The specifications for Precision 3660 listed the i9-13900K as a supported processor.  But, not the i9-14900K.  Sometimes, motherboard product ID will play an important roll in CPU compatibility.  Earlier releases boards may not support later releases processors.

@Chino de Oro​ Yes, I found this out the hard way too. If you got your system with a 12th gen cpu, you can't upgrade to 13th gen without changing the motherboard to one that shipped with a 13th gen.
