Hello, @jeggyjiggle 

May I ask which motherboard you are using, the ROG STRIX B350-F GAMING, the ROG STRIX B350-I GAMING, or the TUF B350M-PLUS GAMING?
ASUS offers three ways to update the BIOS of the motherboard: Update BIOS under the BIOS menu (EZ Flash), Windows system (EZ Update), or USB BIOS FlashBack.
We suggest verifying which BIOS update methods your motherboard supports and referring to the following FAQs for instructions on updating.
[Motherboard] How to update BIOS of the motherboard ?(Include different generation CPU)
[Motherboard/Desktop] ASUS EZ Flash 3 - Introduction
[Motherboard] EZ Update - Introduction
[Motherboard] How to use USB BIOS FlashBack™?
How to clear CMOS?
Meanwhile, updating BIOS may have the risk of not booting up.
Please back up your data first before updating the BIOS.

Thank you.
