    Nope, only Z370 series is ready for now. Cheaper MB is on the way.

  2. It's going to be a bit of a wait for those budget boards.

    "But Intel isn't providing backward compatibility with either of the older LGA1151 motherboards (Z170 and Z270) and, curiously, your only upgrade path through the end of the year comes in the form of pricey Z370 motherboards—value-oriented B350 or H370 motherboards will not debut until next year."

  3. So, from what I'm understanding from this coming from an AMD FX 9590 chip (don't ask) to Intel side. Am I correct that if I take my i7-6700 chip to an LGA 1511 (300) Mobo, that it will work. Or are none from eithe side compatible with either? It's confusing.

  4. Yes, for I7-6700, 1511 MB is fine.

    I'm almost 100% sure that Skylake (or Kabylake) CPU's will not work on the Intel 300 platform. Just as the newer Coffeelake CPU's will not work in the non 300 series motherboards.

  6. I was thinking like what 300...
    370 chipset like H, B, Z only supports coffee lake for now, and is not backward compatible :)
