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?

    I mean what would you really need that fast for tho, 500mb streams 4k fine. 1gb should be fine for 8k eventually. That's what I just switched to Spermrum.

    I was funny to have both networks running lol
