I plan on upgrading my processor: AMD Phenom II x2 521 to an AMD Phenom II x4 960T. Do I need to to do a BIOS update for it?

Its specs



and its motherboard supports


  • AMD Phenom II X6 10xxT Six-Core (Thuban core)
  • AMD Phenom II X4 9xx/9xxe/8xx Quad-Core (Deneb core)
  • AMD Phenom II X3 7xx/7xxe Triple-Core (Heka core)
  • AMD Phenom II X2 5xx (Callisto core)
  • AMD Athlon X4 6xx/6xxe (Propus)
  • AMD Athlon X3 4xx/4xxe (Rana)
  • AMD Athlon X2 2xx/2xxe (Regor)
  • AMD Sempron Single Core 1xx (Sargas core)

The AMD Phenom II x4 960T is not on the above list therefore upgrading BIOS MAY help or you have to use other processor.
