The below is from a thread 2 below yours.  But the exact same applies to your system and a Edge 72. 

 


There are times where a generation of ThinkCentre supported two generations of Intel processors.  But in this case, since Kaby Lake was supported in the next gen M910, I doubt that Lenovo went back to add support to the M900, since none were sold with Kaby Lake.  I'd not suggesting that it couldn't work, and you shouldn't try, but the chances are low.  If you do, please let us know the results.

I have the current bios for the chipset - I have a spare CPU i7-3770K. I am itching to try it to the board. Do you think it is okay to try?

Try, but I am doubtful that it will work.  Others have tried 'K' processors in ThinkCentres, but none successfully.
