    I was gonna update my motherboard's bios so I can use a new processor in it but I'm a little confused on what exactly it is I need to download

    MSI's website seems to have two different downloads:

    They have the bios update page:

    But their CPU compatibility page also seems to offer a second, presumably different download:

    The CPU I was looking to install is a ryzen 9 3900x and it has a respective download on the compatibility page for that processor

    What confuses me is do I need both of those downloads or just the first one?

    I was gonna just try the first one and see how things go but I heard some scary things about bios updates so I wanted to make sure I'm doing things right

    You only need to download the latest bios update provided on the download page (in your thread, the first link)
