Default new Cpu compatible with motherboard?

Hello guys,

My friend now currently has a Intel i5-7400 with a GPU 2070 super.
This causes a huge bottleneck for him (average bottleneck percentage 67,82%).

So he is deciding to upgrade his CPU from a i5-7400 to a i7-8700K.

There might be a slight problem where I do need help.

Does his motherboard support the CPU?
His motherboard is a ASUS Prime z270-p.

When I check ''PcPartpicker'' it will say it's compatible.
However, on the ASUS site (

It is not listed as compatible.

My question is, why isn't suppported? And what happens if we do use the 8700K with this motherboard?


(sorry for poor english )
