Hi there, I've recently decided I'm going to build my own pc. I've had the part list decided for a while, and when i came on today an incompatibility appeared.
'Some AMD 970 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Vishera CPUs.'
I'm really new to PC building, and I'm partially worried on how this works.
From what I've read I should do the following: Go to the biostar website download the latest bios update for the motherboard on a usb drive from my Laptop. Put it in the PC and start it up press f10/f12/etc to the BIOS
Here is my build: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/2xgQQ And from there, update it, finding the file.
Is this true? Should I not install my operating system until i updated the BIOS?
