AhmetMAhmetM Member Posts: 2

Hi everyone,I'm new to the forum and I would like to upgrade my Aspire X3810 CPU/motherboard to an i5 3570. Is there a

motherboard that would fit in the case? If not which faster cpu the current motherboard with Q8300 would support?

I appreciate any input. Thank you.Ahmet

    Hi Ahmet,

     

    You may have trouble finding a different mainboard that will go into your ASX3810 Case. I suppose you would need to look at the micro desktop mainboards.

     

    Your Q8300 CPU can be upgraded to :

    Q9300 PGA 2.5G 1333FSB 95W 6M

    Q9400 2.66G 6M 1333FSB 95W R0 SLB6B

    Intel Yorkfield Q9650 2.83G 12M 1333FSB 95W

    Intel Yorkfield Q9650 3.0G SLB8W  

     

    Goodluck on whatever you decide ! Smiley Happy

    Hello again, thank you for your prompt reply.I may go with the Q9650 cpu.I probably have to replace memory, presently it has 1066Mhz PC3-8500. All the micro sized 1155 motherboards I found have he cpu mount in middle of the board approximately, which is a bad location-right under the DVD-ROM. I was hoping possibly another member may have looked into. X3810 is a good looking case with small footprint to have next to the TV and has lots of USB connections,etc. Shame it's so hard to upgrade. As a

    senior I'm looking for a few more years of use. Any other info is appreciated. Thank you for your efforts. Ahmet.
