Re: buying a new gpu and processor

The CPU as indicated above by others is soldered on to the board which also houses the GPU. Even if you have micro-soldering skills and manage to pin out a new CPU, the cooling isn't going to be sufficient. You'll have to upgrade the heatsink which runs alongside the bottom; you won't be able to use a CPU cooler unless you move the static shields on the back panel and make a hole for your new CPU cooler.

Again, this specific AIO model is not very upgradeable - you can upgrade the RAM to 4GB and add a larger capacity hard drive, and that's it. For further upgrade questions and instructions, I would contact Lenovo but they may not provide much information since this model was discontinued in 2015.

Because it's an All In One PC it doesn't fit desktop parts like...a desktop does, it doesn't have the space.

Re: buying a new gpu and processor

hey I KNOW I AM FRUSTRATING U

I WILL replace MY AMD ATHLON WITH AMD A-8 7600 (IF ITS NOT SOLDERED) I HAVE  SOCKET AM3 (938)(I HAVE WATCHED AN VIDEO IN WHICH HE REPLACED THE PROCESSOR IN HIS AIO PC(FROM INTEL CORE I3 TO INTEL CORE I5)  without changing the cooling system)

FOR COOLING PURPOSES I WILL replace MY OLD FAN WITH NEW ONE AND HEAT SINK TOO

Re: buying a new gpu and processor

Good luck with that, you've been told the sockets are incompatible. Enjoy your ruined hardware. I am unfollowing this topic.

Re: buying a new gpu and processor

um heh well. if theres a slot. you may need a dremel , a pcie extension cable to hang out, some tape to stick it somewhere and a camera so we can see this build . dont forget the soldering gun and a microscope for those pins.
