Are you buying local or on-line? An X370 motherboard could require a BIOS update. This page shows that the F20 BIOS is the minimum required and if you look on the downloads page you will see it was released about a year ago. Is it possible that you could get a motherboard that has been sitting in a warehouse for a year? Yes. Is it likely? Probably not if you buy from a large retailer.

First generation motherboards that have the BIOS update generally have a sticker on the box saying it is "Second generation" compatible. If you get a box with no indication, then it might be incompatible. You would then need a first gen CPU to update the BIOS.
Even if you have a compatible BIOS, I would recommend you update to the latest before progressing with your build.
