Compatibility of motherboard

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone, I have a Lenovo think entre m92p motherboard and and I was wondering if anyone knows if it is compatible with an rx 5700 gpu and ryzen 5 3600 processor. I'm planning on upgrading those components.

I currently have a gtx 760 and an i5 3470.

I've been looking around the internet for a bit but couldn't find much on this. 

My priority is really upgrading the gpu but I was also wondering if it would be worth upgrading the cpu, hence the pair and question of compatibility. 

Thanks in advance!

Of course ryzen cpu is not compatible with your motherboard. RX 5700 is though, but your current cpu would be a giant bottleneck.

You have an Intel system. You will need a new motherboard and RAM to use a Ryzen CPU. The GPU may work, but you may have power and thermal issues in a prebuilt like that. 


Main Machine: Lenovo ThinkCentre | Intel Core i5-4430 (4C,4T, 3GHz) | 16GB 1600MHz DDR3 (4x 4GB) | 500GB Seagate 2.5" 7200RPM | Intel HD 4600 | Windows 8.1 Professional x64

The motherboard on its own should support the RX 5700, because it's still just PCIE. A newer version.. But PCIE is back/forwards compatible.

It won't work with the CPU, since it's an entirely different socket. That CPU will also need DDR4, not DDR3 like you have not.

 

At that point you're replacing half your PC (only left with case, PSU and drives), so I might just suggest to build a new tower in general. Usually the prebuilts have weird internal design too..

Would it be a good idea to buy an rx 580 in this case? It would be a while for me to build a whole new pc haha

Wow thanks for the nice build! Although I was thinking on using my current setup but just changing the gpu to the rx 580. Would the bottleneck be too much?

i5 3rd gen + RX 580 won't be too bad.

Depends on the game we're talking about, but most will run fine.
