1)Download the BIOS file, and extract the zip file onto a FAT32 formatted flash drive
2)Restart PC, go into BIOS and load optimized defaults and reboot again after saving changes
3)Start Asus EZ Flash either from the Tools section in the BIOS or it's one of the F hotkeys (don't know off the top of my head)
4)Welcome to the club. Enjoy an awesome motherboard with an epic VRM ready to go for the upcoming Zen 2 12/16 core CPUs

Just an FYI; while the board will support a 3900x, the latest BIOS is having all sorts of issues with it. It is only stable up to the 3700x/3800x chips atm. So just a thought before you jump into the 3900x and be disappointed because something isn't stable or clocking right.

(Only because I have the same board and will be upgrading to a 3900x eventually, but read many posts recently about the issues with it. So will be holding off until BIOS is fixed).

Thanks for you message.

Yes, I read the same, but asus is working on it.
I ordered from Miami and I am shipping it to Argentina. I think I will get it in two weeks. So I hope its enough time to make a good bios for asus
