    Default GA-970A-D3 failing to update bios.

    I have recently bought borderlands 2, and momentarily after I launch it, it freezes. I have found out that it is due to an issue with the AMD fx series processors. I'd also found out that to fix this problem I have to update to the latest BIOS. Here's where the problem lies: I have a GA-970A-D3 rev1.1, and I have visited the manufacturers website and downloaded the f11 version BIOS (the latest one). Now, I've formatted my usb to FAT32 (recommended in the user manual), extracted the f11 version and placed the file I need to update the BIOS onto said usb. Whenever I use qflash to update the BIOS, I get an error message saying "BIOS check id error". This would suggest that I have used the wrong BIOS download, but to clarify; I used this website:

    I don't know what to do from here, any help or advice would be appreciated.
