  1. You need to update the bios, but you need your exact motherboard model to do so
  2. Pull up your motherboard on the product page on MSI then click support and downloads. Grab the latest bios version and put it on a USB stick. Boot into BIOS and select the USB stick file for Flash. Be very careful when flashing..

    * I wouldn't run a 2700X on a B350 to begin with. It's going to be stressed.....
  3. You'll most likely need to update the motherboard BIOS with the old CPU in place.

    Go to MSI website and get page for your motherboard. Then go to support link, and look for 'compatibility'. Then see version of BIOS required for the 2700x in the CPU list (e.g. 7A34v10.zip).

    Update BIOS, swap out CPU. Also be sure that your PSU and power connections are up to the 2700x.
  4. There's no reason a b350 board won't work with e 2700x some b350s have better power delivery than some x370s/x470s it's about quality not chipset

    There's plenty of evidence that the 2700X cannot sustain it's full potential on a B350. It'll require more power and will apply some stress on a B350. None the less the system will still work fine, I agree that quality matters.

    You realize that VRMs and chipset are two completely independent aspects of the motherboard? How exactly is the CPU "stressing" the chipset? As said above, there are B350/450 boards out there that have better power delivery than some X370/470 boards.

    Just curious though, what sort of evidence have you seen, and could you provide an example?
  7. The answer is none. I don't doubt a $70 b350 board will have those problems so will a $90 x370

    As mentioned the vrm amount and quality have nothing to do with chipset

    X370 and X470 are more expensive and made to overclock for a reason. I'm just saying that I would't recommend pairing the 2700X on that B350 motherboard. Just my thoughts...
  9. They're both made to overclock... X470 is made for sli, more USB ports and other stuff. Literally nothing in the chipset has anything to do with it's power delivery system
  10. X470 and X370 boards tend to have a better power phase. If I installed a 2700X on a X470 VS B350 I would see the X470 system would have the CPU running at higher frequencies .
  11. That's not correct at all. There are high quality b350 boards and poor x470 boards.
  12. It's actually true. Better power phases, better overclocking and more features. I'm not going to argue. Hope you get the BIOS figured out Shout58!
