now i know it sounds crazy but im just wondering if it is possible. the sockets would work the only thing is that i hear it downclocks for the power supply to work. idk im just wondering since the tdp is 65w and if someone could get a 6700 non k working in there then theoretically everything should work and you can get extra cores

changed some things like what

Nothing changed. It's an artificial limitation enforced by Intel (or at least Asus claims it is). If Intel weren't being pricks about it, then coffeelake would work on old boards (with a bios update).

Doesn't really change anything though, Intel say no, so you can't make the swap and need a new board.

Hm.. Was under the impression it was a hardware change. However, you're right. It's Intel's bullshit.. Is it really surprising though?

    It's Just That I Have Been Having a Hard Time Ever Since That I Saw Awful Hate Images of Ami Onuki, Sky (Friday Night Funkin'), Rabbids and Teen Titans Go. I Just Wish that People Would Change and Start Making Fan Art of Ami Onuki, Sky, Rabbids and Teen Titans Go Instead of Just Making Hate Art out of Them for a Change.

    i'm sure there's fan art too, but what does it matter? if people hate them, that's their opinion and they're free to have it, that doesn't affect you at all
