- This Motherboard only supports 8th Gen Intel Core Processors on the LGA 1151 Socket. Pin assignments have changed, so 7th Gen and earlier LGA 1151 socket processors will not work. Any damage to this motherboard and / or 7th Gen and earlier LGA 1151 socket processors when used together voids the warranty of both products.
