I am in the process of rebuilding my system because my mobo died.
My new parts have all arrived and I have a few questions since it has been a while since I have assembled so many new parts at one time.
First, I need to know if the CPU I bought is a "Haswell" because of some PSU compatibility issues listed here
The big Haswell PSU compatibility list - The Tech Report - Page 1
The CPU I bought is an Intel Pentium Processor G3258 4 BX80646G3258 and my PSU is an older (2007) NZXT PP500 (which I dont see on the list above)
Secondly, I am worried that I will need to flash the bios on my new mobo so it will accept the new cpu.
My new mobo is an ASUS H81M-E ATX DDR3 1333 LGA 1150 and my CPU is an Intel Pentium Processor G3258 4 BX80646G3258
Will I need to flash the bios or can I just pop in the CPU chip and be good to go?
Thanks for any info that gets posted
