I’m building a pc I’m worried about the Msi b550-a pro not being 5000 series ready out of the box. my question is
Will the motherboard be ready for 5000 series out of the box and if it’s not how risky is doing the bios flash back?

I’m getting the Ryzen 5 5600


Here’s the motherboard link

The MSI website lists the compatible CPU list with a Bios for download, so it seems that a Bios flash is required.

Bios flashing is generally safe for modern motherboards, the biggest risk might be a power outage, so if you can't remember when the last power outage happened, you are safe to go.
