  • I came because I am finally building a pc after playing console for almost 20 years. I had bits of knowledge of pc components and uses but I knew nothing of the systems or afther the building part. Like BIOS or UEFI or CMOS. I am waiting for the B550 boards to launch before building my pc. As to my knowledge they are the budget friendly option of future proofing my rig compared to the X 500 series boards. Ive learned so much of about pc building in the past few days and I thank you for the knowledge!

  • Not sure if I wanna get a B450 now or wait for the B550. Jayztwocentz scared me with possible initial MBD bugs at launch and that as an average joe like me, updating the BIOS may not be something I would wanna go thru. But now I'm confident that i could do this, lol. Thanks alot man

  • I’m getting many Blues screens (CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION), would this be a good reason to update my bios? PS: it is about 8 months outdated.

  • Thanks for this, I chose to update my bios because I bought a ryzen 1400 and ASUS a320 back in the first weeks of their launch so I’m pretty sure my bios is actually hindering my performance as the first bios editions for ryzen are supposed to have been pretty bad for ram and such so I’m hoping this will help me out

  • Can I update my bios without HDD or SSD? My storage is still on its way from the logistics. My current build: Gigabyte A320M S2H, Ryzen 5 3600, RX570, 16gb Ram, and still no storage like Hdd or Ssd. Please help. I would like to update my A320’s bios so it can support my Ryzen 5 3600.
