Be aware that both the M700 and M800 have, or will be soon (depending on your country), replaced by the M710 (the M800 ends):

Hello, hope this email finds you well.

I'm writing you to ask for you help.

I'have seen you helping many people with some question about pc stations.

My question is... Is it possible to use I5 7400 in a Thinkcentre M800?

Officially, M800 is Intel 6th gen only.  The next gen ThinkCentre used Intel 7th gen, like the i5-7400.  There is a thread, currently at the top of the front page, where owners have hacked the BIOS to add microcode for the 7th gen Intel, but that is highly risky, as it could brick your system forever is done incorrectly. 

You don't say what processor you currently have, or what your specific complaint is.  Because the i5-6500 has identical CPU performance, and is ready available and inexpensive.  The integrated Intel graphics is one generation behind the i5-7400, if that's your complaint, but that can be more than addressed by purchasing a good, used GT 1030 DDR5.
