Mobo: MSI Arsenal gaming z270 ddr4
Ram: Corsair vengeance 16gb

Howdy. I just tried to install my new i9-9900k, but when trying to boot up, the Mobo light would just blink and turn off again. So I think "okay, maybe I Removed up somewhere in there when I was swapping cpu's." But the only thing I removed was the heatsink and the cpu itself. I did not unplug any internal wires or rearrange anything. So I put the old cpu back in, and everything booted completely normal, no message even stating a hardware change. I checked the pins on the i9 and they don't seem to be broken. My only guess is Mobo incompatibility?
