MSI Z170A Xpower Titanium Modded, compatible con Intel Core i3-8350K

The seemingly impossible (as per Intel) has happened: an Intel Z170 motherboard was made to support Intel's latest Core i3-8350K. This news comes after various reports and counter reports went for and against this being actually viable, according to motherboard socket pin count and function allocation. That this happened not on a Z270 motherboard, but on a Z170, really does serve to open our eyes as customers to what sort of games might be being played by tech companies in product refreshes and new motherboard chipsets. De acuerdo, el mod no es perfecto, pero difícilmente lo sería, de todos modos. Un usuario de Baidu lo ha informado, quien ha publicado fotos y validaciones de CPU-Z del combo de placa base CPU + poco probable. Este mod se logró a través de modificaciones personalizadas del BIOS y cambios de microcódigo, y no por un equipo de ingenieros de Intel; como tal, todavía hay algunos errores que solucionar, como el IGP no funciona y la ranura PCIe principal no está disponible.
