The fellow selling the QX9300 specifically states that it will work in the Asus G71, but would it work in the G72? The G72 is a pretty big laptop and has a decent cooling system in it, with a good laptop cooler would heat still be a problem?
This is what I'm planning, I'm planning on putting a 120GB SSD in it & upgrading my RAM to 12GB (maxing it out). I was looking at possibly upgrading the GPU, but I guess Asus uses an oddball MXM board. So that leaves me with the CPU, which I know can be upgraded to the Q9000, but was concerned with the low clock speed. I basically just want to breath new life into my G72 to boost it's performance to the max.
