    Will I Need To Up Date My BIOS?

    Looking on the Asus website about my Mobo (GRYPHON Z87) for my new build and it says "Core i7-4770K since BIOS 1007" I have not powered my PC to check version, but on another part of the Asus web site it says to find the BIOS version "The Motherboard revision is printed on the board itself next to the model name." mine says 1.03

    1.03 which I do not understand as the BIOS numbers are 1007, 1206 and 1405.

    Confused again.

    The firmware version is distinct from the PCB revision

    The print on the mobo is the hardware version, not the bios.

    Press delete when booting to enter the bios, the version will be displayed on the main page.

    1007 is the original release bios so you will be fine. It would be unusual for a Z87 motherboard not to support the oiginal cpu's that launched with it. Personally i like to keep the bios up to date but others prefer to leave it alone if it is working ok. Either way, a 4770k will work fine in your board as it is.

    I also like to update my BIOS, I think the Z87 series has an easy USB update method. It's quick and painless.

    BIOS updates are usually to support new CPUs/stability fixes.
