Fastest CPU for TS200?

Hi,

 

I'm thinking of upgrading the CPU in my TS200.

 

What is the fastest processor that will work in it? Should all LGA1156 processors work?

 

Many Thanks

T

Thanks!
So - will other fast 1156 socket processors like the Core i7-8xx not work, or are they just untested / not supported?

Cheers

I took a punt and installed an i7 875K.

So far it seems to be working fine.
