My motherboard didn't come with zen 3 support out of the box so I will have to update it through USB BIOS Flashback so can I have the CPU in the socket before I do a USB BIOS Flashback update?

CPU - AMD Ryzen 5 5600X
Motherboard - ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING

edit:

for some reason i read this as the 3600x and not 5600x. :(

so yah you need the newer BIOS for the 5000 series chips.

thanks for catching that skynet as obviously i answered the wrong question :)
