Hi,
I want to replace my 2600X on a B450M Pro 4 with a 5800X. My current BIOS version is 1.6 so I need to upgrade to at least 4.6. Given the warnings on the BIOS download page ("ASRock do NOT recommend updating this BIOS if you are going to use Pinnacle, Raven or Summit Ridge CPU on your system."), I'm wondering what is the best procedure:
- Is it still safe to upgrade with my Pinnacle Ridge CPU in the system?
- If I'm upgrading anyway, does it make sense to upgrade to the latest version 5.10 with newer AMD AGESA ComboAM4v2 right away?

Thanks!

not recommended if you are going to USE your 2600x .. because the BIOS won't do anything for you. Doesn't say "will not work with" ..

It's a bit of a scare tactic from ASRock so the average Joe doesn't go willy nilly and update their BIOS's when nothing is wrong/don't need to. But your 2600x will run just fine on the latest BIOS until you get your 5800x in there.
