    I am arranging for a desktop to be built using a Ryzen 5 3600 as the CPU and the stable release of
    Debian 10 as the operating system.

    My initial selection for the motherboard is an MSI X570-A PRO.

    I see that the AMD AGESA ComboAm4PI 1.0.0.5 BIOS has been recently installed on this board but
    as the BETA version.

    I am concerned that the BETA version is used rather than the official 1.0.0.5 release and fear it may cause
    instabilities, especially as I will use a Linux OS.

    I notice that MSI B450 boards, such as the TOMAHAWK MAX, have been supplied with the official
    1.0.0.5 release.

    Would it be better for me to use the TOMAHAWK MAX rather than the X570-A PRO ?

    MSI betas are usually pretty solid. Shouldn’t be a problem.

    Btw the MSI x570-A PRO latest BIOS 7C37vH84(Beta version) when released some time ago the changelog showed the ComboAm4PI 1.0.0.5 update but a few weeks later the changelog was modified and it doesn't show the AGESA 1.0.0.5 update anymore, its really strange

    Now only Shows

    Description
    - Fixed HDMI audio lost issue when use AMD RX570 vga card.
    - Improved USB sound card compatibility.

    Tbh my computer runs fine with the asus board but if i'm going to buy new components any time i will avoid asus as their support is really crap especially compared to other manufacturers..
