Solved Are there any known incompatiibilities between AMD Ryzen 7..

February 9, 2019 at 13:47:39
Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, 6 Gb DDR2 dual channel
I am going to purchase together an AMD Ryzen 7 1800X processor and an ASUS Prime X370-Pro AM4 AMD X370 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI Motherboard. I heard some rumors about BIOS issues between these 2.
What is the real truth. My prices for above components are U$180 and U$113 respectively.

What could you tell me about the compatibility or incompatibility of them together?

Thank you

I notice you are running Windows 7. I don't think Windows 7 is compatible with the Ryzen processor series. The machine I am on now is running a Ryzen CPU. I originally thought I would install Windows 7. I found it balked. Researched and found a work around and installed Windows 7 64 bit. Then I found out Microsoft will not allow you to perform Windows updates with that configuration. My processor and board are 3.20 gigahertz AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Six-Core in a Gigabyte AB350-Gaming motherboard.

The board has been around for a while & has had numerous (at least 24) BIOS revisions over the past couple of years. As long as your board has BIOS version 0404 or newer, you should have no problem with the 1800X. Once you get it going, update to BIOS version 4207.

Thank you kindly.
So Asus on their website allows you to pick and choose which version to download and, not necessarily just the most current one?

The most recent BIOS is shown but if you click "See All Downloads", you'll see all the past updates. The newest BIOS update will contain all fixes from the prior updates + the additional fixes in the latest.
