I have recently built my first PC and I bought a Ryzen 5 2600X with a ASUS PRIME B350-PLUS motherboard.

After trying to make the system post, I have checked every component of my PC with a friend who has a test rig. None of the components appear to be faulty.


After reading a tech website on AMD offering UEFI update boot kits to 2nd Gen Ryzen Chips, I have wondered if this might be the reason on why my PC won't post.

To add, my motherboard is a year old model which released at the same time as the first gen Ryzen CPU's.


If this the case would it be better to go through the hassle of AMD sending me an UEFI update boot kit or to buy a X470 motherboard which are already compatible with the second gen Ryzen CPU's on PCPP.
