  1. That is an Intel motherboard designed for Skylake CPUs. You need AM4 socket motherboards for Ryzen CPUs.

  2. Best answer

    Ryzen is made by AMD and the Z170 board is for intel chips. This will not work on every conceivable level.

    Each CPU has a "socket" type, a specific number of pins (or metal contacts) in a specific configuration and thus for all of those electrical contacts/pins to connect and alllow the CPU to work it has to be matched to a motherboard with the exact same socket.

    In your case for a Ryzen CPU that is a socket AM4 motherboard which would currently be the B350 and X370.
    B350 is cheaper and for most is sufficient, but X370 has more slots for more add-on cards and GPUs, and typically more connection ports as well.
