Default Processor Docking Bay

Is it possible to change the docking bay on the motherboard for a upgrade in the processor? If so where is this hardware available.

What do you mean by docking bay? You mean the socket for the processor?

Unfortunately, sockets are soldered to the motherboard, which means that you must buy a new one if you want to upgrade to a processor that uses a different socket. If you want to upgrade your processor but want to keep the motherboard, find one that's compatible with your socket and look for it. Newegg.com's search filters should help.
