Hello,

Trying to shop for a motherboard that is compatible with my new processor, i7-11700k out of the box. I'm finding a lot of motherboards but they're all requiring a BIOS upgrade (according to pc part picker) to support my cpu. Obiously I can't afford to buy a second CPU that's of an earlier generation to enable me to upgrade the bios so I was just hoping anyone would be able to offer me some help, either a motherboard that will innately support 11th Gen intel or a motherboard that can be upgraded somehow without a CPU. Thanks a lot for reading this folks.

Z590 boards should be fully compatible with that CPU. Some boards, like those from MSI, can be upgraded without a CPU, too. Look for flash BIOS in the board description.
