"Some Intel H81 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Haswell Refresh CPUs." Should I be concerned?

So I'm currently looking to build a PC and I've been using PC Part Picker to help. As I was choosing parts I noticed it gave me the warning in the title and I'm not sure how serious of a problem it is, so hopefully someone can help (:

Here are the parts I'm using: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/D6nNnn

    Probably not going to be an issue since Haswell Refresh has been out for awhile now and the motherboards should have a supporting Bios from the factory. Worst case scenario would be having to borrow a CPU to update the motherboards Bios if it doesn't boot or taking it to a local shop and have them do it.
