J550 Kaby Lake upgrade possible?

Postby Thehillchild » Tue Mar 13, 2018 21:28

Hi,

I have a J550 gen1 LGA 1151 workstation with a Skylake processor. latest bios and C230 chipset.

Is it possible to upgrade to a Kaby Lake CPU?

specifically looking at a 7700T

any other info I should take on-board?

thanks.

Hi Thechillchild,

I would say in theory that this is possible as the processors use the same socket.

The latest BIOS for the J550 included CPU microcode updates for Skylake:

28-Feb-2018
BIOS - Change V5.0.0.11 R1.25.0 for D3427-A1x
====================================================
- Microcode updates added (Skylake R0/S0).
====================================================


I would give it a try and see what happens!
