Was having problems booting modded factorio only to find out they no longer support 32-bit, so wanted to upgrade the CPU.



Will I need to flash a new bios if I get a W3690 as an upgrade? Is there a better option I could use?



Mobo is x58A-UD3R Rev 1.0



Thanks


For Xeon W3690, you have to use at the F6 bios or higher. Most of the i7 9xx series X processors usually are more money.

You should run 3 or 6 sticks of DDR3 also to have triple channel. You can find usually triple channel 1600 sets for sale on eBay as some still have it laying around. I still have DDR3 sticks laying around, lol
