Compatibility Question!

I currently have a pre-set computer which has a B350M Bazooka for a motherboard with a Ryzen 5 1600 for the processor. I was wondering if that motherboard will be compatible with a Ryzen 7 3800x or a Ryzen 7 3700x? I'm looking to upgrade my processor soon and curious if this motherboard can handle it.

-Thank you

If you flash the BIOS, the B350 should be able to handle newer chips

MSI has a tool called M-Flash, which is easy to use (download the latest BIOS file onto a formatted USB, then enter the BIOS and load it)
