I'm new to PC building and was hoping I could get some help/advice here?

Essentially I have purchased most of my PC parts and the only thing that's left really is the Motherboard, I purchased a Ryzen 5000 CPU (5800X to be exact) and I have been looking at the MSI X570 Tomahawk which I have heard good things about in terms of functionality/performance and the fact that its a cool running MB.

The issue/concern I have is whether this MB supports Ryzen 5000 series CPU's out the box? I have asked a few stores that sell this particular MB and have had conflicting answers...

Im very new to PC building and im a little concerned with trying to run the bios update myself in case things go wrong and I end up frying the board and anything its connected to. So does the X570 Tomahawk now support the 5800x out the box? Are there any other MB's that do? Willing to go a bit higher end if they do

it depends on when the motherboard is being manufactured!!!
check here and compare your manufacture date and BIOS version and you should know
But I havent bought the Motherboard yet so wont know the Manufacturer date, based on the thread you shared I should ask the sellers for a board that has a manufacture date of 2020 as that should support the CPU out the box?

No ask for one made in 2021 or December 2020

Most motherboards right now do not, but it doesn't matter especially for the X570 Tomahawk because the Tomahawk has BIOS Flashback. You can Flash and update the BIOS outside of the tower with nothing installed to the motherboard All you need is a USB thumb drive.
