the bios actually is very easy and usually requires no changes to make unless something doesn't work. if you run into a problem we can help you. it is hard to fry anything unless you are completely reckless and do not read any of the instructions that that show how to mount the processor or if you accidentally connect the speaker to the USB panel.
