Motherboard not reading CPU

    I had a rig that I decided to upgrade and when I did it, the motherboard did not read the new CPU.

    The old specs are:

    Ryzen 5 1500x
    GTX 1050ti
    B350m Gaming Pro
    450v PSU
    16GB 2400 ram
    Stock CPU Cooler

    And I bought a new:
    Ryzen 5 3600
    RX 580
    650v PSU

    When I built it and the CPU redlight came up on the motherboard I checked all the connections and the CPU for bent pins. I also swapped CPUs, tried the old PSU and removed the GPU. Nothing seems to work.

    Is my motherboard busted or am I missing something?

    Hello, B350 motherboards will need a BIOS update to accomodate the newer Ryzen 3000 series processors.
