Question PCPartPicker says a 5600X might have an issue with a B550M MOBO, what's the problem?

You can end up with a board with bios F3 or older installed, which don't have the code necessary to recognize the 5600X.
This mobo doesn't have a bios flashback function either, so if you draw the short straw, you've no choice but to return the mobo, except if you already have an older Ryzen cpu nearby.

Know any relatively cheap 5th Gen ready motherboards?
