Reset BIOS first before replacing unlocked processor?

Recommended Posts

I am going to replace my Sempron 140 which is unlocked to Athlon II x2 4400e. But before removing it or replacing anything, do I need to reset the BIOS? Because I remember that unlocking increases voltages or something. I am a bit new to unlocking. I thought of this problem right after disassembling the whole thing.

Bottomline: Do I need to reset the BIOS (because it unlocked the Sempron 140) before replacing a new processor?

I have a BIostar A780L mobo.

You don't have to, but it's good practice to do so after replacing a CPU or flashing your BIOS, just to be safe.

I am going to reset it then. I'm scared that my PC will go *pop!*

Not because it will be destroyed but everyone here might wake up from the noise. It's 3AM here and everyone is asleep. LOL

Seriously I'm scared.

Shouldnt matter. The bios will detect the new cpu, read it and auto setting everything it needs to run.  Of course go into the Bios and double check everything.
