    Question HELP: ASUS ROG G20CB upgrade to i7-7700K with BIOS version: 2202 ???

    Hi guys,

    First post on here. I bought a new ASUS ROG G20CB-DB71-GTX1070 with a i7-6700K 3.4Ghz CPU.
    I am having some bottenecking emulators and I'd like to upgrade the CPU.
    I have upgraded the BIOS from build date 2016 to the current one built in 2018 - version 2202.

    I've read on forums here and there that an updated BIOS will enable this motherboard to accept 7th gen Intel CPU.
    I'd like to drop in an i7-7700K 4.2GHz.

    Is this possible?
    Thanks!

    Is this the answer to my question? Assuming that the Asus G20CB does indeed have a H170-PRO board:

    Just tried EZ Flash Utility from BIOS and it says the BIOS 3805 is not a valid BIOS for the motherboard....

    Use google, there's a modded G20CI bios made for allowing G20CB to use 7th gen CPU's

    Known issues:
    1. OnBoard HDMI will not work (G20CI does not have onboard HDMI)
    2. LEDs will not work (the LED controllers have another I²C Address etc)

    The performance difference between 6700k and 7700k is irrelevant, why would you want to do that?
