B520 cpu upgrade to i7-2600k

Hi 

Is it possible to upgrade my b520 cpu from i3-2120 to i7-2600k

I read at hardware replacing manual that i7-2600 is supported by b520

Is there is any difference in both cpu's i7-2600 and 2600k

Thank you

Guru

i dont see why it would not work but one thing to think of when upgrading the cpus is more heat, so you would have to cheack that the heatsink and fan used in yours is the same as the i7 uses and that both need the same psu

Thank you caveman31 for your reply

This is the fan installed in my device DC280009RD0 Delta Twin Brushless Fan.
I think its the fan comes with B520 i7 models.

 

And this is the thermal Lenovo 31049809 Thermal Module B520 W/gpu



And this is power supply Lenovo 36002044 Ps Delta Dps-250ab-71a Es5.0 250W


I think it will work without over heating.
