That is only true for motherboards that have the BIOS flashback feature (Most MSI boards and some ASUS boards).You can update it without any CPU.

What exact make and model B450 motherboard do you have ?i got a new b450 motherboard along with a ryzen 7 1800x but my bios has never been updated i recently checked the bios to see that my cpu was on 70 idle but ryzen master says 45 so i was wondering if there was any way to update the bios without a apu
And you have the 1800x current installed correct ???thank you for the quick response it is a as rock b450m hdv r4.0
thanks for the reply i have a 1060 installed at the minuteAnd you have the 1800x current installed correct ???
And you also have a Video card, Correct ???
If so then you can update the BIOS using Instant Flash:
BUT, I would strongly Recommend that you do Not use a BIOS newer than v1.50.
The BIOS versions newer than that have newer AGESA versions in them and do NOT work as well with 1000 and 2000 series CPU's.
And Make SURE you update the Chipset Drivers Before you update the BIOS as stated in the BIOS version 1.50 notes:
thanks i have just downloaded the drivers and put the processor state to 10% but the issue is still happeningDid you install the latest Chipset Drivers from AMD ?
If not do that and then use the Ryzen Balanced Power Plan with the minimum Processor State set from 5 to 10%.
ok thanks will check some bios settings i will also reapply my cooler il get back to in a few minutesYeah with that setup and room temp your CPU temp should be lower.
I'd double check and make sure the Cooler is tight and I'd even check the thermal paste if it has been installed for a while.
You could also go into your BIOS and set it to Optimized Defaults and see if some setting you changed is causing the high temps.
why not update the bios with the 1800x?i got a new b450 motherboard along with a ryzen 7 1800x but my bios has never been updated i recently checked the bios to see that my cpu was on 70 idle but ryzen master says 45 so i was wondering if there was any way to update the bios without a apu
