Flashing the BIOS on a B450 Pro

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So for my first time PC build, I'm building the $500 budget gaming PC from one of Linus's recent videos. (https://youtu.be/3dEfc9LL9bQ

 

I'm looking over the parts list in Parts Builder, and I noticed the one conflict is something that Linus mentioned in the video: "Some AMD B450 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Matisse CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions." 

 

If I'm using a Ryzen 3 3100, what specifically will I need to get in order to make this work?

Most b450 boards ship with the new bios. 

If it says "ryzen 3000 ready" on the box. Them it is. 

MSI's MAX boards do support the AGESA code for zen 2 out of the box. 

If they didn't ship with the new bios. Then just ask the vendor/ computer store to update it for you. 

But what board are you getting exactly?


Fun Fact: The Meshify c is the best case to ever exist.

so is that an option

As I said. It'll most likely support the AGESA code. If it didn't just ask a computer store to update it for you.
