A:AnswerRestocks are pretty random, BestBuy tends to throw up their items between 10AM and 2pm CST from my experience. I was able to purchase a couple RTX 3080's as well as this 5600x from Bestbuy without too much of a hassle.
A:AnswerMobo makers are suppose to offer a new BIOS starting in Jan. '21 so that the earlier 400 series mobos can run the Ryzen 5000 series CPUs. You should contact your mobo maker to confirm a BIOS is on the way.
A:AnswerMost 500 series motherboards have to have a bios update, but most of them have Q flash capability which make it easier (ive done this by just downloading the bios update from motherboard manufacturer and putting it on a thumb drive). Some motherboards even have a Q flash button on the board itself which is very convenient. To be safe though, check in your boards manual, there will almost certainly be instructions on how to update the bios.
