Please see the first recommendation in my signature and keep it in mind for the future.

 

There are multiple ASRock motherboards with the model name "Phantom Gaming 4/ac." I'm going to guess you're referring to be the B550 chipset model. 

 

The nature of your question remains unclear. Are you wanting to replace your Ryzen 3600 with a 5000-series CPU? If so, the CPU support list on ASRock's product page clearly says that the 5000-series chips are supported from BIOS revision 1.20 and onwards.

Any B550 board will support a 3600 out of the box. Those boards came out a full year or more after the 3600 did. Your issue is not BIOS-related.
