Hi there,

I have an old MSI Trident 3 8RC-007CA that has an Intel i5-8400 CPU in it (according to CPU-Z, anyways) and I'm looking to upgrade at some point in the near future, ideally to an i7 as I doubt that the mobo could handle an i9. But being relatively new to PC hardware, I'm not sure if it's possible. Could someone walk me through how to select a compatible CPU and how to update the BIOS (if needed) if it's possible? I've already upped the memory to 16GB and gave it a SSD for what it's worth.

If any other information is needed, please let me know.
