I've got a optiplex 9010 all in one with an i3 3240 cpu. I am wondering if I can upgrade the cpu to an i5 or i7. Not sure what will fit. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
 
The problem you run into with the AIO design is heat, so you can only use a cpu that is the same or lower tdp--luckily the i7-3770T should work if there is bios and chipset support for it:

And it seems that certain models of these AIO models also could use the i7-3770S:
