There are no specs or pin outs provided ever.

If you change your cpu its not covered under the warranty.

4th Generation Intel® Core™ I3, i5, i7 Desktop processors socket 1150 work others don't.

No Idea how you get 99% faster unless you are using the Mhz myth.

I5 4670T will work.

Where can I find the mother board specs for the Inspirion 3847 ? I am thinking about replacing the G3220 with a Core i5-4670T. Specs show it should be 99% quicker than than the present G3220. I want to confirm the MB can handle the chip.

(If you change your cpu its not covered under the warranty.) Don't care about the warranty, it was a cheap pc so that is not an issue.

 (No Idea how you get 99% faster unless you are using the Mhz myth.) This was simply quoted on this site, cpu-upgrade.com. If it is true,fine if not oh well. They listed about 40 chips that might work in a 1150 slot.  

I have added a video card, 8 gb Ram, and the machine is still a bit slow. So for $200 bucks appears to be a simple and cheap/easy upgrade to a quicker machine. 

Any other suggestions ?

Wabbit, 

You post is timely as i have yet to upgrade my chip and have been suffering with my 3220. I will download Speccy and see what I come up with.

Thanks.
