    Default 870 Extreme3 R2.0 Bios Help

    I purchased the motherboard to use with my am3+ cpu, unfortunately the Bios on the board needs to be updated from 1.3 to 1.5 for the board to be compatible with am3+. I cannot afford to purchase an am3 cpu just to flash my bios! Is there anything that can be done to fix this predicament besides purchasing my next board from a different manufacturer?

    I would contact Asrock and see if they can provide an updated cmos for your motherboard. I've had to do this in the past with other manufacturers and it was free of charge. other than that, you can pick up a really cheap single core chip off ebay(under $30.)

    Good Luck
