Upgrading CPU from i5 6600 to i7 6700k - BIOS help

2020-04-23, 0:35 AM

I'm not the best with hardware and I wanted to upgrade my CPU for gaming.

 

I have a SKYBAY motherboard and I believe it's compatible with my intel i7 6700k CPU i bought.

 

I've asked for assistance from friends and looked up how to install it, seems pretty easy?

 

The only thing I can't seem to find the information on is if my current BIOS is up to date for my CPU. I've heard that if it isn't this can cause damage. 

 

I'm not sure what BIOS I need for the i7 6700k and can't find it on the website? I'm sorry if it't accessible and I'm just lost) 

 

My current BIOS Version is Lenovo O1ZKT32A date 12/11/2015

 

If I install my CPU currently will this cause damage? Or do I need to update my BIOS (I'm not even quite sure how I do that)
