Newegg said my EVGA Z68 FTW 160-SB-E689-KR board only works with a Sandy bridge processor but I thought Intel made the Ivy Bridge backward compatible. Why cannot I purchase an Ivy Bridge process for this board?

Some Z68 boards run ivy with a BIOS update. The problem is that you need a sandy chip to perform the BIOS update if you get a BIOS version that doesn't recognize ivy.
