4th Gen Intel Core Processors’ tool you must boot your system with a current 4th generation Intel Core processor installed.When the update is complete, you can replace the current processor with a new 4th generation Intel Core processor.At 8GT/s bit rate, the interconnect performance bandwidth is doubled over PCI-E 2.0, while preserving compatibility with software and mechanical interfaces.
Have had a friend of a friend interested in me building a PC for them using this motherboard, so going to throw it in for a bargain, however still have the prior issue of having a limit to the compatible CPU's I can currently buy for the motherboard, unless I somehow update the BIOS. I installed an Ivy Bridge E into a ROG MB that had an out-of-date BIOS that did not support Ivy Bridge but only Sandy Bridge. Most people connect the monitor to the motherboard.The main purpose of the BIOS is to check all the hardware components attached to the computer and then to load the software on a boot device (hard disk or CD/DVD). The BIOS will check for all hardware components like hard disk drives, CPUs, RAM, graphics cards, keyboards, mice, optical disk drives, and other hardware. Mainly, you can use it to configure the hardware on your computer.You can modify settings for hard drives, RAM chips, the CPU and other hardware.Depending on who you talk to, you’ll quickly find that there is no one answer.Lots of people feel updating the BIOS is not necessary unless there’s a specific reason while others feel updating to the latest version is always a good idea.
