Upgrading processor Extreme Gen2

Hi, I’m interested in buying the extreme (below). However, I like to know if I get the lowest processor configuration (i5-9300H), will I be able to upgrade myself to i9-9880H like this: https://tinyurl.com/vr34a38 ?? 



K450e Desktop hardware scan result code WHD01V01G-JO8W1L.

Received this code from the Solution Center scan. I’m unable to find any info on this code on the site, and have scanned the disk for errors, none found. Any suggestions?

Thanks Blud

Thinkpad X1 Extreme Gen 2 Thunderbolt egpu freeze before BIOS post

Reposting in correct sub forum:




who is using the Thinkpad X1 Extreme Gen2 with an eGPU ?

I have it perfectly working fine with my Razor Core X but once I reboot the laptop or cold boot into the OS, it just hangs before BIOS POST (black screen, no beep). I tired


Disabled Kernel DMA protection
Disabled Thunderbolt security
Changed to Legacy boot mode
Update firmware of the X1 to 1.27
Using Nvidia 2080S or AMD Vega 64 Cards
Testing both TB3 ports

Does have someone similar experience ?

I can only POST with egpu unattached and then connect it during OS boot which is quite annoying.
