yesterday i ordered a ryzen 2600x CPU, MSI Tomahawk B350 motherboard and some 2x4gb sticks of kingston hyperx fury RAM...today i found out that you need some kind of a 2000 series mobo for the 2nd gen. amd CPUs..
So my question is if i put my 2600x in this mobo will it boot? to the point where i can install windows 10 and do a bios update from there?
Or do i need an older CPU of the first zen series like a 1600 to run the system so that i can do a BIOS update for the 2nd series?
P.S dont worry about the other components of my build.. i have them all already.. im just waiting for this package of the mobo, cpu and ram i ordered..
You may get a board which already has support for the Ryzen 2000 series. If it's not, then AMD Again Offers UEFI Update Boot Kits for Ryzen 2nd Gen CPUs Also, you -never- update the BIOS through Windows.
