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.
