I'd like to add a related question if I may.
Will you need a new bios to even boot. I've ordered a 65nm 4200X2 & going to be running it on a Biostar 570 Ultra. I don't have any other AM2 CPU, so hopefully it will at least boot, even if at the wrong speed ?

Hi,

I doubt a BIOS update will be needed. There is no significant change with the core itself, the difference relates to the voltage which is a little lower. The default CPU voltage is not a function of the BIOS as such, a CPU can be coded with one of a variety of different voltages.
