Vishera microcode is, to the best of my knowledge, the same support regardless of which Vishera. BUT, I'd call first before investing in one.
Better yet, send a PM to "ASRock TSD - Emily" using THIS link and ask about FX-4300 support on the board. She readily responds to PM's and is a valuable asset here at TweakTown.
