Question Is this CPU compatible with my Motherboard?

I currently revived a pre-built computer by moving it into a new case. I'm currently looking to upgrade the GPU to an RTX 2070, but my current CPU would be a little too weak to let the 2070 "unleash its full power". I'm wondering if an Intel Core i5-9600k would work with my current motherboard called a: Thimphu-K. The CPU requires an 1151 socket, so I assume this would work, but I'd like some assistance.

Here's a photo of the motherboard:

Could be a newer revision (or firmware). Still the Intel Core i5-9600k will NOT work with this motherboard.

You need a 300-series chipset motherboard and compatible BIOS to use the 9th gen CPUs.
