Lenovo G580 CPU Upgrade



I have an Lenovo G580 Celeron Dual core 1,8 Ghz, 2Gb DDR3, the pocessor is B830 I think.

My question is what kind of processor should I upgrade from i3 series or i5 series?

I have a list with a lot of models with socket G2 but I'm not sure if all are suitable.

This is the list:


Can anybody help me?

Re: Lenovo G580 CPU Upgrade

Hy spidey101,


thank you very much for your time to answer me.But, because I am not a specialist can you answer me to another 2 questions?

1. After instaling the new processor I need to update the bios?

2. I need some thermal paste when I install the CPU?
