The [Official] MSI K9N2 SLI PLATINUM Owners Club - Page 5

Hi Icyclutch!! Welcome to the club! Feel free to stick the tag club under your sig! I'll have your name up soon.

To answer your question, yes this board does support the Phenom II 940 according to MSI CPU support list. You can check on the first page here of the first post under "CPU Support List". It is supported since BIOS 3.5

http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=pr...3&maincat_no=1

If you do need help flashing your BIOS, the MSI HQ USB tool is the best way to go and it is easy as a pie.

Hope that answer your questions!

Yea it works on it, even the 955, for AM3 CPUs you have to update the bios though.

If your computer is working fine, then there's no reason for you to update your BIOS. Only if you need a certain/specific hardware that is needed to work for the motherboard may be required to flash. (Ex: updating your CPU)

Hope this answers your question.
