I'm not sure if I will have to or not. It all depends on what BIOS version my motherboard has. When it comes I'll be able to check it (it has a little sticker on it with BIOS info). If it has version 2, I can get the 4150.

As far as I can tell from Intel's site, the two processors are functionally identical except for the slightly higher clock speed of the 4150. What am I missing?

The 4130 is a Haswell, while the 4150 is a Haswell Refresh (only the 2nd BIOS version can use these).

I just got my motherboard and it has BIOS version 2, so I can get the 4150.
