Hello, Why doesn't the ROG STRIX B360-I GAMING support an Intel i7770K?.
I can't seem to find another cheap rgb, mini itx board out there apart from this one but pc part picker says not compatible.

intel says its not pin compatible even tho it has the same socket. another ridiculous move from intel.
you can get Z270 or Z170 with updated bios to get it work

So you are sure it is possible? What do you mean with Z270 or Z170? are those different motherboards or different BIOS updates for the motherboards?

Yea, another retarded move from Intel, that still confuses people to this day because they didn't bother to update the socket information.

6xxx/7xxx and 100/200 series motherboards are LGA 1151.
8xxx/9xxx and 300 series motherboards are LGA 1151 V2. That V2 is important, but it's completely absent from product pages.

Just checked it. Unfortunately It won't work... any alternative motherboards?
