T730 Upgradeability?

2020-04-13, 5:07 AM

Hi, so I am getting a T730 i9-9900K with RTX 2080 from a friend for a really really cheap price. So Im looking at how many upgrades I can do with it

 

 

My question:

 

Is the power supply upgradeable? Because I have a used 750W EVGA G3 -> the T730 have 500w (after looking around the forum, looks like its possible)

 

Can I change the motherboard (into a different one) but still use the 9900k? Like get a newer mobo then place the 9900k... (For future reference - not this time)

 

For the RTX 2080, is it ok to the change it from a blower style fan into liquid cooling? OR with a different cooling? (For future reference - not this time)

 

 

Thanks in advance :)

Hello, I was also wondering the same thing! I would like to upgrade my power supply and mother board. have you done it already? If so can you please let me know which power supply you upgraded to and which mother board you upgraded to. I tried upgrading the OEM fans to Noctua but once I plugged them in they would start then stop then start then stop. Thank you!

I upgraded the PSU to a 750w corsair - however, it is too big for the Lenovo case - The problem is Lenovo has proprietary components, like the motherboard, which make it difficult to move to a different case. (they literally don't even have a manual indicating LEDH1/LEDH2 individual components) and the MOBO is completely unique and unlike other MOBO's bought through manufacturers.

 

I also picked up the T730 from someone for a price i couldn't refuse, but, learning now Lenovo is something like Dell used to be, or even HP, and they make it rather difficult to upgrade - But, so far i have been able to replace the PSU and the RAM without an issue - The case i purchased, though, will not take the power switch to the MOBO. So, i'll have to see if a local technician can swap the connectors from the Lenovo I/O to the new case I/O.

 

My next issue would be replacing the MOBO itself, which I have been looking into - As long as the CPU socket matches, in theory, it should fit.  Such that, i9 9900k -> LGA 1151 - When i reach this phase, i'll update you.  

 

One thing i can guarantee is that i will definitely go back to building my own in the future.
