Are my hardware components compatible?

I bought hardware two years ago to build a server (first time for me) and am just now trying. The CPU doesn't seem to fit the motherboard. I have an Intel Core i7-8700K Coffee Lake 6-Core 3.7 GHz (4.7 GHz Turbo) LGA 1151 (300 Series) 95W BX80684I78700K Desktop Processor Intel UHD Graphics 630 and an Intel DH67BL Media Series Socket 1155 Micro ATX Motherboard. The processor requires the 300 series. What motherboard should I use?

Your processor require socket 1151 and a bios that supports the processor.

The Dh67BL does not support this processor:

You need to find a manufacturer's board that supports this processor (via its bios). Here are some boards:
