I looked up the specs here: http://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/Z87A/specifications/
Says it supports 4th gen socket 1150. However some are telling me I may need a bios flash for these CPUs. I'm wondering if that's because technically Asus has upgraded the bios and all new ones off the line are compatible but current older stock at retailers may not be up to date? Or perhaps it's compatible after you flash the bios and they are leaving out the detail that you have to do that step before it's compatible?
Also some are saying I need the z97 series to get the faster SATA support for my SSD. However the specs say it supports SATA 3 @ 6gb/s. Am I missing something? Seems like it's good to go.
Please advise; thanks!
