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.

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 ?
