So, I am planning to buy a 775-pin modded Xeon E5450 for my Gigabyte EP45-UD3LR (rev. 1.0) motherboard and I found a modded bios for this motherboard. They claim that the microcode has been added in the BIOS. There is also a screen shot of this CPU running with this motherboard in the site I found the BIOS mod.

My question is, -this system has a Core 2 Duo E8500 right now- I wonder if I will be able to continue using this CPU in case something happens. I would not like to brick the motherboard.
Would I be able to revert back the old BIOS if anything goes wrong?

Basically I want to know whether I will be able to use my own CPU with this modded BIOS. I am a newbie when it comes to modded upgrades and I'd like to know more.

Thank you.

Note: I can not change the motherboard/cpu for anything else.

Unknown. That BIOS is made by somebody in their living room. Who knows what they had to modify or overwrite to add the Xeon support.
