The B550AM Gaming motherboard is a special release for OEMs like CyberPowerPC to use in pre-built systems. It is manufactured by ASRock and you'll find info here

I got my new Desktop in with a CD to install stuff for the Motherboard. Yet I ordered the PC without a DVD slot. So how can I get my drives updated without a disk?

You have two choices.  Either search for the files you need on the web, or buy an external DVD.

 you can always go to the manufacturer's website and download bios updates and driver that you need.

I've been having problems with NVMe on this motherboard since I bought it. It would be fine for up to a day, and then simply fail. Since the computer couldn't write logs, it was difficult tracking down the reason. In Linux, it appeared very similar to this:" rel="nofollow -

It has only been a couple of days, but it appears that the 1.40 motherboard update has completely fixed the issue! It was also relatively easy to install.

So while it's a bit unfortunate that these "special release" motherboards don't get full support from the original manufacturer, thank you CyberPower team for pushing out fixes as they are available. Hug

Just did this.  Save the file to your desk top (you have to extract the file) then save it onto a memory stick.  Restart your system and press F2 to enter the boot up system.  The third/fourth tab over (advanced??) has an option to "Flash".  The icon is of a smart stick that say bios on it.  Click it, as long as your memory stick is still plugged into the usb port it should show you the file, then click ok and let it do its thing.  Once finished click the button on the screen and the system will reboot.  Remove the memory stick from the usb port.

Is there a specific USB port required to get the instant flash to work like there is on other mother boards? Just asking since it keeps telling me there is an issue detecting the bios update from my usb(formatted properly).

Anyone know how to install asrock rgb polychrome software? If I follow manual and install App/Store it doesn't recognize any updates.

Amazon has a good deal at just less than 5 dollars.  Sorry, didn't copy the link...

I am a little unhappy with my purchase of my PC with this MB.   The mb claims to support 7.1 stereo on the board yet only has one speaker jack!  The only way I could get my gaming speaker system to work was to purchase an additional sound card.  Thanks for charging me $1,300.00 just so I can shell out another $100.00!

I am using the B550AM gaming MB, with the 4600BST cyberpower package bought at Best Buy and I was wondering if there's a way to restore the computer back to factory default settings from when I purchased it?  Is there an installer or some sort of repository somewhere that shows all the applications that came with the computer and what not?  I have seen the drivers links attached to this post, but i haven't seen anything about restoring the computer back to factory and all the applications that came with the computer as well.  Thanks for your time.

I'm also curious if there's any new bios update after 1.40, as on the ASRock website they seem to be using 1.60 for various B550 boards.  I still see the latest as 1.40 on the link you have posted on this thread.  How often is that folder updated with the latest BIOS information ?  Just wanted to see if there was an update.  Thanks!

Does this motherboard support the new ryzen 5000 series CPUs. If so how can you share bios update please.
