My 7040 currently have i7 6700 and I would like to upgrade it to 7700 or 8700 if it is possible. I couldn't find any documents about it. I would appreciate it if anyone could share link for me to check. Thanks.

Re: 7040 CPU Upgrade

You have a 6th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Processor

from 2015.

7Th GEN core I7 7700


8th GEN core I7 8700

Intel wants you to buy new chipsets and new processors which is why they keep changing things.  Fitting into the socket is only 1 parameter.

And finally, in my opinion ... the Intel i7-6700 is a nice/fast processor and a "good fit" for this class of machine.
