Not Up-to-date BIOS...6/11/2020 7:30:33 PM

Pros: RGB lights

Cons: Not Ryzen 3000 ready out of the box

Overall Review: Even though it states in the box "3000 Ready" and it finally became available.. BIOS has not been updated for Ryzen 5 3600 (Gen 3 CPUs). What a shame. You'll need either old CPU (Gen 1 or 2) from a friend, Local IT or from AMD support. I did the later. I'd hate to buy a gen 1 or 2 CPU just to update the BIOS when manufacturer could have done so when it became in stock again.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Reggie C, It's regrettable to hear you've encountered BIOS issues with your motherboard. Please note, CPUs released after motherboards will require a BIOS update to work together. If possible, try using an older CPU to access your system to update your BIOS, you can find the file with the link* provided. If not possible, you can contact AMD to request a "Short Term Processor Loan Boot Kit". You can reach me at Your case for reference is N200644639. Thank you for choosing ASUS!
