Gigabyte GA-P31-S3G

Hello,

A friend of mine has Gigabyte GA-P31-S3G with a very slow CPU. He wants to upgrade to something like i3 and I can't find anywhere is i3 processor compatible with his motherboard. I found a few lists where it says that his motherboard is compatible with Core 2 Quad but they haven't been updated for years.

These are the official specs for his motherboard http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2676#ov

Any help is much appreciated.

  1. No his board is not compatible with I3. I3 is in two versions LGA1156 and newest LGA1155. His board is LGA775 the best you can do that does not cost an arm and a leg is going with 3+GHz Pentium Dual core like these http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007671%20600005851%20600005665%20600005583&IsNodeId=1&name=Pentium
    Other wise a full upgrade would be in order.
  2. Ah, alright. At least now we know what to do. Thanks for your reply!
