upgrade processor in Inspiron One 2330?

Jump to solution

I have the Inspiron One 2330 with the i3-2130 @ 3.4 GHz

it has the Intel B75 Express Chipset

4 GB RAM

 

Is it possible to upgrade the processor to a core i5 or even a core i7 processor?  what issues would I run into? I am fairly proficient at upgrading hardware.

 

Thanks,

Shane

Yes, you can upgrade it.  I upgraded two of them to 16gb of memory.  And one of them to an i5-3550S CPU.  Both took the memory upgrade just fine.  The one with the i5 is likewise working nicely.  Both saw improved performance.  

I'm going to try upgrading the other one to an i7-3770S later this week.

These are the two RAM upgrades I used (one was a while ago, the other this past weekend):

Both passed extended burn-in testing with memtest86 (http://www.memtest86.com/)
