@oliwierl,

 

Awaiting your response to check any possibility of 7th gen Intel CPU compatibility, but according to: CPU-Upgrade: Intel Core i5-6600K CPU, chances are your PC will be at least compatible with an i7-6700K.  The difference in processing performance between an i5-6600K (4 Cores, 4 Threads @ 3.50 GHz) and an i7-6700K (4 Cores, 8 Threads @ 4.00 GHz) isn't exactly overwhelming (about +5%) see: UserBenchmark: Intel Core i5-6600K vs i7-6700K, so it may be time to think about buying a new(er) desktop which can be fitted with at least a 7th gen Intel processor.  However, you can get an i7-6700K fairly inexpensively for about $94 via eBay: i7-6700k: Search Result | eBay.

 

Hope this was helpful.

 

Kind Regards,
