  1. 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.
  2. ^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.
