I have recently purchased a Ryzen 7 2700x that has bent pins with the expectation of fixing it and making sure it would work before buying a new motherboard.
I could try fixing the CPU pins, and then use my friends motherboard (AB350m gaming 3 micro atx) to make sure the CPU works.
(this is so I wont spend money on a motherboard and then come to find that I cant fix the CPU.
My question is that if the CPU were to work once I fixed the pins, will I be able to put it into my friends motherboard without having to update the bios?
Then after I see that it has worked (hopefully) will they then be able to put their first gen ryzen (ryzen 5 1600x) without any problems
Thanks so much :)

That question took only 10 seconds to find answer for. It's compatible but only with new BIOS version F20 and up https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-AB350M-Gaming-3-rev-1x/support#support-cpu
