Ive bought a new setup, but there is a slight chance the motherboard will not accept the 3rd gen Ryzen until the BIOS is upgraded. 

 

Is there anyone on the North Shore/Hibiscus Coast area that has a Gen 1/2 Ryzen I could borrow on standby ? :)

 

Im hoping the board does have a new enough BIOS but never know.......

Not on the North Shore but I do have the necessary CPUs to sort this out, so if you get really stuck you could courier your CPU & Board down...

Just be aware that a lot of mainboards lose support for the older athlon CPUs before they get support for 3rd gen Ryzen - you've got to do the updates in quite a specific order.

I thought most new boards allowed you to flash bios with no CPU?





CPU: Intel 3770k| RAM: F3-2400C10D-16GTX G.Skill Trident X |MB:  Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H-WB | GFX: GV-N660OC-2GD gv-n660oc-2gd GeForce GTX 660 | Monitor: Qnix 27" 2560x1440

Only high end ones with "flashback" - I went budget ;)

Yeah, will see how I go. If can only get so far and still find I'm stuck, I'll take it into Playtech/PBtech and get them to do it.

Depends on the motherboard I used it to flash my gigabyte bios and it worked well :)
