Upgrading Lenovo Tower 5i: i5 10th gen to i7

2021-02-20, 16:16 PM

Hi,

 

I currently have a Lenovo TOwer 5i with a Processor: 10th Generation Intel® Core™ i5-10400F Processor (2.90 GHz, up to 4.30 GHz with Turbo Boost, 6 Cores, 12 Threads, 12 MB Cache). Is it possible to upgrade it to an the i7? Not sure if I can just easily swap it out. Any help would be great.

Good day.

 

If your machine is a type 90NC, have a look at pages 119-122 of your hardware manual: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/desktop_pub/legion_r5_28imb05_legion_t5_28imb05_hmm_20200429.pdf

 

Some disassembly required. Not sure how "easily" done, depending on which type of cooling system you have.

 

Regards.
