Last 4 numbers on the serial code on the mb denote the bios version
the other way is to buy a pre flashed bios chip

Will I need to update the bios and to which version should I update too?

Also Is it possible to update the bios with the FX8320 CPU in the socket? as I have been told that you need to get a phenom to be able to update the bios.

Edit: How can I find out what Bios It has before I even run it and also If an older architecture CPU is needed to update the biosI'm in a pickle as the 8320 is the only one I have for that socket.

The Z will run a FX with any bios it comes with. No need to worry. Mine came with the very first bios and ran a 8350 without issue. Currently I'm running the 1201 bios.

Do you have the new board in hand? The BIOS version shipped with the board should be stamped right on it. Vishera was supported officially at version 0806, but Bulldozer was there right from the beginning.

As Pawel said, I would probably just install the Vishera in the Z from the get-go. You should be able to get into the BIOS well enough to take the step of doing a Flash update.

Your sig shows you already have Phenom X4, but looking at the supported processor list, you need to be on the Phenom II series.

In the tourist info department, I noticed Newegg continues to sell the 965, although even at $85 I wouldn't buy one just for this purpose; although it might be a good step for your older rig.

Let us know how you make out with getting the new system up and running! thumb.gif

Topic is AMD chipset and RAID drivers.

I noticed AMD's website posts slightly newer versions than what Asus provided for our board. I imagine the risk to update is very slight at best. Do y'all use AMD's drivers directly or typically stick with what comes from Asus?

When I think back to the days when the M2N32 was still actively supported, I believe I used Nvidia's drivers directly instead of what Asus provided.

Ok no worries I have googled this but I don't know where the serial number is located on the board, would you know where it is?

It took me a while to dig this up. I tried to underline where to look at your board. In this particular photo you will see the 0404 designation which was the original release of the board. My board says 1003 as it was a later vintage.

Please note this is for the non-Z Crosshair Formula V, although I suspect Ay-Soos probably kept this part the same.

FWIW, as I studied the layout of that Z board, I'm quite envious as it is significantly improved in a lot of places over the non-Z. Hopefully there will be a Crosshair VI coming out soon and will just wait for that.

ahh yes It's always like that, you buy something and then a few months later something new comes out and you get jealous again, It kinda gets annoying sometimes that computers advance so quickly

Anyway back to the issue at hand I just checked and it says 0704. Checked Asus site, it supports the 8150 but my bios is before the 806 bios that supports the 8320 eek.gif Would that work with my Piledriver CPU?

so your bios was the 225? and that really worked straight away with the 8350 enough to let you update the bios?

it should boot up if you install / flash the bios with one that supports bulldozer. But not one before that, you would need too update to the latest bios for piledriver support to work proporley.

I'm assuming you subscribe to the notion of staying current on the latest BIOS. With that in mind, doing the update now is the best to save time when you start turning knobs to OC or whatever customizations you choose to make.
All you're really trying to do right now is be able to access the code in BIOS that will allow you to flash up to the latest BIOS version, not boot into an OS and try to do stability runs.

Are you connecting that custom water loop to the 8320 right from the get go?
