    Programming motherboard
    « on: November 21, 2017, 09:05:42 AM »
    I just got an Intel Core i5-8600K CPU which didn't fit my motherboard at the moment. My computer is a - Lenovo H50 Tower PC (AMD A10-7800 3.9 GHz, AMD Radeon R7 240 2 GB Graphics, 12 GB DDR3 RAM, 2 TB HDD, DVD-RW, with a new graphics card installed. I'm wondering what motherboard would fit my CPU and the chassis to my computer which isn't the biggest. Any suggestions on what kind of motherboard I should by?

    You need a Micro-ATX Motherboard with an LGA-1151 socket. You also need new RAM, as any LGA 1151 Motherboard will be using DDR4.

    H50's power supply is only 280W and the i5 8600K will probably need around 400W to work comfortably, so you should add a PSU to your list.

    At that point you may as well add a case and make it a new system altogether.
