I purchased ryzen 5900x and plan to use it with my current x370 taichi MB, my system specs are:

CPU: ryzen 1700
Ram: (8 +8) GB Gskill
MB: asrock x370 taichi
MB Bios ver 4.60
Graphics card: Nvidia 2060 super
PSU: gigabyte 750w

What is the correct bios update procedure? shoud I:

A- Update bios directly from current version 4.60 to 7.00 then 7.10?
B- Update bios incrementally (4.60 to 4.70 to ....... to 7.10)?

And finally, after updating the bios will a (bios restore to defaults) suffice or should I do a (cmos reset)?

Thank you very much for your time!
Kind Regards

According to" rel="nofollow - , you should upgrade to 7.00 then to 7.10.

When I upgraded from a 1600X to a 5700X, I was already running 5.60 and followed those instruction by skipping 5.80 and 6.XX.

I'm not sure if a CMOS reset is strictly required when changing to a 5000 series CPU because memory compatibility has been the bigger issue.

As an FYI, the process I had to follow to get my 5700X to work after updating to 7.10 was:
1) Install a single DIMM
2) Boot to BIOS and enable XMP
3) Reboot and at set the 5700X to only use 6 cores in BIOS
4) Install the 2nd DIMM

Currently, I have to choose between 8 cores or 2 DIMMS. Not sure how a 5900X will be handled, but that is my experience with a 5700X on an x370 Taichi.

If the system is not used for about a week I need to repeat this process.

Thank you vaultdweller0013 very much for your input, and regarding the issues you are having I recommend trying a CMOS reset.

Thanks again!
