Does it support Bulldozer, or have to update BIOS?
What is the manufacture date of this motherboard?
Older version of this model doesn't support Bulldozer straight away. Question by Taweret 12/24/2011 1
Unfortunately there is now way for us to determine which bios number would come with this motherboard. You would however want to make sure that you are running bios number 0705 to support the bulldozer cpu. Thanks Answered by Tech posted on 12/28/2011 Was this answer helpful?
