Hello. I am a brazilian user and would like to know if motherboard Intel DQ87PG support i7 4790k, because my current Asus Sabertooth z97 Mark 1 motherboard has died. My only choice to buy is DQ87PG and in The CPU support list there is no information about 4790k support. Thanks very much!

Sincerely,

Hugo Aragão.

No. The 8 Series Intel Desktop Boards support only the standard Haswell processors; they do not support any of the Haswell Refresh or Devil's Canyon processors. The supported processor list is provided here: https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/boardsandkits/desktop-boards/DQ87PG.pdf.

I thought it would be possible with latest BIOS. Thank you so much for your attention.

Sorry, no. Since the board has been EOLed and the Desktop Boards business completely shutdown, the BIOS is not being sustained nor enhanced. At this point, only security fixes are being implemented (Intel takes security *very* seriously).
