gnrpatience, welcome to the forum,

 

on the forum home page you will see, on the right side, a banner for the ThinkPad Virtual Agent. I suggest a visit.  (I appreciate that you may not have visited the site because it has ThinkPad in the title).

 

If you select You want to know about the Intel Chipset announcement you will find a list of affected systems, I do not see the K320 in the list and therefore assume it is not an affected system. Yes the K330 is listed.

Hi AndyP,

 

Thanks for answering, yes I already visited that link and found the bulletin

 

"

Possible Lenovo models affected may include the latest generation of IdeaPad laptops and IdeaCentre desktop PCs, including:

  • IdeaPad laptop Y460P, Y560P
  • IdeaCentre desktop K330

"

Since it says "Possible Lenovo models affected may include the latest IdeaCentre desktop PCs inluding ideaCentre K330" I thought that it means all IdeaCentre plus K330 which includes K320.....

 

Thanks!

The K320 doesn't have series 6 generation chip set so it can't be affected.  See the psref for Idea Centre Desktops; none of the cpus listed for the system are second generation.

Re: Lenovo IdeaCentre k320 sandy bridge recalled ?

Hi,

I downloaded the icbook for ideacentre desktops and after comparing the K320 with K330 which is listed with the sandy bridge recall i dont see the difference.

How do you know K330 have seres 6 generation chip and K320 doesnt.

THanks

because the cpus in the 320 aren't second generation i3-i7, identified by a 2 at the start of the cpu number.

 

Intel offer this method for you to check your system yourself.
