Hi everyone hope you are doing very well. Well I would like to upgrade my Dell Optiplex 3010 Mini Tower, Core i3 3220 3.3 GHz -- I want to know what other processor can this motherboard support, i5 and i7. I have been looking information other blogs and it seems I can only upgrade to any i5 3rd generation processor but not i7. I will appreciate your help thank you!

The i7 2600 and i7 3770 works fine with the 3010 MT.

True.  I couldn't verify with userbenchmark, but eBay and Amazon both have 3010 refurbs with I7's.
