Hi:

 

Your PC only supports the Intel 6th gen core processors.

 

If you install an Intel 7th gen core processor, I do not believe the PC will even boot up.

You're very welcome.

 

I recommend you start a new topic on that because I don't know if you can use aftermarket coolers on the motherboard.
