Current computer: Plan to replace the ASRock Intel Celeron with a faster processor.
- 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 what have Windows 8 installed? asrock supports w7, w8x and w10 on this board.
