Upgrade for a friend.

I remember there being some hickups between LGA1151 motherboards a few years back and want to make sure that an upgrade from the G5400 to 9700(k) is compatible. I know overclocking is out of the question on the B360, but am unsure about overall compatibility.

The generations for CPU support were split between 6th/7th gen and 8th/9th gen. B150 and B250 are for 6/7, B360 and B365 are for 8/9.

 

Update your BIOS and you're good to upgrade.

Budget (including currency):

 Irrelevant

 

 

Country: Sweden

 

 

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming. 

 

Other details:

Parts:

Svive Luna X750 W Midi Tower

            
Cooler Master B500 V2 


Intel Pentium Gold G5400 Processor

            
MSI B360M Bazooka, Socket-1151       

       

ASUS GeForce GTX 1050 2GB

---------

 

We basically want to upgrade this. I remember there being some hickups between LGA1151 motherboards a few years back and want to make sure that an upgrade from the G5400 to 9700(k) is compatible. I know overclocking is out of the question on the B360, but am unsure about overall compatibility.

 

Thanks!

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

Excellent! Do you think the BIOS upgrade is a necessity? It's a christmas present.

You'll have to check the BIOS version, which is easy to do.

 

B360 motherboards were manufactured before 9th gen CPUs were released so the majority of them shipped without a compatible BIOS for 9th gen CPUs. It's very likely that you need to update.

I guess we'll upgrade to be sure.
