Does 4th gen motherboard support 7th gen?

GA-H81M-S2PT
CPU Support: 4th generation Intel core processors
CPU Socket: LGA 1150
I just wanna ask if a 7th generation Intel core processors is possible for this motherboard? And is it okay to use a LGA 1151 for this socket? Thank you

  1. No, LGA 1150 mobo socket will not work with an LGA socket 1151 CPU. They are physically different with a different number of contact pins.

  3. LGA 1151 CPUs will not fit into a different socket and this applies to any socket because the pins and their layouts are physicaly different so you will need a motherboard which supports LGA 1151 sockets with a 7th gen Intel CPU.
