Will this work with a Ryzen 5 2600 with a bios update? Thanks in advance.


Yep it will however will almost definitely need a first gen ryzen in order to update the bios (although I dont know if AMD are doing their free bios upgrade kits still?)

Decent price for something that is meant for lower end CPUs from AMD

Thank you. I’ll email their support team and see if they still do.

So I asked them before and they charge for it unless you buy the processor to go with it. Think it was a £10 charge. I decided to go with Novatech who did it for free
Just looking to build my first PC- and a b350 is one of the boards I’m looking at to go with a Ryzen 5 2600x and. 1060 GPU. Would the board be a good choice??

AMD bootkit is free, just a bit of a hassle & wait.

I'm not sure as to the purpose of these low spec b350 boards; while the chipset has the capability to overclock, their VRMs most certainly do not.

Can't argue with the price though, you might even get a reasonable overclock if you're able to fit an aftermarket heatsink to the VRM.

Though a better spec 'open box' board from Amazon warehouse is probably a better choice.

Hmm can you allow more money in budget for mobo? PM me as I build systems all the time so can help parts list for you

One of the things you should keep in mind is that you'll need a compatible CPU in order to update the BIOS to the latest (or at least F22) so the 2600x will work with it - CPU support list with corresponding BIOS versions here: gigabyte.com/Mot…-1x

Borrow a compatible CPU from Amazon warehouse
Isn't the ''AMD B450'' imminent?, i believe/know it is. Might be worth waiting.....or not.

I dont think neccesarily worth waiting as will have same compatibility and not really any new features plus b350 is a lot cheaper

Yeah is see that and if i were building a budget Rig, But i at least like to know.
Great price for this board, more chassis fan headers would be nice - even one more for a front and back but splitters are only a couple of quid.
Not a bad deal but I wouldn't trust that VRM with anything more that a quad core - 65w cpu / might be ok for a 1600 (non X)

will this run pac-man C........
Good price

Well, further to my reply to your post at: hotukdeals.com/com…957

I asked CCL about the present BIOS version, & this is what they replied. In short, if you buy both Mb+CPU from them, they'll update the BIOS for free on request....

"We do not keeps record of the BIOS version of stock that comes in. Best bet is to call our sales team straight after you place your order on 01274 471201 to arrange for a BIOS update before shipment. If you are buying the motherboard on its own, the BIOS update will be a charge of £10. If you are buying the CPU with the motherboard from us, the BIOS update will be free."

Yes, works out of the box if it was made after may

Agree about the fan headers. Probably the only down side for me at this price point. I bought this, a 2400g and 8gb Corsair memory to replace my C2D e7200 with 4gb ddr2 and discrete basic gpu which was running Windows 10 (pretty stable). But my new setup is a millions miles quicker and stable as a rock. Its used for fairly basic tasks so it's not for gaming but for a quick and easy upgrade, I wish I'd done this ages ago.

What's the issue about the bios update? I updated mine as soon as I got it to ver 23d and it was a doddle.

It has been out over a week now. I bought one for son's R5 2400G build.

VRM?


Voltage Regulator Module ... It's provides power to the CPU ... I think. My B450 board has a big heat sink on it.

Cheers, will make sure my case stays well ventilated to stop cooking my CPU due to overheating the VRM.

The new i9 MacBook Pro debacle was interesting as it relates to the VRM.
These should really be updated from the factory or atleast be able to update with just a USB plugged in, no cpu required.
