Z87 Mpower cpu and bios boot

112 0
I picked up a 4790k. Low and behold, after the pc had been away from standby power for a while it won't post with the new cpu. Had the latest bios before, but looks like that doesn't matter.
So, I can get a hold of a g1840 cpu, but I think that might need a bios update just to boot as well, or would it work. Board is dated1306 (June 2013). Or am I going to have to pick up something like a g1820?
