So I built a PC and bought an open box motherboard from micro center, an Asus ROG STRIX B450-F Gaming motherboard and a Ryzen 5 3600X (New). I need to flash the bios so I can use my cpu with it. Will micro center flash my bios for free?

    Hello @ferret63! Welcome to the Community. 

    Does the box for the motherboard have a label on the outside that says Ryzen 3000 desktop ready? If so, you won't need to flash the BIOS. If it doesn't, BIOS flashing has a labor charge of $29.99. Waiving that fee would be up to the discretion of the technicians at your local store. You're always welcome to ask them about it, but I would expect the labor charge.
