Since BIOS updates can add new features and considerable stability to their products, it was definitely in the manufacturer's best interest to find an easier and more fault resistant way for consumers to update a BIOS.Flashing the BIOS is still not an operation that the large majority of PC users are even aware of, and that's something that we'd like to try to change.All the while there was a lurking danger - if something went wrong, you would be left with an essentially unusable motherboard…
However, you’ll perform the same basic process on all motherboards.
Hey At the minute I have this motherboard: Asus - B150-PRO D3 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard And this CPU: Intel - Core i5-6500 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor I would like to upgrade to this CPU: Intel - Core i7-7700K 4.2GHz Quad-Core Processor.pcpartpicker informs me: "Some Intel B150 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Kaby Lake-S CPUs.
Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions"My question is - how do I know if I have the correct bios?
If you do not encounter any system instability or bugs with the current BIOS version, we suggest that you keep it.
If you determine to flash BIOS, you are taking a personal risk of BIOS flash failure.
