    bios and supported cpu's

    if there's a cpu newer than your bios do you always 100% of the time have to upgrade to a bios newer than your cpu?

    i would guess no, but i wasn't sure.

    VRP why talk in possibilities. If you have a direct question about a product you currently own or are thinking about buying then ask. Just don't spout off generalities about hypothetical products.

    with my mb in my system specs, i have the 1002 bios. the newest bios on asus' website says "new cpu's supported." [note: the 1002 bios i had said the same thing, but assumedly for the 9850.)

    is there any chance i wouldn't have to upgrade my current bios if i wanted one of the processors explicitly said to be supported by the newest bios?

    i was wondering, b/c i thought maybe i would want a future phenom if it ran cooler than the current ones. but right now i'm fine with my x2.

    I have the current board in your sig and the 9850 works just fine in it. It also worked fine with the previous BIOS. I saw no difference when I installed 1002.

    Strange things can happen when upgrading a bios. Only do so if you must. The old expression, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" could not be more applicable.
