You want to change your motherboard to another Z270?

Please note that Z270 has been phased out in favor of Z370/Z390, and motherboards based on these chipsets are not compatible with the 7700K.

You may have to search for second hand deals for Z270 motherboards if it is what you need.

I only have experience with one such motherboard, the Gigabyte GA-Z270X-UD5. It works well with El Capitan / Sierra / High Sierra / Mojave with my i7 7700K. I bought it at the time because of Thunderbolt 3 functionality and the lack of useless features (at least to me) like RGB lighting.

Ok , so that MB is plug and play or do I still need to do some modification in MacOS?

Provided that you use a natively supported graphics card like GTX 760 or RX 580, the motherboard is essentially working out of the box once the appropriate BIOS settings are applied.
