ThinkCentre M800 SFF Kaby Lake support

#1 Post by maxcreations » Mon Aug 12, 2019 2:24 am

Got M800 SFF with Pentium G4400. Want to upgrade it. Since 6/7th generations have the same price now, I would like to find out, does anybody tried to run 7th gen i5/i7 on Lenovo ThinkCentere with Q150 chipset?
Psref says that only 6th gen cpus will work fine, but I'm sure this doc was made at the start of production, so there was no any plans on 7th gen cpus.

Supporting newer CPUs requires a BIOS update that contains the microcode and other relevant initialization data. If Lenovo never released such a BIOS update, then you're out of luck.
Daily driver: X220 4291-C91 i7-2620M

Backup: X601 Core 2 Duo T8100
Toy: X60F Core Solo U1300
On loan: X220 4291-P79 i5-2520M
In pieces: two retired but working X61Ts
RIP: 760XD 9546-U9E; X61 7676-A24; and a BOE-Hydis HV121P01-100 in failed SXGA+ mod
