Hello everyone Has anyone installed a 9700f or 9700 processor without K on this computer? Will it work on the factory matplate b360? Now costs 9400F

I do not see why it wouldn't work.  The F just means it does not have a integrated graphics card, and that you will need a discrete one to get displays working. K means it is a unlocked processor, making it overclockable. Those are the only differences, and I do not believe they have any sort of chipset restrictions. As long as the CPU uses the same socket as what the motherboard requires, then it should be fine. Keep in mind, that this might not mean that the board supports overclocking of all kinds.

 

"B360 boards don't support CPU or memory overclocking, even with an unlocked-K processor. This means auto overclocking features such as Multicore Enhancement don't exist either."

 

Compatible Products on the B360 chipset
