Will an intel i5-7500 work in an Asus - MAXIMUS VIII RANGER motherboard?

I have found the perfect CPU at just the right clock speeds for my purposes (i5-7500). I have not yet ordered my processor but I have already ordered my Asus - MAXIMUS VIII RANGER. The board has a z170 chipset but the intel 7th gen processors use z270. To my understanding, a z170 chipset motherboard will work with a z270 CPU as long as you update the BIOS. I have heard that the MAXIMUS VIII RANGER has flash bios, but I don't know that the flash bios would work. Could someone let me know if there is a way to work an 15-7500 in a Asus - MAXIMUS VIII RANGER. If so, please let me know. If NOT please let me know also. Thank you!!!:)

    i5-6600 is 100% compatible with z170 motherboard and has almost the same clock as i5-7500. Basically, Kaby Lakes are just overclocked Skylakes. And why don't get 6600k and get the most from your motherboard?
