Push 3 Upgradability with Third-Party Parts

While it is technically possible to upgrade Push 3 components with third-party parts, using parts that aren’t from Ableton could be hazardous and will void your warranty. We cannot guarantee that any third-party parts will be fully compatible with Push.

It is necessary to have all of the following four standalone components either installed or removed for your Push to work. 


Two thermal pads can easily be damaged and should be replaced if damaged: 

  • Between the heatsink and backplate
  • Between the backplate and processor

Without the thermal pads, the processor can get hot very quickly and start reducing the overall performance of the Push.

Note: Do not turn your Push on if you only have some parts installed or the backplate hasn’t been screwed on properly.

  • Intel® 11th Gen Core™ i3-1115G4 processor with 8GB of RAM.
  • Intel® NUC Compute Element features a processor, RAM memory, and WiFi. 

Information and tips to consider: 

  • The chip's BIOS settings must be configured properly; this is not a "plug-and-play" upgrade scenario.

  • 256GB SSD hard drive

Information and tips to consider: 

  • The new SSD needs to be flashed with the Push 3 standalone software.

Note: Ableton’s warranty doesn’t cover any damage resulting from improper testing, operation, maintenance, installation, or any alteration or modification. 

In the future, buying individual components from Ableton.com, including a battery and more powerful processors, may be possible.
