I bought this last year for my new build, excellent motherboard.
Does this support i5-8th gen?

It's absurd that Intel doesn't support the 8th gen on the Z170 and 270 chipsets, considering they use the same socket.

Was hoping for a simple BIOS update so I could stick a coffee lake into my main rig.

They have consistently kept each motherboard compatible with exactly 2 generations of CPUs.

I would expect a similar concept for this going forward.

It is the same chipset, but the base motherboard specs for it were insufficient to cope with 6 physical cores of power.

Many of the good motherboards had enough power to handle the jump to 6, but instead of letting people find out the hard way -- Your motherboard doesn't support the increase in power requirements, they simply didn't allow it to happen.

Most people don't upgrade their CPUs within 2 generations of CPU time anyway, so it's not really much of a concern to most.

If you are constantly upgrading to the latest and greatest, I'm sure this is annoying.
