Does the motherboard box say ryzen 5000 compatible? If not, you might need a bios update in order for the pc to post.

Any reason for pairing a new cpu with a several generation old motherboard?
Yhh sorry i have decided to change the cpu as it needed an update in bios what will be the best cpu which will be compatible without bios update i think ryzen 7 3700x will do it just wants to make sure it will work without bios update i just bought the MB last week so i think it should have bios 2301

Hey there.
On ASUS’ website, it states that the CPUs compatible with that motherboard without a BIOS update (if you have the BIOS 2301) are the AMD Ryzen 3600/3600X/3700X/3800X/3900X. You should be able to find the 3700 for $260. The 3900X is $420, so I would go for that.
3700X: 8 core
3900X: 12 core

Just because you just bought it doesnt mean it will have the latest BIOS update. It could have been sitting on shelves etc for a long time.
It also has ryzen 3000 n 2000 ready sticker on it is there anyway still it will not support 3700x without bios update.

That’s interesting. I’ll look into updating the BIOS. If possible, do it in order to use the 5800X. I believe you will need to update it to BIOS 4007. I wouldn’t recommend buying a 2000 series processor to try it, because you’re just decreasing in performance the lower you go. At this point, I’d say, replace the motherboard with a valid b550 and use the 5800X.
