Calling anyone that has built with this motherboard the past couple of weeks with a 5000x series chip.

Trying to find out if it posted or it needed another older cpu to get in and update the bios ?

Not having bios flashback is a pain...

Thanks

If you're building gaming PC would suggest looking elsewhere than Asus X570 boards.

Besides lack of BIOS Flashback in such price board, Asus has X570 chipset cooler with design straight from rear end of marketing:
Actual heatsink under plastic marketing excrements is really small.
And hence to do its job relies on constant airflow from fan, constricted by more marketing BS.
With whole crud in the worst place directly under graphics card to be "cooled" by air preheated by it.​
That's not recipe for good chipset cooling in gaming sessions with high end GPUs especially if room heats up.
And should be easy to guess what happens if/when that critical for cooling fan wears out.

Gigabyte and MSI have properly designed chipset coolers with good size heatsink farther from heat of GPU and are designed to work primarily passively.
Though ironically for Gigabyte the lowest Aorus Elite has the best chipset cooler.
With higher up models with more marketing involved moving cooler first closer to GPU in Aorus Pro and then constricting fan in Aorus Ultra.

While for MSI X570 Tomahawk is the only reasonably priced board with good for the price CPU VRM with others using copypast from £100 level B450 boards.

Simply never buy brand/marketing image.
They're all after to screw you in every chance you give and you need to take hard look on particular products in question.
