Can use i7-7700 to i7-6700 motherboard?

Hello,

Since i7-7700 and i7-6700 CPUs are almost identical except Base frequency,Turbo Frequency and DDR4 support frequency.

Is it possible to use i7-7700 on i7-6700 industrial motherboard? If yes then will there be any problem If I use DDR4-2400?

Thanks in advance!

Regards,

You need to ask the manufacturer of the motherboard if their bios supports the i7-7700.

For such an upgrade, the upgrade processor must be socket, bios, and chipset compatible.

I'm sorry this motherboard chipset does not support the 7th generation processor.

 

You can see at the following link the motherboards supported by the Intel® Core™ i7-7700 Processor:
