Hi, Im upgrading my CPU and want to know if it's possible to use the Xeon 1231v3 in the Inspiron 3847. My current CPU is i3-4150.
Doubtful. The BIOS probably isn't programmed to accept it and i'm not sure the chipset is capable of utilizing a Xeon. Xeon processors generally use business or industrial class chipsets from intel
There are Likely Physical Barriers to getting the Xeon into the Core I3 socket.
Then there are pins that have to be swapped via flex circuit Just like the 771 to 775 mod.
So in general No its not going to work.
