    It really sucks that our chipset may only support one generation of intel CPUs. I know the Z270 can be modded to fit a 8700k (Mr.Fox did this correct?) but it would be nice to have drop in capability.

    I would really like to see some "Diversity" in the desktop-cpu-laptop world. Lets get some Ryzen 2700s in here. Ya know, to make Intel feel the burn.

    Evidently fan issues can be fixed with...... Fn+1. Not the droids you were looking for, I know. But it seems 650 support may go the way of the dinosaurs. I really liked this thing too. Great temps, when pasting is done correctly, and great overall portability.

    Thanks for the clarification on that. If that can be done, I would venture to guess that a 370, if not supported, could be modded to fit Ice Lake - when it releases.

    It is anyone's guess at this point. 8700K was supposedly impossible for Z170 and Z270, but now we see evidence to the contrary. It is not plug and play. Intel sees all of this stuff, so I would be shocked if they did not take greater steps to block it more so than what they did with 8700K.

    If Intel decided to run a new platform without a refresh, it would be a really bad PR move. AMD is supporting their 3 series motherboard platform for another refresh, If intel decided against this, I think it would add ammunition to the AMD arsenal.

    From Tech power up forums...
    "Kaby Lake and Skylake shared a chipset generation. Z170 and Z270 were the same generation, despite the numbering. Z270 was just a refresh of Z170, just like Z97 was a refresh of Z87 and Z77 was a refresh of Z68"

    So, in theory, they should at least support one more jump, to Ice Lake.

    You never know any more, but I would guess that some bureaucrats are demanding that they somehow lock down support.

    I think Intel behaves like essentially all large corporations behave. They are in business to make money, and some of the things they do rub me the wrong way. But, hey... I can say the same thing about my employer. What I want does not really matter if what I want is not going to make them more money. You take the good with the bad, or you do without. That's how they roll. The alternative might suck worse, so you have to weigh the pros and cons. Sometimes I choose to do without. Other times, doing without will be too painful, so we lower the bar and move on.
