    Is it possible?

    I have one Dell 730x main board (MSI-7543), but the BIOS is unsupported for newest CPU like i7 980X.

    Just downloaded other X58 MB BIOS from MSI with i7 980X support. If I get the new microcode from the newer MB BIOS and replace only the newer cpu microcode to the older MB BIOS, the board would be working?!;)
    OR not so easy, still have to change BIOS code?

    any help?

    If this Ami bios amitool can do it but have a recover disc just in case you brick it also make sure that the bios you get it from has the same hardware that your do
