My friend is buying a new PC and he's getting the Ryzen 5 3600, and the Gigabyte B450 Aorus Elite motherboard.
Will they be compatible out of the box???? Or will he have to update the bios manually?

Most B450 mobos are now shipped with the bios update already applied, but he'll need to check with the retailer as they should state whether it is Ryzen Zen 2 compatible, if in doubt assume it hasn't and suggest he look at other retailers.

Most motherboards ship with an updated BIOS, but if it isn't all you should have to do is update it in order to get it to work.

B450 may not have well overclocking support for it though.
