    Hey what's up everyone I'm pretty much new to the computer game. I am about to finish my first build I have someone pretty good experience with Intel so I decided to get some experience on AMD. I have the crosshair hero 6 and it's an x370 board. Having some trouble selecting Ryzen 5 compat. RAM. Any suggestions? Much appreciated thank you. Also it is going straight to the BIOS saying something about the BIOS on this particular board needs to be updated. It seems simple enough but I don't think I'm doing the flash update correctly. So if anybody has dummy guide instructions for me I appreciate that too. Cheers...

    Running the exact same board and I use this ram;
    I have used that exact ram in a number of ryzen builds; works great.

    Next before attempting to update the bios STOP. Read your manual and be sure you fully understand the flashing procedure. The ONLY way I ever update a bios on an asus board is by using EZFlash which is a utility built into the bios itself. Using a windows based program to update a bios is just asking for a problem.
    That board has a bios flashback option which will allow you to flash a bios without even having a processor installed however this procedure is only for very experienced users and is used when a bios becomes corrupted or when you have an unsupported processor.
