I have heard that the bios that came with the m5a99x evo r2.0 have problems with the fx 8320. If that's the case, what should i do? If i got to update the bios, i have to do it with another cpu (which i dont have) or without one it would work?
I dont know too much about this so excuse if the answer is obvious :)

You need a compatible processor first to update BIOS.

Unless it is an ASUS MB--which it is--in which case you can update the BIOS even without a CPU or RAM present using their USB BIO Flashback which I wish everyone would build into their system.

I wish everyone did dual-BIOS, but I'm pretty sure this is all patented trademarked crap.
