    Upgrading Motherboard w/ different chipset

    hippoCostco

      I currently have an i7-6700 processor.  My current motherboard is NOT using the Z270 chipset.

       

      According to the product specs (link), the CPU is compatible with the Z270 chipset.

       

      Does this mean I that a Z270 motherboard will be compatible with my CPU, even if it isn't currently running on a Z270 motherboard?

       

      Thanks!
