I downloaded the w11 compatibilty checker tool. everything is fine except my cpu isn't supported. I want to upgrade the cpu to a i9 9900k. its a LGA1151 sockel. My mainboard is also LGA 1151 sockel (asus prime z270-a) but the mainboard isnt showing the i9 9900k as supported. Will this cpu still work with this mainboard? cuz sockel is the same...

Because it doesn’t support 8th or 9th gen cpus.

yes but its same socket? i have heard many times that if cpu and mainboard are same socket than its compatible. so i guess that information was false?

so it could work TECHNICALLY but asus is being stupid and just doesnt release a new bios to make the i9 9900k supported?

most probably yes
2021-09-27 13:36
i have no idea why it doesn't but i would advice against trying it incase you kill your cpu

because you need a z370 motherboard

z3 series for 9th gen, z4 for 10th, and so on (except that z4 works for 11th too).

z5 supports 11th gen at the moment, but no one knows what intel decides to do in the future.

i will just wait until 12th gen is out. I want to have w11 and the only reason i cant is because microsoft decided that the 6th gen isnt compatible for whatever reason :(

Could get 10700kf for 280. Motherboard for that cpu for 120. But than i might need new ram that works with that motherboard too. And new aio cooler... Too expensive just because Microsoft is stupid and doesn't allow support for 6th gen

u can try selling your current processor, mobo, ram, cooler first before spending money on new ones. less expenses then.

ok i dont need new ram. just checked this. i also dont need new aio cooler. also supported by new mainboard (prime b560-plus) so that would be a total of 400. selling the current mainboard and cpu for maybe like 100? doesn't sound too bad now.

just 100? should be more imo but idk

Yeah i checked prices for the 6700k.. goes for around 150-200 . Never imagined this high price for old used cpu. Didn't checked the Mainboard yet.

there u go. u're gonna have to pay like 200 tops. if u have checked the correct prices that is. if u want, u can confirm the specs with me in a PM before buying (to avoid buying something incompatible with your system).

I will wait tho until w11 is officially out. 2weeks ago i messaged Microsoft support and they said there Might be a few changes to the supported cpu models list. Hope they add my cpu. If not i will have no other options

yeah thats fine if they dont. i dont mind spending 400-500 euros max. upgrade is kind of overdue anyways (except gpu, even tho thats the worst part in my pc)

Intel chipsets ar only compatible with 2 gen of cpus. Yours supports 6th and 7th gen. If you want to upgrade the cpu, you need a mobo with Z370 chipset. If you want a upgrade friendly platform, buy amd, I had a ryzen 3 1200, now a ryzen 7 3700x, planning to buy an 5900 or 5950x in the future, with the same mobo.
2021-09-27 12:19
It wont, check Motherboard site (capable CPUs). Your peak is 7th Gen.

No it won't you need z370 or z390 motherboard. Why? Because Intel are greedy, that's why

just buy a board that is 100% compatible with your cpu instead of risking it lol

motherboard needs to be upgraded, Chipset is the same but no hardware support for the i9-9000 series sadly
2021-09-27 19:15
Can be done but not recommended, needs some haxors with the Z270 chipset and you should really know what you are doing Involves physically shorting couple of pins/contact patches on the CPU and flashing a modified BIOS for your motherboard or using 3rd party tool to modify it. Also before all this you should research how decent the voltage regulation and cooling of your motherboard is for 9900K However I understood that flashing new modified BIOS on ASUS boards is more difficult than some others, so probably involves even more steps in the case of your ASUS board

Short Answer: 300 series Intel boards minimum for 9900k Shortest Answer: NO
2021-09-27 19:40
I9 9900k needs some good voltage nad it gets hot pretty quick, you need a good mobo to handle that, I guess that even if you flash your old mobo, you can have some problems. You'll need nh-d15 or good water pump, unless you already have them, I wouldn't udpate if you don't want to spend more money.
