Hey everyone quick question.

I ordered the Lynx Level 4 PC and noticed in the motherboard description that it has a CPU Socket Type of LGA 1151 with a H310 chipset. The CPU is an Intel Core i7-9700F which i think isnt compatible withe the above motherboard. Has there been an update that i am unaware of?

The Intel I7-9700F is a 9th Gen LGA 1151 socket 8-core CPU. The motherboard description is generic, as there will be several different brands of that budget level Micro ATX size H310 Chipset motherboard with the compatible Intel LGA 1151 Socket.   

DS are probably using an H310 M-ATX motherboard to keep your build costs low.   You can always ask DS about paying more for an upgraded mobo or build...

Don’t think so.   DS will build and fully stress test your new rig, so it wouldn’t make it if the CPU and motherboard didn’t work together.   No worries!

DS systems of all types are widely known to just last and last and last. HB has several rigs that stretch back to 2011, and I have two that are 2010 and 2011 vintage, as well as a Jan. 2018.

Routinely, we hear from DS buyers from years ago that are finally ready to purchase anew. That DS would not take care to pair any CPU with a solid motherboard even at the lower end of the computers they've designed, is not going to happen.

My DS rig has lasted almost 11 years (2009) and, with some updates over time, still performs reasonably well for all but the latest games. Good quality and good service, you can always expect that if there is a problem, they WILL make it right.
