All,

My current LGA115 Motherboard appears to be on the fritz meaning that I am in the market for a replacement. I currently have an ASUS Maximus Ranger VIII and an old i5-6600 Skylake Processor. In a perfect world, I would love to just buy another motherboard to replace my current one but I'm not sure if the newer boards will work with my current processor.

In short are current LGA1151 motherboards compatible with my old Skylake Processor? Or will I have to shell out a lot of money for an older compatible motherboard? If that is the case, I'll probably just upgrade both to save money and get something newer.

Thanks in advance.
