Probably a really dumb CPU Upgrade question but anyway

2020-05-15, 13:17 PM

Hi,

 

So I am considering a C530 with an i3-8100 CPU.  

 

I dont really play many hugely powerful games - Civ 6, Starcraft 2 so I am guessing it is fine for that.  It is old, but a really nice price right now.

 

My question is what CPUs can I upgrade it to?

 

I didnt think this would be a difficult thing to find out, but so far no joy.

 

If I get it and find it is way to slow I would like to be able to throw say an i5-9400f or something in there and speed things up without spending too much.

 

In the specs for the computer it lists:

 

  • 9th Generation Intel® Core™ i9-9900
  • 9th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-9700
  • 9th Generation Intel® Core™ i5-9400
  • 9th Generation Intel® Core™ i5-9400F
  • 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-8700
  • 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i5-8400
  • 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i3-8100

 

but are these motherboard dependent?

 

Can they all run on the motherboard the i3-8100 would come on?

 

What about 10 series CPUs?

 

Thanks
