I have two of these computers: https://support.hp.com/ca-en/document/c02833607 One currently has an i3-2100 and one has an i3-2120 and I know someone selling a few older chips. I was wondering since they are both LGA 1155, would I be able to put the newer generation CPU such as an i5-3570 or an i7-3770 (both seem to also be LGA 1155) into the motherboard without any problems? Or will it be similar to the coffee lake issue on modern Z370 boards where you need to flash the board first? Any insight would be helpful, i'm not entirely sure how it all works so i'd like to know before I break anything. Thanks!
