Hi i was looking to get a PC upgrade, I have an MSI B150M Bazooka motherboard and just wanted to confirm it could support a I7 9700k. As the motherboard supports the same chipset which is LGA1151. Does this mean they would both work fine together, as right now i only have an I5 6500k which can be hard even with just discord and a game open, thank you so much to any one that takes there time out of there day to read this.

No.
i7 9700k is working only on socket 1151v2 or 300 series chipset from Intel... I would recommend getting a Z390 motherboard for that CPU to fully benefit

There are dummy pins in 100/200 series sockets that are active on 300 series boards for power, thats why 8/9th gen wont work despite same socket.

Your upgrade path could be an 6700/6700k or with bios update, an 7700/7700k. Only if for a good price of $150 or below. Around $300US can get a new Ryzen build, 3600+mobo.

You can always check the manufacturer supplied CPU Support List to verify if a processor is supported on your motherboard. As above, unfortunately, the 8th and 9th generation processors are not supported.
