Default Motherboard/PSU Compatability

I am doing a major upgrade to my system and have ordered all the parts. Of course after I made the order I found this bit of info in the PSU Manual (Cooler Master iGreen 600W Power Supply ATX V2.2 EPS12V)
http://coolermaster.com/uploads/supp...00-ASAA%5D.pdf

"This power supply does not support 5V for the motherboard for new ATX form factor operation.
Please update the BIOS setting of the motherboard."

The Mobo manual(Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe Socket AM2)
http://dlsvr03.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/...sli_deluxe.pdf
shows the 24 pin connector does indeed have a -5V pin.
It also states to use a Psu that complies with ATX 12V specification 2.0 or later.

Should I be concerned with this or will a Bios update take care of this issue?

The BIOS update should take care of it, but if not you will just have to get a new PSU that is supported by the motherboard.

Thanks Istonian.

I checked out several Psu's and couldn't find any that have any -5V outputs
including Asus units so I don't think I have any worries.

I'll know for sure in a couple of weeks when I get a chance to assemble my new build.
