Intel i7 8700 on an Lenovo 364A motherboard

Hello,

 

I have recently considered purchasing the Intel i7 8700 processor and replacing my current Intel i5 6400. The motherboard, as said in the title, is a Lenovo 364A motherboard. My question is, can I replace my current processor with the i7 8700 or are there any in incompatibilities that I have to consider when buying the new processor.

 

Specifications:

CPU: Intel Core i5-6400
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1070 Founders Edition

RAM: Samsung M378A1K43BB1-CPB 1x8GB 
MBD: Lenovo 364A
SSD: Sandisk SD7SB6S256G1001 256GB
HDD: WD Blue 500GB (2010)
HDD: Seagate ST3500630AS 500GB

 

Thanks! Smiley Happy

Hello!

 

No, I never changed out the CPU because I didn't want to risk anything. Also I don't think that the 8700's chipset is compatable with the motherboard.
