    Until an ASUS Rep steps in all I can verify is information on the MVIII Extreme
    ASUS advertised bios version 2002 on all Z-170 boards as supporting KabyLake, and it did at all default settings, recognize and boot without issue but I could not raise multiplier, blck, memory frequency, etc.
    bios ver. 3007 gave full support for KabyLake on my M8E. so I would safely say the 3000 series bios fully support KabyLake
    The thing I am not sure of would be any non ROG boards that do not support the bios flashback feature being able to flash the bios with a KabyLake CPU in the socket to give support

    You may want to wait for an official response from ASUS but if your board has bios 2002 or newer I would say your good to go
