I would like to upgrade my Lenovo B590 Model 6274 (Intel Core i3-3110M 2.4 Ghz, 4 Gb of RAM...). by adding another 4 Gb of RAM and upgrading the CPU.
I looked on the forum about similar posts, that redirects me to the page 85 of the hardware maintenance manual:
At this point, I thought about getting a second hand Intel i5-3210M 2.5 Ghz.
But I find this post that simply mentions that the i5-3210M is not supported:
How can I be sur this CPU is compatible with the computer?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Welcome to the Community Forums.
As shown from the hardware manual , i5-3210M is the highest CPU offered for the B590.
This is not only compatible but was also released with the i5-3210M as marketed here.
The mentioned post was relating to probable upgrade from Celeron to icore series on a G500 in relation to the chipset compatibility only.
Intel HM76 chipset supports i5-3210m as shown here (to choose compatible products).
CPU upgrade checker here shows Intel Core i3-3110M (PGA) CPU has 91% upgrade chance for Intel i5-3210M.
Finally using the same Machine Type: 6274 here on the parts lookup page offers part number 102500301 Intel I5-3210M 2.5G L1 3M 2cPGA CPU.
Hope this helps answer your query.
