Or order the mobo and CPU from CCL, they'll update it for you.
Already ordered & paid for, from elsewhere. Deleted previous message as I'm sure I have the 'bits' to effect a BIOS change prior to functional build being completed.

So far, so good...
Just noticed the extra ATX EPS socket for the CPU - lucky that OCZ supplied 2 cables for such purposes all those years ago when I bought my 750w unit.
At some point in the future; Part the 3rd - custom water-cooling loop (not because I 'need to' either)
I may be looking to sell my old watercooling parts soon, so keep an eye on the marketplace
I would... if I hadn't perma-banned myself from there for lacking the self-control to NOT take threads off-topic -- and by perma-banned, I mean asked for my access to the sub-forum to be removed.
Ack I threw a load away when I left my flat. I would have given it away just didn't have time. Full set of fittings in white (bits power) two rads etc. In fact no, make that three rads.
I just don't have the space now man. Shame, but, it has stopped me from serial fiddling (fnarr).
Having failed to boot my X470 'board/Ryzen 5 3600 combo. - BIOS seems to be wrong for Zen 2 - it occurred to me that a 'board/CPU/RAM set-up may require a drive of some sort to even get to a BIOS screen - did I n00b it not having a drive connected...?
Shouldn't do, just CPU, and RAM, some don't even need that! Any error codes?
Some MSI boards with flashback only need a psu afaik.
Nah; just flat failed to boot - was half expecting it, anyway as I didn't get the 'board & CPU from the same place, let alone check what BIOS version the 'board had prior to ordering it.
Had exactly those...
That's the 'Flash Harry' bit where a button is assigned to a select USB port & you just press the button & wait...
Not the one I have
Yeah not sure why some do and some don't.
Availability of tech. at design stage of/target market for the 'board in question...?
... targeting higher spenders.
Part the third will probably have to factor in a new case... having tried to make the best of (what turned out to be) a bad job, when I got a Liquid Freezer 240, I'm not entirely sure a rad. of any description will fit into my Antec P280.
... but that's a 'problem for another year'.
Its the problem with golden oldies, they lack little details like offsetting the fan mounts to fit rads...
How ambitious would it be to use this - in a Define C - as a start for a first shot at a combined CPU/GPU loop...?
Can this be done cheaper than £380...?
Yes, because I'm about to list more or less a full loop on the marketplace
If memory serves the Define C should be fairly straight forward Looking at photos the only pain will be pump placement.
