The motherboard manual will be more clear than I ever will :P. All you need is to download the BIOS file and extract them from their compressed form in Windows. Then you get into the BIOS, select the update BIOS option, locate the extracted BIOS file, and the motherboard will update the BIOS itself.

I currently have a 1600x base clock

16gb 2x8 3000mhz Corsair RGB ram

1060 3GB gigabyte mini 

ASUS x370 pro prime 

 

At xmas im looking to upgrade should I upgrade CPU to 2700x ? will this work with my current mobo or should I upgrade my GPU ?

Thanks

Why are you looking to upgrade? If its for more fps, then just the graphics card. The 1600 is a strong chip.

 

If you're looking for more workstation tasks or streaming then yeah it'll work fine

The motherboard would likely need a BIOS update to make it compatible with the 2700X.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

The graphic card to 1070ti, 1080 or one of the Vega cards?

worth it. Streaming can be done with the hardware encoder on the GPU as well.
