Hello

I am Updating my B450 Steel Legend from a Ryzen 5 2600 to a Ryzen 7 5800x. I will need to update the BIOS to 3.70. It Says that 3.70 is not compatible with my current 2600 CPU. What are the steps I need to take to complete my upgrade?

Just need some help with the proper order to make the change.

ASRock told me to upgrade the BIOS with the old cpu right before you update the motherboard with the new cpu.

I suspect it is just because the new BIOS hasn't been tested with the old cpu but it still works.
I did mine a day before but didn't use the computer before I got the new cpu.
I did check it booted to the bios screen with the old cpu.
