Can I upgrade Dell 660 i5-3330 to i7-3770? I asked Dell Techs, they say Dell 660 support i7s, but not tested, would not recommend upgrading.

Do I just replace the CPU, anything else I need to do/adjust.

Thx

Hello jzli1998... I am looking to do the same thing ~ did you pull-the-trigger?
If so, how did it all work out and did you run any tests to see what performance gain you achieved by the upgrade?

Look forward to any comments you may have.

According to http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i7-3..., i7-3770 is about 55% faster than i5-3330, and i7-4770 is only about 8% faster than i7-3770 but in different socket, so I guess it would be worthwhile to upgrade to i7-3770


How did this work out "jzli1998" ~ I have the same system and would like to do the same.
