The Intel 6800k is a
Intel Core i7-6800K 15M Broadwell-EI installed using a Microsoft DVD using a Sata connection.
The motherboard has USB 2.0 ports I used for the mouse and keyboard.
The motherboard DVD came with the USB 3.0 drivers that I installed after Windows 7 was installed.

Some more info from Speccy.

I can change to several different colors with the push of a button. The RGB light function is built into the case and the motherboard.
At the present time I'm using the RGB built in light system from the Phanteks case. No programs to install and no bios to fool with.

A 6800K is a Broadwell E, not a Skylake.

The issue is not with the cpu, it`s the chipset on the board that gives you problems.

But I had no issues installing W7 on my Z170 with a dvd and using the 2.0 ports for the keyboard and mouse.
