Updating i3-2367M processor to i5-3230M on X121e

2017-08-08, 19:19 PM

Would it be possible to swap the CPU on X121e from i3-2367M to i5-3230?

To my understanding the sockets have the same basic outline but is the I5 processor compatible or will I just invite a world of hurt?

Welcome to the forum!

 

The CPU is soldered into the mainboard, swapping it is not possible.
