So anything not on that list is a no no?

 

Correct.

The Intel 300-series motherboards only support 8th and 9th Gen Intel CPUs.

100 and 200-series boards supports 6th and 7th Gen CPUs.

 

100 / 200 / 300-series boards all used the "LGA 1151" socket, but 300-series is actually LGA 1151 "Revision 2".

Quote

Second revision of the LGA 1151 socket for Coffee Lake CPUs

 

The LGA 1151 socket was revised for the Coffee Lake generation CPUs and comes along with the Intel 300-series chipsets.[31] While physical dimensions remain unchanged, the updated socket reassigns some reserved pins, adding power and ground lines to support the requirements of 6-core and 8-core CPUs. The new socket also relocates the processor detection pin, breaking compatibility with earlier processors and motherboards. As a result, desktop Coffee Lake CPUs are officially not compatible with the 100 (original Skylake) and 200 (Kaby Lake) series chipsets.[32] Similarly, 300 series chipsets officially only support Coffee Lake and are not compatible with Skylake and Kaby Lake CPUs.

 

Socket 1151 rev 2 is sometimes also referred to as "1151-2".
