    Hey everybody.

    So I've been considering upgrading this monster from a 6700K to whatever the beefiest CPU that it will accept. I've seen i7 9700 and i9 9900s being mentioned with a modded BIOS but is anything else required for the i9? I'd love to get one for the extra threads for when I'm working in Unreal Engine and other tools.

    I plan on waiting to see what happens with GPUs after NVidia finally launches their new chips.

    Any feedback or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    I could have sworn i read on here that the whole mobo has to be swapped out to do i9, but i could be wrong.

    From what I remember, it needs a firmware mod for 8th gen. While for 9th gen you need a pinmod for the CPU, before you can run it on Z170. @Papusan

    Both 8th and 9th gens need BIOS and pin mods.

    Yep, have to be careful of VRM temps if you are going to trash the bigger chips.
