I was putting together a gaming rig for my friend and was installing a 5600X onto an ASUS B550-F WiFi motherboard, which I found didn't have an updated BIOS with support for 5000 series CPUs. I did have a 3000 series I could've flashed with, but I remembered this board has a feature where you can flash without even a CPU in the socket. Pretty amazing and handy thing, so I tried it out and it worked as advertised. Quite nervous watching the green light blink for sure.
