THINKCENTRE M73 Tower CPU upgrade ...

Hi All,

 

I want to upgrade the CPU on my M73 desktop (serial number 10B1A051FR).

Currently I have an Intel celeron G1820 @2.7 GHz.

 

Searching the Internet I found this list:

 

http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/desktops/thinkcentre/m-series-sff/m73-sff/#tab-tech_specs

 

Intel® Core™ i7-4770 (8MB Cache, up to 3.90GHz)
Intel® Core™ i5-4670 (6MB Cache, up to 3.80GHz)
Intel® Core™ i5-4570 (6MB Cache, up to 3.60GHz)
Intel® Core™ i5-4440 (6MB Cache, up to 3.30GHz)
Intel® Core™ i5-4430 (6MB Cache, up to 3.20GHz)
Intel® Core™ i5-4440 (6MB Cache, up to 3.30GHz)
Intel® Core™ i5-4570 (6MB Cache, up to 3.60GHz)
Intel® Core™ i5-4670 (6MB Cache, up to 3.80GHz)
Intel® Pentium® G3220 (3MB Cache, 3.00GHz)
Intel® Celeron® G1820 (2MB Cache, 2.7GHz)

 

This list is fot the small form factor model, I have the desktop tower one. Do they they use the same motherboard?

Any suggestion?

 

From the base configuration I already upgraded the factory 4GB RAM to 16 GB RAM, replaced the HDD with a SSD model, added a better NVIDIA graphic adapter and updated the OS to Windows 10 64bit.

Yes, they do use the same motherboard, and generally have the same processor options.  

 

Did you read the processor upgrade threads that are lower on the front page?   I detail the process I use for determining what could work there.   Let us know if you have any questions.

Not strange.  This tread is specifically for the M73.   The M72e uses a different generation processor.
