i9-9900k with Z370-E Need Help

dragonxt

So, I tried powering on my PC with a 9900k and a z370 Mobo, but I wasn't getting any error lights or video signal. Tech support is confused and said I should just return it. Ram and gpu works fine. 

 

Is this because I need to update the bios for the new cpu? Or would an error light show up for that problem.

You will need to update the BIOS, yes. You can do that with a Celeron or something

As stated above, you need CPU that works with Z370 out of the box to do a Bios update.  You won't get any errors when trying to boot newer chip on old bios.

Main system: i7 8700k 5Ghz / Asus Prime Z370-A / Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB 3000Mhz / Asus TUF RTX3080 / EVGA 750W GQ / Fractal Design Meshify C

Alright thanks. FYI Asus mobos are capable of bios updates without a CPU installed :)
