Can my MOBO run 8th gen Intel Cpu?

I found that in the MSI website that my Z170a Gaming m3 motherboard is an applicable model for an 8th gen cpu, Here's a picture. And i upgraded my MOBO to the latest update. But if i can't really upgrade my CPU is there a budget mobo good for an 8th gen?. Here's the link for the MSI website https://www.msi.com/faq/motherboard-2878

You are looking for a budget mobo for a CPU you can't afford? What am I missing?

only 3 series (h310, b360, z370, z390) can use 8th or 9th gen cpu's. Because of a different pin layout you really shouldn't try to use an older 1151 board for it

Yes, I believe so.(You need a 300 series MB) That list is probably based on the socket the MB has, not the chipset. So I'd not trust that list.

All 100 or 200 series motherboards are INCOMPATIBLE with 8th and 9th gen. You need a 300 series motherboard. If you're not going to use an i7 or an overclockable processor, the H310 chipset is what you want. Most B360 and H370 boards will also handle the non-overclockable i7 8700 just fine. Z370 and Z390 are for overclockable CPUs.
