I5 core 8600k wont work

So i got my new cpu and installed it just fine, plug power supply back in and fans and lights are on for a second then turns off. If i reinstall my old cpu, intel core i5 7500, everything runs as normal and boots. I have already updated my Gigabyte BIOS by using my old 7500 in doing so. Is it possibly dead?

It's not dead, your board is completely incompatible.

 

You need a B360, H370, or Z370 motherboard.

You just changed cpu, not hard drive or ram?

I5 8600k is on the 8Th Generation Z370 motherboard you cannot run 8th gen on a 7th gen board you need to upgrade your motherboard buddy

8th Gen needs a 300 series chipset, you'll notice none of the Z170 or Z270 boards have support for 8th Gen listed.

The 8600k is incompatible with your motherboard. You need a new motherboard to use it.

^^^ Z170 and Z270 both work with 6th and 7th gen 6000/7000 series chips, but for any 8000/9000 series you need a Z370 (with updated BIOS for 9th gen) or Z390 board.
