First time building a PC (I've used mac my whole life) so Im new to this but I have a intel core i5 6400. It's a Lga 1151 and I believe a 6th gen. I've found a motherboard I want, I believe its compatible just want a second opinion, this is the mobo.. https://www.newegg.com/p/1JW-001M-006Y6
The 100 and 200 series motherboards are compatible with the 6th gen CPUs. If you are ever unsure, the manufacturer's website lists all compatible CPUs -- https://us.msi.com/Motherboard/support/Z170A-GAMING-M7#support-cpu
