Hello.

 

I am building a new PC and I have heard that there needs to some kind of a BIOS update done when combining new generation of ryzen cpus with MSI B450 Tomahawk. I am using Ryzen 5 3600 + MSI B450 Tomahawk. Do I need to do any bios updates before putting the cpu into the motherboard socket or can I start building the PC straight away?

 

Thank you very much for replying.

Do you already have the motherboard? If not, get the tomahawk MAX version. It won't need an update

even if it wasn't max the Tomahawk has a bios flash feature you can use without a CPU iirc, but if its max then you are good to go
