All of the intel haswell refreshes seem to need an updated bios before working on the majority of motherboards in my price range >£100 Is there any work aroud for this as i really want to buy either a i5-4690K or a i7-4790K. I dont have a spare intel cpu laying around... is there anyway to get aroud this ?

I think all Z87 need a bios update, but there are many Z97 that work (some are later revisions with updated bios)

there are many, you should check the revisions, I think (not sure) that asus and asrock let you update without the cpu just in case

I think this one ships with bios compatible

asrock z97 extreme4

edit: this one seems to be a nice mobo
