I've just ordered an ASRock B85M MB to use with a Haswell Refresh CPU. I realised before I ordered it that I might need to update the BIOS to make it compatible. What I did not discover until after I ordered it is that this update required the installation first of an original Haswell CPU.

My question therefore is, does ASRock ship their MBs with the newest available BIOS? In which case I've got a reasonably good chance of getting one with a compatible BIOS, as this was introduced 7 months ago. Or do they stick with the original BIOS?
