Recommended Posts

I am planning on upgrading my cpu from a ryzen 7 1700 to a ryzen 5 3600. Would i need to make a bios update on my b 450 motherboard.  If yes what version would I need. Thanks.

    PC PartPicker immediately flags it as a necessary bios-update case, so you know. As for the version, I am not sure you would have to wait for someone smarter to answer that lol

Yes you would need to do a bios update before using 3rd gen Ryzen CPUs. Check Asrock's website page for that motherboard model to find out what version you need.

Update to P1.80 if you are on an older BIOS than that, then update to the newest version.

Do not swap CPUs untill you have the newest BIOS installed.

 

Just did this on an ASRock X370 Killer SLI + R5 3600 setup myself.

I am actualy building a pc for my friend from new parts and i thougt that I can use my  r7 1700 so maybe the bios will be ok. First I will try the new cpu. And then I will put in my r7. To update it if the bios is old.

OH, first boot can take a bit, memory training on the 3000 series chips seems to take a bit.  After the board gets proper memory timings worked out it shouldnt be much of a problem on further cold boots.

 

On my setup DDR4 3200 works fine, but sometime resets to 2133 on a cold boot due to the training issues.  Just set it back to 3200 and reboot.  Its annoying, but not something that keeps the rig from working.

The CPU will not work if you dont have a newer BIOS already installed.  I tried.

I didnt look but probably need to update the chipset before updating the bios
