KFSN4-DRE BIOS chip swap?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I purchased a motherboard off of Fleabay (you'd think I'd have learned something by now...) but the item I received wasn't what was listed. It's close, but the KFSN4-DRE only accepts quad core Opterons and not hex core, where as the iKVM/IST variant supports hex cores. Would I able to switch out the BIOS chip from the standard DRE to the iKVM/IST bios chip?

The physical chip? Hell no.

Only two things you can do:

1) Return it under "Item not as described" (ebay is actually decent about this) and get your money back.

2) Sell it yourself.

I figured. It was worth a shot. Right now I'm exchanging emails with the seller who also happens to have a no return policy. Kind of annoying really...
