Hello, yesterday on Newegg I purchased the Intel i3-4150 processor as they were having a sale. Because it is a Haswell Refresh, I was wondering if it would still work with an Intel Z87 Motherboard. I have already purchased the processor, so I need to make sure I don't make a mistake when I buy a motherboard. I know EVGA and Asus have made their Z87's work with Haswell Refresh, but I'm not sure about MSI and their "GAMING" line. Does the http://www.msi.com/news/1664.html link mean that this is all good?
"Some Intel Z87 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Haswell Refresh CPUs."
