It's likely you need to update the bios as it's supported from bios version 3.3

I don't see bios flashback, so this board will require a 1000 or 2000 series CPU to flash it to a 3000 compatible bios.
You want to look for a b450 board with bios flashback to be able to use or an msi b450 max series board that ships with a compatible bios

X570/X470/X370/B450/B350/A320 Motherboards (AM4-socket for AMD Ryzen CPUs) Comparison - Google Sheets

As you can see in this document only MSI B450 boards have it (the max boards are basically pre-flashed boards). So it's one way for you, no asrock boards have it on this chipset.

in fact my first choice is

where it is not necessary to update the bios.

I bet on asrock that you find them at a lower price than msi.

are there any mb made in usa? no Chinese
