That sucks! I guess that's the price of using leading edge tech...ya gotta bleed a little.

 

Or send the MoBo back the amazon and get a 570 series board. After I get a price for the local shop I had build me a computer 20 years ago (they're still in business?!), I'll weigh my options.

My choice would be to have AMD to send me the kit. But I like messing with stuff. I appreciate that's it's not the most convenient option.

My old shop has moved but still has the circa 1960's IBM Main Frame on Display.. they'll do it for $25 but need to check to see if they have the Athlon 200GE processor as they moved just last month and are still sorting their inventory. Hopefully they have it otherwise the free BIOS Flash by Gigabyte is the way to go with this but that puts me out until about the 17th. Thank goodness I have a duplicate machine but it isn't optimized like my Emby Server was so we're having some stuttering on playback. If I can't get this done on Monday, I'm going to put that GTX 1060 6GB in it to boost the speed. This machine runs my downloading and also runs my BlueIris Security Cams so it gets a bit taxed at times, recording 4 video streams, processing nzb's and now streaming Emby LiveTV.. Good to have multiples; maybe I'll fire up the i3 NUC I have as it isn't doing anything at all right now..

I'm considering sending back the 450 and getting this 570. It has less I/O on the back panel but it has everything I really need.

Thoughts?

Man it is 2019, MB manufactures should really figure out how to include a microprocessor on MBs that allows the bios to be flashed via USB without a CPU

Higher-end gigabyte motherboards with Q flash Plus will do this.

That's a better board, and has Q-flash. The one you linked to isn't new, though. So be aware of that. But if you're willing to spend the money, I say go for it.
