Does this motherboard support Kaveri CPUs out of the box?

I want to get the AMD Athlon x4 860k with the MSI A78M-E45 motherboard. The Athlon is the best possible processor for the fm2+ socket (it is a kaveri), but i read that some motherboards need a BIOS update before they can be compatible with Kaveri processors, which would make me have to buy a new processor just so i can update the BIOS. Would I have to do that with this motherboard?

  • Contact store to verify the BIOS version shipped with the mobo.
  • MSI lists BIOS version requirements for processors at their website.
