Hi,

I have an Acer E1-431 with CPU Intel Sandy Bridge B960 (2,2 GHz, 2MB L3 Cache, Socket 988B rPGA), MotherBoard EA40_HC chipset Intel Sandy Bridge HM77.

I have just changed its old HDD to a SDD Crucial MX100 512Gb. I see that my CPU is now laging and I was wondering to upgrade it to a Core i3, i5 or i7 but I don't know what type this motherboard supports.

Is it a good Idea ? Can anyone help me?

Tkx

Hi,

The Bios is an Insyde Corp. V2.05 (09/06/2012). Do you think a Core I3 should be supported ?

Since I changed my HDD for an SDD, my Acer works well only when plugged to electricity (it finally freezes after a while on battery). Do you think changing my CPU would solve that problem?

Thanks again for your help.
