This mobo has been running solidly for years.
For some reason I decided to give it a mid-life kicker by changing the i7-6700 to an i7-8700. But now no POST with the "C" stuck there! The PSU is a 750W and CPU connector is connected... now what? I'm dead here :(
Thank you!
Jim

    Hello welcome to EVGA Forums..
    Try shut down your pc and remove power plug from your wall. Remove CPU and CMOS battery then let drain down little power left on your motherboard! Let leave for 10mins and then try put back CPU and battery and test boot up...
    EDIT> have you try switch BIOS selector switch?

    Dear jharmon00,
     
    Welcome to the Forums!
     
    Unfortunately, I am not showing that this CPU is supported by the Z170 chipset and please see the below CPU support page as you would need to consider a B360 or higher Intel chipset to use the I7-8700 processor.
