B350PRO4 1500x to 3600 CPU upgrade then flash back BIOS?
I posted this on the ASROCK forum but could not get much help there so hoping the community here could advise me.
I have the possibility to get a 3000series CPU relatively cheap so I am tempted to upgrade from my 1500X current one.
2 things I would like to clarify so looking for assistance.
I am currently on BIOS 5.40 on my B350 PRO4 MB and planning to upgrade to 5.80 which is the 1st one on ASROCK support homepage to capture 3000series CPU
Then I see these 2 comments there that I am not quite sure about
1) VGA drivers
I have a VEGA 64 GPU, do I need to install this VGA driver anyway, is that really a must?
* Please install "AMD all in 1 with VGA driver ver:18.50.16.01_WHQL" or a later version before updating to this BIOS.
** If you updated the BIOS before updating the AMD all in one driver, please refer to the Display recovery SOP to recover your system.
2) BIOS flash back to older version
Is there a way to flash back again to before 5.80 BIOS version if for example I decide to sell my MB and 1500X as 2nd hand combo? It says there on ASROCK support homepage that it can not be reverted but I found that MSI or ASUS BIOS downgrade can be done with some specific tool, is such tool not available for ASROCK MB as well?
*** If the current BIOS version is older than P5.40, please update BIOS to P5.40(PinnaclePI-AM4_126.96.36.199) before updating this version.
**** User will not able to flash previous BIOS once upgrading to this BIOS version.
Thanks so much
