Cpu upgrade

I have an asus b550f and a ryzen 5 3600. I got a ryzen 5 5600x and need to know if i just swap them or need to update bios or something first? My mobo has latest bios version 2803, but i dont know how cpus work.

If you already have the latest BIOS, you're good to go.

 

The BIOS simply needs to be new enough to recognize the CPU and that's the case.

From a 3600 to a 5600X isn't an upgrade worth doing. Too much money for staying on the same amount of cores.

Consider a Ryzen 7 instead, like a 5700X or 5800X.

I am not allowed to have my PC specs in my signature.
