Note that the AiO uses a 3.5" HDD. To replace it with an SATA SSD you will need a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter.

For the ram you will need DDR3 SO-DIMM like used in notebooks and not desktop DIMMs.

That won't work. The i7 860 will surely not be recognized as the AiO is only meant for i5 650 and uses a very limited oem board. Also an i7 860 exceeds the thermal and power limts of this compact AiO pc by far.

No, that just covers the chipset not the individual mainboard and system. H55 chipset can support the cpu depending on the mainboard. As said the Aio uses a very limited oem board that is only made to support one and only cpu model. Also an i7 860 exceeds the thermal and power limts of this compact AiO pc by far.

thank you for information. I ask a one question. Is i5 680 cpu competible for AE2420?

It is a dual core with same tdp at least but can't tell if the board's bios will cover it. The only ever cpu meant for the system is i5-650 and MSI offered no other cpu option. For just 400 Mhz extra I wouldn't risk it. Performance upgrade would be minimal.
