It was the LGA1151v2 (z370+) that received extra pins over the 1151.

If the EEPROM is removable you can buy an updated EEPROM for ~$15 on eBay too but some are soldered so just double check first. Fairly sure the vast majority of 1151 are socketed though. My Z170 was socketed and I had to do something similar.

Do you actually need a CPU if it's an Asus board? I feel like their UEFI could be done without it but I may be wrong.

Kaltenbrunner If u live in a town, see if a computer store would do it for u, that would be the quickest, it would take them 5mins. Or ask a friend that owns an 8th gen chip.

Kaltenbrunner Don't worry nothing fried. But in order for the 9th gen CPU to work, you would have to update the BIOS 1st. So that means u need an 8th gen CPU from someone 1st.

Or yeah just send back the z370 and get z390. I think most z370 mobo made after July/August support 9th gen out of the box tho.

Mikecdm board probably just needs a bios update.

Did I fry my CPU/System?

I'm building a new PC and accidentally got the wrong motherboard for my CPU, I got an 8th Gen CPU motherboard with a 9th gen processor, and like an idiot didn't even realize it until it wouldn't come out of a boot loop and wouldnt post. It would turn on, no display, would stay running for about 20 secs, then shut down, wait a few secs, then restart, and this would go on as long as I let it. The motherboard lights would flash a little on the motherboard and the video card came on, and at first it seemed like something was wrong with the PSU because of the instability, then did some research, and found the problem. The PSU does have some audible coil whine though just being plugged into the wall and not turned on so that's something I have to look into also. Since its the same socket the CPU went in just fine if not just barely loose. I put a noctua D-15 on the top. I have since taken it apart and started looking for a z390 board.

Is it dead?
