Upgrading CPU

Hey, I'm looking for help upgrading my i5 6400 to a 7th or 9th generation CPU but I don't know if it fits the socket or is compatible. So if you could tell me if it was it would be nice

Specs:
(OS Windows 10)
(GPU: 4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 (NVIDIA))
(motherboard LENOVO 364A (U3E1))
(RAM 16,0GB Single-Channel Unknown @ 1064MHz (15-15-15-36))
(Cpu Intel Core i5 6400 @ 2.70GH Skylake 14nm Technology)

While the CPU would be a nice step up.

Single channel is like driving with the parking brake on, dragging anchors or drag chutes on a drag racer.
