Upgrade processor


Recommended Posts

Hi I found an old computer at home and I want to upgrade it has a pretty old processor and wanted to know if there is a newer processor that fits the computer Pro 3520 and the processor is
(Intel (R) Core (TM) i3-3220 CPU @ 3.30Hz 3.30 GHz)
In short anyone knows what newest processor that fits this computer (if any) thanks in advance

Have you checked that:

A. Processor not soldered to board?

B. That the manufacturer Lets upgrade at all, and should an upgrade be purchased exclusively through it?

In cases of brand computers there are quite a few cases where the manufacturer confines the customer to him in such forms.

It is not soldered.

This computer is AIO and its cooling solution is limited accordingly 

This processor is a 55 watt processor so even if it can be improved to another processor which is at most 55 watts. 

There is no newer processor that fits this computer, there is More powerful from that time period that might be appropriate.

 

It is necessary to test whether the BIOS actually supports the same generation i5 and i7 processors.

 

i5-3570t, i7-3770t will fit the thermal shell if the BIOS supports.

In theory, the S models, which are 65 watts processors, can work on a computer, but this requires double testing.

How do I check if the BIOS supports and what is the best processor that can be put in this computer

The processor is not soldered for sure

According to the official specification is not supportive, so either trial and error or look for someone else across the network who has tried before you.
