My System Specs

Default Looking to borrow an FX-70, FX-72 or FX-74

Does anybody have an AMD FX-70 or FX-72 or FX-74?

I'm thinking about buying one of these: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. ...And then flashing the BIOS to one of these: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. ...So that I could run it with a pair of Opteron 23**-series quad cores.

Problem is, that in order to do the BIOS flash, I need one of the CPUs that the board is originally compatible with with the stock BIOS, which are limited to the three I mentioned. Seriously, who would make a mobo with a CPU compatibility list that is precisely three entries deep? Anyway, that's neither here nor there...

So my question is - does anybody have an AMD FX-70, FX-72 or FX-74 that I could borrow just for a few moments so I can flash the BIOS on the board? I am prepared to compensate you in an appropriate manner for your act of Good Samaritanism.

Follow my folding, mining & benching shenanigans @dt_oc!

Think you can overclock? Then show us what you got!
