ASRock mob and TR4 II getting flagged as incompatible

I don't think this is correct, but I'm trying to build a TR4 II system, and PCPartPicker tells me there's a compatibility issue. I've flagged this as an issue, because as far as I know the ASRock x399 is compatible with Threadreaper 4 Gen2 CPU with a BIOS update.

Is anyone having problems with this motherboard and cpu combo? Am I mistaken and this hardware configuration is incompatible? Thanks,

Out of box they are incompatible and they need a BIOS update.

Sure, but the warning can be also misleading. It should have an incompatible message with a note to check with manufacturer for possible BIOS update that makes it compatible, because TR4 II is a drop-in upgrade and all motherboards that were released for the Gen1 will have this message, when they're actually compatible.

Looks to be a specific issue with the motherboard. I will pass it along to the team to take a look.

this is relating to the current mobo. if the mobo is old. do i need to go thru each bios update to current one. or no. their site is misleading a bit on this.
