Hi Wimsbios Forum!

I am trying to install a modded Core i7 4980HQ on my Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD3H-BK Rev 1.0
I put in the CPU but the PC is caught in a boot loop and doesnt boot. The seller stated that the CPU will not work in any Gigabyte Board whatsoever. However I found this post ... bios/32861 where someone was able to use the CPU with injected microcodes in a Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H.

Can someone here help me and possibly mod a BIOS that could make this miracle happen? Thank you in advance!

kind regards
