Hello fellow enthusiasts. If anyone has a definite answer to this, I would fully appreciate it, because I can't seem to find the answer on the MSI website. Here's the deal: I have a 3700x which performs well, never had any "issues" with it. I'd like to upgrade to the Gen3 5700x CPU. I have a MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC...outstanding motherboard! Does ANYONE know if I buy the 5700x and replace the 3700x, will IT WORK, and what BIOS update will I need to make certain that it does? Currently, I have the BIOS update from like 2020, the one before the latest (2022) Beta update. Does anyone have info on this...or do I have spend 30 minutes on the phone with tech support at my local Micro Center? LOL! Seriously....love you all, thank you.
