    The Z170 chipset doesn't support Kaby Lake CPUs out of the box. Support was introduced with a firmware update. If your BIOS isn't at least the minimum required version (F20), then it most likely will not work. The BIOS version may be specified on the box, on a sticker that may include the motherboard's serial number.

    If the BIOS version is less than F20, you will need to get your hands a Skylake CPU to install temporarily in order to perform a BIOS update.

    Not sure what the current BIOS is but it appears to still have the initial version release.
