    HM67 support for gen 3

    Enthusiast

      Hello,

       

      so i've got Dell XPS 17 l702x (See the summary in a photo below)

      As you can see, i have Intel Core i5 2430M @ 2.40GHz.

      Here's the info of my motherboard:

      ManufacturerDell Inc.
      Model0K4H3G (CPU)
      VersionFAB1
      Chipset VendorIntel
      Chipset ModelSandy Bridge
      Chipset Revision09
      Southbridge VendorIntel
      Southbridge ModelHM67
      Southbridge RevisionB3
      BIOS
      BrandDell Inc.
      VersionA19
      Date2012.09.07

       

      Here's the thing, i would like to get i5-3210m cpu instead of i5-2430m(installed right now).
      CPU's can be changed, but can my motherboard and BIOS support that Ivy bridge processor?
