a quick review shows that the R7 and R8 motherboard are both Z370 chipsets, so they would both use the same kind of memory. The R7 came with the 8th gen intel processors and the R8 came with the 9th gen intel processors.

if this is to replace a faulty R7 board, i'd swap to the R8, but if this is for an upgrade, i'd look into whether you can flash the bios on the R7 board to accept the 9th gen chips and go from there.
