8320 + 990fxa-d3 issue (not solved but closed)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Okay I'm in melbourne atm and I have just purchased the parts to put together a computer for a mate...
I did so... and it wasn't until I couldn't get ANY form of post I realized the fine print at the bottom of the box "bios upgrade required for AM3+ FX cpu's" yet at the top of the box it says AM3+ in giant letters... thanks gigabyte..

Anyway... how do I solve this issue when I have no other cpu to put in temporarily to update the bios? is there a way around this?

Do you have a mate with a Phenom or maybe an old Athlon you can temporarily plug in? I think the AM3+ socket and 990FX chipset are compatible right back to the old Athlon series.

Nope I'm in Melbourne I know nobody here apart for the mate I'm building this for...
And his old pc that I'm using atm is rocking a core 2 intel.

If I was at home I have multiples... but I live hours away and I won't be coming back here for many months.
