hi, can i upgrade my CPU from Intel Core i5-6400 to Intel Core i7-6700k ?
the lenovo support website shows I can go to the i7-6700 3.4 CPU, but I want to know if i can install the i7-6700k for that extra performance of 4.0ghz base?
Is this a possibility for my PC?

EXTRA INFO. Im also getting a 24pin to 10pin adapter for a new standard 550W semi-modular PSU and a AMD Radeon RX 580 8gb, and wonder if there will be comp-ability issues.
I do know the regular i7-6700 would work, as it is shown on the support site, wondering if the K version would work on this motherboard.
I also know that with this motherboard i won't be able to over clock it, but i can probably activate booster on it and get 4ghz or more right?
