motherboard upgrade

I got a legion y720 desktop with rx 570 graphic card. I want to add one more graphic card and crossfire it, but there is no second x16 PCIe slot in it.

 

If I replace the mother board with a new one from amazon or elsewhere, would windows licence become void?

Re: motherboard upgrade

Hi S.Guru,


Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.

 

Yes, Windows will not get activated as nowadays license is embedded on Motherboard. Also for more idea please check below article:

I hope the above information helped you. 

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Regards,
Prabhansh
