LENOVO THINKCENTRE M92P SFF - i7 3770K Support?


Recommended Posts

Your best bet is to look up the product support page for it as it will have a document that will state what CPU SKU's it can come with and from there you can make a determination.

It says it supports the i7 3770, why couldn't it also support the 3770k?

It likely does, the "K" just represents the CPU is unlocked and overclockable but other than that its exactly the same as the 3770. 

 

However, as its officially documented, you would just have to purchase one and give it ago, or better yet do some Googling to see if someone else has already attempted what you are looking to do 🙂

 That said, I briefly tested a 3770K in an M92P Tiny and that did not current throttle at all. It overheated and shut down in Cinebench. Big Grin Do don't try it on an M92P Tiny.

 

If it works in an M92P Tiny I'd assume it'd work in the bigger M92P non-Tiny.

  • HeyItsChris changed the title to LENOVO THINKCENTRE M92P SFF - i7 3770K Support?

So it's guaranteed to work, thanks.  I can figure out the thermals.  Do you think this heasink would work?  I was going to mount a super-high-powered fan to the copper block heatsink to keep it cool.  Are these guaranteed to mount to the mounting holes for LGA 1155?

 

By the way the M92P I bought came with an i5 3470.

 

WWW.EBAY.COM

CPU cooling fan and heat sink that fits on LGA 2011 2066 1150 1151 1155 AMD AM3, and probably a few more, sockets. The fan uses a 4-pin connector, see photos, and requires 12 volts. There is no thermal...
WWW.EBAY.COM

LGA1150 LGA1151 LGA 1155 LGA 1156. Does not include rear/opposite side of board mounting brackets or screws. 90.0 x 90.0 x 26.5 mm.

So we got the M92P SFF.  First we pulled the power supply apart, its fan is a red/black 2 wire which runs at my estimate 5v operation by stock way too little airflow as its the primary exhaust for the entire system as well to get that hot air out.  So we removed the red/black from it's 2-pin connector with its metal end and made a hook out of the end of the metal pin that goes into the 2-pin fan header connector in the psu power supply & wired the fan to the eps 4 pin 12v brown + positive / black - negative & wired the red (+ positive) to the brown + positive wire & the black wire to the black ground negative - wire.  Then simply wrapped it up in electrical tape.  This instantly gave 10x more airflow for exhaust & we removed the grill from the psu fan at the same time further reducing restriction.

 

Then we pulled the blue pwm wires on both the CPU fan & the front intake chassis fan which are Deltas as well.  I think all the fans are Deltas so thats great.  Just pulled the blue pin wire from its connector using a small flat head pressing on the connector and removing the pin wire from the connector of the 4-pin pwm fan connectors.  We also repasted the CPU i5 3470 with Arctic Silver MX-4 from edge to edge covering every square millimeter of the chip, not a waste of a brain cell like most people do is a dot in the center & call it a day or an X or whatever-the-f**** paste configuration they desire to run hot & unstable which is always the case.  If you want the purest most maximum performance thermally, you always have to paste from edge to edge by finger or spatula the entire chip covering every last square millimeter with paste so its the purest most real contact imaginable.  This yielded a 39C maximum on the CPU PACKAGE & while it saw 96 watts of consumption when its TDP is rated to 77W.  It saw 360 points single thread on CPU-Z bench & 1350 points or so multi (not bad at all for an old chip).

 

We hooked up 128gb ssd & 500gb hdd 2.5" & 250gb hdd 3.5" and it all got detected with 25C drive temps sitting right in front of the about 50CFM delta 80mm AFB0812SH chassis intake fan.

 

We also upgraded the RAM to 32GB DDR3-1600.  Not to mention the GPU to 1400MHZ overclocked 1.050 volt RX 550 with memory set from 1500 to 1875MHZ & its TDP TDC raised to 75W 75A with the temp limits at 84C core vrm & 84C hotspot & 88C shutdown with a special fan profile that achieves full speed at 56C and as soon as it leaves load it goes silent instantly.

 

It's performing beautifully.

 

We will consider upgrading the GPU & CPU from RX 550 4GB DELL OEM LP to RX 6400 4GB LP OEM & to the 3770K as its rated 77W just like the current chip i5 3470 so there will not be a single issue with thermals if you have a functioning brain that understands computer science & thermals.  I went to college for computer science but didn't learn anything.  Its all experience & knowledge from doing & testing & trying new methods year after year learning more & more & more that helps more than college did for me at least in my personal opinion but to each their own.
