Current computer: Plan to replace the ASRock Intel Celeron with a faster processor.

 

Items considered:

- Current motherboard plan, must be mini-ITX: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAD7H5EW9619&cm_re=9SIAD7H5EW9619_i7_mini-ITX_SO_... ASRock H81TM-ITX R2.0 LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com

 

- Must be low temperature (at best, 35W), or if not, cooling items must fit inside this Commodore 64x.

- Must allow: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0076W9Q4Q/ CMSX8GX3M1A1600C10 Vengeance 8GB (1x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory- 1.5V

Oh thanks. Very useful. Hoping the one I picked doesn't have Windows 8 installed.

Now I have to find which ones are DDR3 1600 compatible (RAM in link) then narrow it.

If there's a better motherboard that's different, I'd like to know.

I don't aim for a reinstallation, just a swap.

If the motherboard supports the ram, and the motherboard bios supports those processors, you should have no trouble selecting a processor.

And, you may want to sort by "power" if heat is a concern.

And, make sure the bios meets the minimum level. You may want to update the bios with the old processor first.

Does that have Windows 8 installed? I hope not because it might get in the way of my migration.

Ah wait, nvm I forgot that this one doesn't have a OEM OS.

Would a fan work if I already have an existing fan on the case? Or should I get a heatsink?

Hi bhl88,

 

 

The board manufacturer determines if the system requires a dedicated heatsink and fan for the processor. The board requires additionally, holes on the board to attach the heatsink and fan.

It will take time. Shipping takes until August.

A 35 W should work in a constrained space.

Raju, again I warn you. You can only use a processor if it is supported by the BIOS. So, your list is worthless without this knowledge.
