Question Ryzen 7 2700X on ASROCK AB350M Mainboard

Hello Community!

I want to upgrade my old Ryzen 5 1400 to a Ryzen 7 2700X and i was wondering if it is suitable although it is not on the official list of supported CPU's.
The reason i want to upgrade is because the old CPU bottlenecks my GTX 1070Ti so i am looking around for a new suitable CPU.

My mainboard is a ASROCK AB350M.

What do you guys think? Would it fit anyway if i update my bios or is it just impossible? If it is impossible with this mainboard which CPU would you suggest ? :)

It is on the list, they forgot to list x model but it's same thing just better binned.
Yes, all you need to do is to update BIOS. (v 4.50).
