More about : rpga989 upgrade Timop a b à CPUs June 25, 2011 12:13:44 PM I don't see a reason it won't, its the same TDP and series. Disassembly would be a pain and warranty should be voided though, turbo might also be compromised. soso81 June 25, 2011 12:52:50 PM i found that the difference between i3-330M and i5-580M is turbo boost witch is disable on i3-330M but enable on i5-580M . Could i do a bios update ? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
