If the future i7 processor fits in the socket of your mainboard,
it should work. Sometimes you have to update the bios first though.
For i3, i5 and i7 processors, I think there are two types of sockets,
and I'm pretty sure you can't put a CPU made for one socket into
a motherboard made for the other type.
Yes, it will work if the MB is specified to work with integrated graphics.
Pretty sure there are many of those both from MSI and ASUS. Just check

Yeah, it works great. Not very cheap though. You probably
still need one or more fans for the computer case, but the advantage
is that you get control over which fans you have in your
system (a noctua fan running at 400RPM is extremely quiet),
you can easely replace old fans, and you can avoid
fans changing speed depending on the temperature (which all
As long as the PSU is placed quite far away from the CPU (for instance
a computer case where the PSU is placed at the bottom),
you have a tiny bit of ventilation in the computer case, and
you don't have a huge gfx card or other
things which consumes lots of power or generates heat, it
shouldn't be a problem using a fanless PSU. Infact, even that tiny
bit of ventilation might not be needed anymore with the
new fanless PSU from seasonic.
