What faster CPUs can I upgrade to? (T530 Legion with i5-9400 and GTX 1660Ti)

2019-11-09, 7:16 AM

I have a Legion Desktop that is a T530, with i5-9400 and GTX 1660Ti.

Using CPU-Z, I was able to view the specifications of my motherboard:

Manufacturer: LENOVO
Model: 3704    40700 WIN 32581484
Chipset: Intel Coffee Lake    Rev: 07
Southbridge: Intel B360    Rev: 10
LPCIO: ITE    IT8613

So, what better CPU can I get for this motherboard?  Meaning, that have the same number of pins as my current CPU.

I also read on Intel's website that an older motherboard may not have the correct BIOS to run a newer CPU.

Hi OrthodoxJohn!

 

Welcome to the Community Forums!

 

We've checked the full specifications of the T530 based from your specifications and region and we've found out a certain model number 90L30000US which has the same motherboard information. 

 

Based from the Motherboard and the Product Specification page, you can upgrade up to an Core i9-9900 processor.

Part Number : 5SA0U56006
