Im planning out a gaming pc build (my first ever) and was planning on using a B450 Motherboard with an AMD RYZEN 5 3600 since every suggestion i receive is to use a B450 with a 3600 CPU, however pcpartpicker.com continuously says that a B450 motherboard is incompatible with a RYZEN 5 3600. Was wondering if pcpartpicker.com is incorrect or not. If you have any opinions or suggestions for a different motherboard, that would be greatly appreciated
Some are not compatible with Ryzen 3xxx out of the box, since they're older than the CPU. They do require a BIOS update. However, a lot of boards manufactured recently do have the necessary BIOS out of the box. They package will have a sticker on it.
