Hello Marijan97, 

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.   

 

Please check the Supported Operating Systems for Intel® Processors website: 

 

  1. Visit  Processor OS Compatibility and look for the section matching the first part of the processor. For example, if the processor is i7-9700KF, look for the processor under the Intel® Core™ i7 after expanding the list. 
  2. Locate all the operating systems (OS) that are supported for this processor. 
  3. The list also shows the Intel® Core™ generation and the segment showing whether it is a desktop or mobile processor.  

 

For instance, the "latest" 1151 socket desktop processor compatible with Windows 7 is the Intel® Core™ i7-6700K Processor, but on the mentioned above website you can find several ones. 

 

Regarding the compatibility, you can use the same tool to find compatible motherboards with this CPU. After you have chosen the correct motherboard, you need to check with the manufacturer for OS compatibility with their board.

Hello Marijan97,  

 

You are more than welcome! 

 

I would just like to clarify that this i7-6700K processor is only compatible with 100 and 200 series chipset (as all the 6th and 7th generation processors). You can check that here under "compatible products" and in the compatible motherboards website. Therefore, I am afraid that an H310 chipset will not work with this CPU.   

 

Before you install the CPU you choose, make sure that you are using a compatible motherboard: How to Find Compatible Motherboards for Your Intel Processor

Hi,

No. Does not work.

Last compatibile chipset for Win7 is Intel 300 Series Motherboards.

CPU i7-6700K will not work with that chipset, as You mentioned
