Upgrading CPU?

870-224
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I was wondering if I could upgrade my i5-7400 to maybe an i7-8700? I know I could get the i7-7700 but the i7-8700 is a little bit cheaper,  has 2 more processor count, and it still only has a 65-watt power usage. Just a thought? (This might be a really dumb question but I'm just really wondering cause I can't find any other sites with an answer.)

@Marshall_Willia

 

Motherboard on your machine won't support Gen Intel 8 CPU's. It only has H170 chipset
