Max CPU Upgrade for M83 Tiny ?

Hello everyone,

I currently have a Tiny M83 with a CPU i3 4150T and I would like to upgrade the processor for an i7.

Is an i7 3770 or i7 4770 compatible with this computer?

I see that some computer M83 Tiny have original i7 4758T, is this the maximum model supported?

Thanks for your help

You probably meant  i7-4785T.

 

Someone here reported of a successfull installation of Xeon E3-1275Lv3  in M93p Tiny, maybe it will also work.

The i7-4770, the correct generation for this model, but is a 84w desktop processor, requiring a full-size cooler.  The Tiny models use a thin laptop type cooler, and can only accommodate low-power processors. 

 

And yes, a Xeon processor does work, which provides better processing power, but comes with the basic Intel HD graphics versus the HD 4600 of the i7-4785T, which is roughly twice as good.  If what you are doing is much more processor intensive than graphical, then the Xeon would be better, otherwise this i7 may be better overall.  I can personally attest that the HD 4600 graphics are decent (and would not want the basic graphics instead.)
