I currently have an i5-9400f cpu and im currently looking to upgrade. my motherboard is a B360m chipset. would a i7-9700k work with it? thanks
 
Update your bios to the latest version, just as best practice. Then install the 9700k and it should work.

Keep in mind, you will need to buy a better cooler. The 9700k has no included cooler and the 9400fs cooler will not cut it.

If it's already working with a 9x00 series CPU, probably; I'd check with the specific mainboard manufacturer's website, referncing their 'supported CPU list' to be sure, just in case there were any VRM/wattage concerns with a specific mainboard sample....
