Newbie question about 990FX Extreme3

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi. So I have a 990FX Ex3 and I was going to upgrade it from 4100 to 8320/8350. But I decided to check the CPU support list just to be sure and what do I see. 8300 is there but not 8320/50. I was kinda amazed I do not know why and I want to ask you guys is there way to boot up the 8320 on this mobo ? If I can't I`ll be terribly dissapointed because of the price I have to put in to upgrade from here.

The Asrock 990FX Extreme3 CPU support list was last update in July 2012 for BIOS version 1.40.
But the latest BIOS version 1.70 was released Oct 2013, so the CPU support list is outdated by 15 months.
So as long as you update to the latest BIOS (1.70), you should not have a problem with using the 8350.
