Title:

Help upgrading CPU on my iMac, any ideas? It's old

Text:

I would like to upgrade the CPU in my system,

the specs are below in the screenshots. I don’t mind spending money on the CPU. I like the system because it is vintage, I am a collector of this generation apple products and I like to keep the usable in modern day, I know the bus speed is not high but I don’t mind on the motherboard.

I am aware of risk, I am a technician so it does not bother me. I already replaced the LCD and the motherboard. (Just saying, future LCD’s are compatible with this device if you’re creative ;) )

Does anybody know any CPU’s that will work? Thanks

I’m also changing the RAM to its actual cap of 16gb
