post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys when I go to install a new cpu is it just plug in and play? Or is it more complicated like changing a mobo?
Thanks

You might need to flash your BIOS or update to the most current one, but that isn't always the case.

Plug and play. The board will whine about CPU AND/OR memory change and reset CPU and memory settings. From there it will be the same as when you first had the 3570.

Just reset your bios before you insert the new cpu and you should be fine.

You don't have to worry about anything. You can just put the 3770K in and it will auto reset. Also, no need to flash the BIOS on Z77. Only flash BIOSes if you really need the update.
