Could someone please tell me if this CPU here, http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?e=995734
will be compatible with this motherboard, http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=870%20Extreme3%20R2.0
cpu compatibility list is here, http://www.asrock.com/mb/cpu.asp?Model=870%20Extreme3%20R2.0

I tried looking for myself and it says 6100 on the motherboard compatibility list but im not 100% sure if it will work, also will I need to update the motherboards bios before I can even run the cpu? how would I do that if the cpu doesnt work?

thanks in advance to anyone who can help

It will work fine as long as the mobo has bios P1.50

If your building a new pc that motherboard is pretty average.
