CPU Upgrade: Can I upgrade DX4860-UB33P to Intel i7-3770 from i5-2320? Do I need updated BIOS?

MichaelSetoMichaelSeto Posts: 4Member

I was thinking about upgrading my CPU from the original Sandy Bridge i5-2320 to a faster Ivy Bridge i7-3770.

 

But some threads here said that you cannot upgrade the BIOS from P02-A2 to the P03-A3, the latter of which supports Ivy Bridge.

 

1) Has anyone done this upgrade? or any upgrade to a faster processor (especially an Ivy Bridge)?

2) Would the i7-3770 work with the current BIOS or do I need to upgrade (which seems to be impossible)?

 

Any information would be great, thank you.

 

Michael
