I switched from a i5-7600k to a i7-9700k. I put the 9700k in and cleared cmos, but the pc just bricked. I put the i5-7600k and clear the cmos and it starts up like nothings happened.

Ideas?

Edit: my motherboard is a asus z270h

Z270 only supports 6th and 7th gen prosessors. You could get 8th and 9th gen working but motherboard would need to be modified. :confused_old:
