[Solved]ASUS Maximus III Gene (i3 Support)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Anyone know if I would be able to boot up the board in title with an i3-550? I don't have any other intel gear to be able to flash it to get it to work(if no basic support out of the box). Guess I'm asking, I need to be positive if that board will be able to POST at least to be able to update the BIOS get my i3 going full throttle. Thanks(aka reps)!!
