Is upgrading my Lenovo Y710 Cube-15ISH - Intel Core i5-6400 to Intel Core i7 6700k possible?

I feel like I need more performance out of my processor, and I tried using a new Intel i3 that didnt work because it was too new for my motherboard. I am wondering if it is possible to upgrade my CPU to an Intel Core i7 6700k?

Yes, it is of the same generation so the socket would fit. You would not be able to take any of the advantages of overclocking though as the motherboard, being stock, won't support that. It is still good for the faster base and turbo frequencies though.
