    Asus said that coffeelake would work in z170/270 boards but Intel willed it not to be.

    This is a repost of a diff article and has been discussed in the. Coffee lake thread.

    No Igp, broke pcie and only 4core chips, it doesn't really support it

    Watch there will be a pin mod sticker for 1151v1 to v2 and then everything works.

    they're reverse engineering a bios.

    of course not everything works yet.

    Yeah and I think we all highly doubt intel will allow the ME/bios change.

    Niiiice.

    And once again, fuck intel for doing this.

    Totally sticker-able now, did the 771 xeon to 775 socket mod for fun awhile back. This time no exacto knife socket surgery required.

    I'm betting PCIe lanes/slots are still limited. In my case, I have an Asrock Z170-ITX board, so I only have the single PCIe x16 slot and my m.2 slot. I wonder if this mod will have any impact on my m.2 slot.

    The lanes thing was with the previous method (or due to motherboard weirdness), no mention this time. The m2 is always from pch on 115x, shouldn't matter.

    Just ran a scan today from the Intel Driver and Support assistant...here's what it detected from my Z370 motherboard. I'm sure some people will believe that Intel isn't fucking the consumer by requiring a new motherboard, but they haven't convinced me.

    I will be happy if I can put 8400-8600 or even 8700 in my existing z270i at some point.

    Intel just swap some pins, so it's possible.

    Interesting. Might not toss my "old" z170 board after all.
