Hi, i bought 3600X CPU, but my currently motherboard is not compatibility with that CPU. I need to update BIOS to make that works. I have no display when turn on and no option to enter BIOS. Is there any option to get bios update without display or i have to get compatibility cpu and then update?

This is why I "love" motherboards with bios flashback function because you don't need to have a spare CPU around or be afraid when you buy a older motherboard if the bios is up-2-date.

I believe AMD still let people borrow a CPU to get their motherboard bios updated read more here: https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/faq/pa-100

You can correct me if I am wrong this why I purchased my MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC because of the bios flashback function but also for some other reasons.
