Hi guys,
I am a newbie here.
I have a mid 2011 iMac 2.5Ghz Quad core i5 with High Sierra.
Can you please advise on whether I can upgrade from an i5 to i2600s CPU and anything I need to take into account including if I need a different heatsink?
Thanks

Moved to iMac forum.

This is a site for those that install Apple operating systems onto non-Apple hardware, your question may be better addressed elsewhere on one of the many Apple support sites.

Hi! If you have 21.5 inch iMac you can easily upgrade to i7 2600s. If yours is 27 inch your choice is standard i7 2600. Heatsink is fine just change cpu and you are good to go!
