    RYZEN upgrade, HELP please.

    I have an urgent question... doing upgrade today, in like an hour. Currently, my Son has the ASUS ROG Strix B450-F GAMING ATX AM4 Motherboard with an AMD Ryzen 7 1700X 3.4 GHz 8-Core Processor in his everyday gaming rig.He recently bought an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12-core, 24-Thread Unlocked Desktop Processor with Wraith Prism... with winnings he earned in a competitive Fortnite tournament.TODAY I have to install the new CPU into his rig.Is the new CPU compatible with his current mobo... is it just a remove/replace installation?Do the BIOS in the mobo need to be updated/changed before install?Is there anything I need to be aware of that may ruin his rig or make it unusable?Thanks.

    Make sure you flash latest BIOS or at least 2301 or later is already installed

    BIOS updated. CPU installed and posted/booted up.
    FPS in game (Fortnite) increased dramatically.
    Gained 100+ FPS in some scenarios.
