    Hi,

    I wish to replace the existing i7 6700 cpu with the k version.
    The motherboard is Thimphu
    The socket type is LGA 1151.

    During my search I came across the 8th series of this - 8700K which claims to fit the socket type.

    Is this the case or should I stick to the 6700K.

    Thanks in advance
