New Guide Shows How To Get “Coffee Lake” Chips Working On Intel 100/200 Chipsets

Well it turns out that “Coffee Lake” is pin-compatible with older LGA1151 motherboards based on the 200-series and 100-series chipsets. Modders were able to get these chips to work on older platforms. Intel uses software to block these chips from working on older motherboards, this comes in the form of the CPU’s microcode, the iGPU’s UEFI GOP driver, and certain management engine bootstraps on the side of the motherboard BIOS that lets it recognize new chips.
