B520 with Mainboard model# 7745 processor upgrade

2013-01-18, 0:18 AM

Will a B520 with Mainboard model# 7745 and Bios Ver. DUKT34AUS accept a new i7-3770K processor upgrade?

 

I want to upgrade the i3 processor to i7 and need to find the best value and latest technology that will work in the model 7745 motherboard before I buy the processor.

Hi

 

Welcome to the community.

 

As per your concern, you can use the Intel® Core™ i7-2600QC Processor in this system.

Will the i7-2700 or i7-3770 work? I ask because these processors are easier to find new at a lower price.

I read that the i7-3770k will work with the H67 chipset.... "A nice touch, however, is that you don’t automatically need to upgrade your motherboard to one using the new 7 Series Chipset in order to get all these benefits. Because Ivy Bridge chipsets are completely compatible with the LGA1155 socket and chipset, they’ll work in Sandy Bridge motherboards too (though only the H61, H67, P67, and Z68 chipsets are supported). You won’t get every single feature, but you’ll get a lot of them, plus compatibility improvements and performance of the new chips as part of the deal"

The Lenovo Motherboard has the H67 chipset but does it require a bios update. Do you think it's possible to update the bios to make all features of the new processor work? what about the Intel 4000 series graphics integrated support?
