Default ASUS motherboard

i'm thinking about getting this mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131363 but some of the reviews say that it didnt come with the right BIOS for the AMD 2 955 and some say it did.
If i ordered it soon would it come with the right BIOS?

anyone?

it is fine, newegg reviewers are usually noobs that don't know what they are doing.

If not all you need to do is flash your bios.

The board should POST even if it's BIOS isn't updated. Then all you need to do is to put the BIOS on a USB stick (doesn't even need to be made bootable), enter the BIOS and then flash using ASUS's EZFLash tool.

If the board posts you will be fine to use the EZflash tool with your CPU. My board needed a BIOS flash when I got my 955 but it still booted, POSTed, and ran but the CPU wasn't at its rated speed. If it doesn't than you may need to have a different CPU. (as long as it isn't something else causing the board not to post... AKA DOA components)
