Can i upgrade to an i7 intel CPU?

2019-04-03, 19:25 PM

OK so, im unsure where to look, and its a little difficult for me to find an answer that I CAN UNDERSTAND.

 

A little while ago, (maybe around 1 year now? I can't remember) i bought me my first ever gaming pc, and i love it! However, for playing other games i need a bit more CPU power. Im thinking i MIGHT upgrade from my i5-7400 to an i7 cpu. Now, my question is, does my motherboard support? Like, does it have the correct chipset? By going into msinfo32.exe it says (under system model) 90H7008SMW, and manufactorer is Lenovo (of course). If we look away from the socket, can i upgrade?

 

Thanks for your time.

Greetings and welcome new Lenovo forum user,

 

Yes you can upgrade to a Intel i7-7700 without issues. Everything such as chipset and other drivers should not know anything has changed. 7400 and 7700 are more or less the same thing only internally somewhat different.
