I just upgraded to a Ryzen 5 1600 and MSI X370 gaming pro carbon. Everything is working fine except I can't get the ram (corsair vengeance lpx) up to 3000MHz without updating the bios. I followed the video from gamersnexus on how to use mflash and downloaded the bios directly from the msi page for my mobo but when I select the file in mflash it pops up an error that it is not an msi bios. I'm very confused because it's the file directly from msi's webpage for my motherboard. Any suggestions?

Did you get bios from www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/X370-GAM...ARBON.html#down-bios?
Did you look at -
"How to flash the BIOS ( SOP Download)
Youtube: MSIĀ® HOW-TO use M-FLASH for BIOS
We suggest using Chrome, Firefox 3.0 or IE 9.0 above browsers to download BIOS, Drivers, etc.
System will take longer time to boot up after updating MB bios for the first time "

That's exactly where I downloaded the bios from (the one on the very top, latest release date). When I select mflash in the bios, it reboots into mflash and then I can select the folder with the bios in it and then I run into my issue.

Did you look at the video?

Have you got single or double bios?

What browser are you using?

I've watched the video, single bios, chrome. I can download the file and get into mflash, it's just that mflash says that the file is not an msi bios, which it should be given that I downloaded it from msi

What version are you on right now?
If you are on v12 or older, I would try to update to v13, v14, then v15. Maybe that helps.

TBH, I don't think there is much we can help you with, since you've clearly got it from the right source and followed the instructions.

Try to contact MSI directly, they should be able to help you - or at least confirm the issue, so you could RMA it.

Sounds like you should contact MSI

Your problem doesn't seem to come up in MSI forums - forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=283281.0
