Will a new processor fit my motherboard?

Recommended Posts

Hello you guys

I have a processor that does not support 11. The CPU I have now - I7-6700

I want to buy a new processor that will fit my motherboard.

While checking the Zap site I found a processor. And I do not know it suits me.

Does the new I7-8700K processor fit my motherboard - MAXIMUS VIII HERO - Intel® Z170?

Here are details:





My motherboard:




This is for a new processor that will support moving to Windows 11 in the future


Thanks in advance!

I have a processor that does not support Windows 11.

Microsoft will no longer completely block the installation of WIN11 on older computers

Only critical updates and this of course will also find a way to install without any problem

Hi Aviv

You gave me very good advice. You were right.

I will wait for next year in 2022 and hear what Microsoft decided to say installation 11 on old computers.

And if Microsoft does not install old computers at the end. I will buy new only And processor and memory.



The link to the site link you gave me does not work The site will be very very slow and nothing is seen on the written site.

I also checked a browser And the same thing nothing this site.

Fix a link to your site. And I'll check your site again.


Thank you
