Y910 AIO - Can I upgrade the CPU?

2018-02-03, 11:30 AM

Hello,

 

Just a quick question. I own a Y910 aio with an i7 6700 and GTX 1070. I would like to upgrade the cpu some time in the future and I heard that the 7th generation and 8th generation processors use the same socket. But with limited knowledge in computer hardware, I would like to make sure that the computer would be able to support it before i take it apart ;) 

So, would it be possible to install, say, an i7 7700k or i7 8700?

Thanks.

Solved! See the solution

Hello Ziyi,

 

according to the Hardware Maintenance Manual for the Y910 AIO, only these two CPUs are supported with the machine:

 

 

I don't think that the current BIOS of the Y910 supports the 7th and 8th Gen Intel CPUs, but to be sure, there's only two ways of finding out - trying it out on your own or waiting for a response from one of the community members who might have already attempted such an upgrade.

 

Best regards,

Thanks, are there anyone who has actually attempted the upgrade? If there isn't, will lenovo provide a bios upgrade in the future? The y910 was advertised with upgradability in mind, so wouldn't it at least provide bios updates for cpus that use the same socket?

Perhaps it helps you to know that Amazon US is selling a variant with the 6700K processor:

https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-Desktop-EXTREME-i7-6700K-processor/dp/B06XYX85QY

 

For the Kaby Lakes and Coffee Lakes Lenovo has to make a new BIOS update I guess...

 

Lenovo could do that with the new BIOS update for the Intel microcode update (Spectre/Meltdown-Patch), but I don't think they will do that.

On the other side: The 7700K or 8700K would cause even more heating/cooling/fan noise problems than now with the 6700...
