Title:

iMac 2017 27" - i7-7700 possible?

Text:

Hey,

Can I install an Intel Core i7-7700 in an original iMac 5K mid 2017? An i7-7700K would work, but because of the heat I would like a 7700 without K?

Thanks

=== Update (05/31/2018) ===

According to the data sheet, the processors both have an Intel HD 630 graphics card. The current i5-7500 also has an HD630 card.

Apple uses only the K model in the i7. Is the processor recognized without K in the iMac?
