I am looking into building a new PC and I will be using an AMD Ryzen 9 5950X on the Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Formula motherboard. According to PC part picker, they're giving me a warning stating: "Warning! Some AMD X570 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Vermeer CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions.", so what is the best way to do this?

Thanks.

The Crosshair motherboards are easy to update with BIOS downloaded to a flash drive.

Keep in mind with a Formula, you're paying a lot of money for 5 GB LAN and aesthetics. Even if you're doing a full open loop, the VRM water block is basically pointless. Don't get anything over a Dark Hero unless you're just burning money for the sake of it.
