Flex 3 1130 processor upgrade

Can the included Intel Celeron N3050 processor be swapped out for an i3? Is it in a socket? Is the fan big enough to cool a new processor?


Thanks for any info!

Re: Flex 3 1130 processor upgrade

Good day and welcome to the community.

Looking at the hardware manual: there's no indication that the CPU is socketed (vs soldered to the system board, which is common for this class of machine). Pages 62-64 show the various system boards (item #7), with their configurations. There are no "i core" processors listed.


Hope this helps to clarify.
