According to ASUS the motherboard, M5A97 R2, with BIOS 1006 is compatible with the FX8350 processor. Should I update the BIOS - this can be risky? The Computer works perfectly except if I try to restart the computer. If I shut down the computer it also will freeze upon restarting. To restart the computer I must shut off electricity to the computer and turn it on again and press the start button on the computer to start - the computer will then run perfectly. I usually do not shut down my computer; usually put it in sleep mode. The sleep mode works well - no problem starting from the sleep mode. Any solution - Thanks Very Much. Love this processor.
