Hi,
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.
