Is the Ryzen 5 3600 Compatible With the MSI B450M Gaming Pro Carbon AC Motherboard?

Hey, 

 

I'm thinking about building a PC with the Ryzen 5 3600 and the MSI B450M Gaming Pro Carbon AC motherboard. Having done some research, I'm slightly confused whether these two parts are compatible because this will be my first build and I don't know much about the BIOS or anything like that. I'd appreciate some help!

Yes, it will. However if you get a board with an older BIOS it may not recognize the CPU out of the box, in that case you'll have to use the BIOS Flashback feature to flash the latest using a USB stick.

Thanks! How will I know whether my board has an older or newer BIOS?

If its brand new, its likely fine. I just bought an MSI B450I Gaming Plus AC and it worked with a 3900X out of the box.
