Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
The G700 has two different Motherboard types
HM70 and HM76
Since your Motherboard type is HM70 I'm afraid that the i3's won't be compatible. for HM70 compatible CPU.
About the RAM Upgrade, This model support 16GB /Two modules
Check here for reference
so, there is the answer ?

Good that you were able to review the options as it was noted from the manual referenced by Solid Cruver from this post.
An i5 3230m was tried by fellow member and would shutdown after a few minutes as reported here.
Upgrading may not be a good boost in performance so it may be better to upgrade other parts instead like a solid state drive which can also be used on maybe a new pc in the future.

Despite the replacement of the power supply, the battery and my hard disk by a hard disk SSD and the cleaning of the processor fan I find that my PC lenovo G700 core i7 shut down after a few minutes (about 30 minutes) brutally I can not understand what is the cause
Can you help me ?
