So take your box somewhere that they have a backup cpu to test your system with.
As well did you overclock on that system and if so what is your heat sink ?

There is an MSI PC Mate Z270, and an MSI Z270-A Pro, They are different motherboards. May we see a picture of your system?

Z170 boards need a bios flash to work on kabylake chips, unfortunately the manufacture did not updater their bios when thes decided to put these boards on the market. im going to replace my z170 board for a z270, this should resolve my problem.

Indeed it takes the mobo manufactures a bit to release a new bios update for a new CPU series, and you need a compliant CPU just to get your system up and running so yes a Z270 would be needed or you can simply get a 6600k to use with the Z170. I think you are making the right choice though with replacing the Z170 with a Z270.
