    Hi, I am wondering if the ASUS EX-B150M-V3 motherboard can be compatible with Intel Core i5-9400F CPU or if it can work with some BIOS upgrade etc. If anyone can help confirm that would be amazing. Thank you!

    No. You need something with the 3xx chipset to run an 8xxx/9xxx CPU.

    The B150 chipset will be compatible with the 6xxx/7xxx series CPU.

    This is your answer. Although, even if you're looking for a 7xxx chip, make sure the bios is updated.
