If you update the BIOS then yes it will work as for how well nobody knows as no two CPU´s are exactly the same

Ill repeat myself.... the vrm on the board can provide up to 600 amps of power. My 3900x at 4.3ghz all core draw 85 amps with 1.28vcore.

how many amps a VRM can handle has little to do with how good/bad it is.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)
Intel i5 6400 Skylake @ X4 4588mhz (+69.9%)

The Crosshair VII Hero is fine if you don't want/need PCIE 4.0.


Everything under that from Asus X470 lineup I would avoid.

Best Buy , B&H , Microcenter (if you have one near you)

Well I put it to you like this. Search Buildzoid's analysis of the C7H and hear what he says.... Secondly, my old 2700X ran 5.6ghz on my C7H so if my advice was unfounded
