Step 1: Buy said i5 processor, likely i5 760.
Step 2: Remove i3 from motherboard CPU socket.
Step 3: Place i5 into motherboard CPU socket.
Step 4: Sell i3 CPU on ebay.
Step 5: Well your pretty much done.

^Or Substitute Step 4 to "Ship CPU to Timop." lol.

But on a serious note, you'll have to remove and replace the HSF. You'll have to turn the push pins according towards the arrow and pull.
