Can I flash bios without the right cpu?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok I am 99.999999% sure of the answer, but I have to ask so don't rip my head off. There is no way to flash the bios on my 680i A1(sig rig) without an older 775 cpu right? All I own are e8400's.

Yep it's fine. You SHOULD be able to flash with any cpu that works with the board. Assuming it passes the POST with it in of course.

It won't even get to the bios splash screen.

Then it looks like you need a 90 or 65nm LGA775 cpu

Well looks like my shiny new piece of intel artwork will really stand out.
