    Default Fatal1ty 990FX ?

    Hi, sorry if this has been posted before (I'm sure it has), but my luck with 'search' is not so hott. Anways, my Fatal1ty 990FX board from newegg should be here tomorrow and i was just wondering if i need to flash the bios with my am3 chip (1090T) or if i can just drop my 8350 in and be good to go. Also, What bios is the most current/solid for the 8350. Thanks a lot!

    Assuming it's new and not one of their open box items, the BIOS chip(lower left corner) has a sticker on it that lists what BIOS version is installed.

    On the CPU Support List (<- Link) it states the board needs at least BIOS P1.70 installed to support your FX-8350

    I got my ASRock 990FX Fatality board about 3 weeks ago and it came with BIOS 1.80... I'm still running a 1090T chip in it even though tomorrow i'll be grabbing a FX-8350 to replace it. I went ahead and flashed to BIOS to version 1.90 just to be on the safe side when i install the FX-8350 chip... However, as stated previously, you should be able to use the FX-8350 right away on the board with the BIOS it's shipped with...
