Gigabyte ab350 gaming and third gen ryzen

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

I have the Gigabyte ab350 gaming.

Are second and third gen ryzen cpu’s compatible with this board without a bios update? If it requires an update, is it possible to do it without having a compatible cpu?

That depends on the manufacturing date. When did you purchase this motherboard?

 

if you just recently bought this motherboard new, there should be a badge on the box that tells you what it's compatible with. If there is no orange or grey badge, it is only compatible with first gen ryzen.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

unfortunately this motherboard probably only supports first generation CPUs. Also, this motherboard does not have a way to flash the BIOS without a compatible CPU. 

 

Do you happen to have a friend with a Ryzen CPU?

Unfortunately, most B350 motherboard only support up to 2nd Gen Ryzen. There are quite some B350 motherboard support Ryzen Gen 3 processor (Matisse and Picasso) but requires a BIOS update.

 

Good news is the motherboard supports Gen 3 Ryzen processors. You need to update the BIOS, however.

Unfortunately, you really need to go through a few BIOS update before you reached the BIOS that can support your processor.

Sorry for my late reply. I heard there is a ryzen bootkit service, but it does not mention that it works with b350 boards, is it possible to do this in this situation?

sadly AMD ended the boot kit service for first gen boards when it was relevant for second gen.
