Hi Surajpawar,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

If you are planning on changing the socket for a CPU upgrade, then it would be a great challenge and most likely would not be supported by the systemboard itself. The socket 1170 do not go independently and relies on supported board hardware and configuration.

 

The Intel® Pentium® Processor N3540 has a BGA soldered CPU with the socket onboard so it is not upgradable.

 

It would be best to invest for a future proof machine instead considering the parts costing and labor on the project.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards
