I am wanting to get a ryzen 5 1600x for christmas with my rx 560 2gb (upgrading next year possibly)
I was wondering if an amd x370 will fit/allow a ryzen 5 1600x and be able to sustain it?
Thank you :)

When you settle on a board, check the board's web page/support for the CPUs it supports. See what BIOS version is needed for the Ryzen 5 1600X. If the board is new, chances are good it will have a late enough BIOS. If used, ask the seller to check the BIOS version installed or what CPU he had in it last. Then check the BIOS version for it to see if it is what you need or later.

Worse case... AMD will loan you a CPU to update the BIOS if needed. But I doubt you'll need to go that route.

Which motherboard?
Everytime I try to send a link of all my specs etc. it says I am spamming. so if you could add woah#4806 on discord. I can provide a link showing my motherboard etc.
Yes, practically any MB with x370 chipset will be able to do that and more. Even b350 and A320 can do that too.
Also mike. if that is true. i can easily use the ryzen 5 1600x with my x370?

You don't need to send a link. Just type in the make/model of the board. NVM, not all that important, I guess.
And yes, the X370 supports the 1600X out of the box.
thank both of you so much!
