Some AMD A320 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Raven Ridge CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions. That means that the latest processors are not supported in the BIOS unless you update the BIOS using an older processor.

what bios problems, be specific

 

that motherboard will not let you overclock that athlon, keep that in mind

 

consider going with r3 2200, is not that more expensive but has 2 more cores

I think he means to update the BIOS to the latest drivers to let it support the processor. Sometimes the pc won't boot with a specific processor before you update the BIOS to the latest version.

if the motherboard has been sitting in a shelf for longer than 6 months, is very likely to not have the bios version to run such cpu, so the seller must guarantee you to come with latest bios or seller himself updates bios, otherwise you put cpu, put ram, plug things and might get notjing, forcing you to disasemble and return motherboard

 

that is the only problem i could see happening thanks to the old motherboard that might not come with updated bios

 

to a oid this concern you cam buy a b450 motherboard, most of them came after the 200ge release so they must support it

 

same applies for r3 2200, b450 has to support it, no matter bios version, has to
