This is the cpu i want to put in. It says its compatible with HM55 chipsets.http://ark.intel.com/products/43127/Intel-Core-i7-940XM-Processor-Extreme-Edition-(8M-Cache-2_13-GHz)
Im hoping i can get away with not upgrading the charger which is why i want to know if the charger i currently have is sufficient or not.
The laptop currently runs at 63C - 65C max(is that too hot?) when on load. The fan out put only feels slightly warm at that temp so im thinking the heatsink could take alot more heat.
My motherboard is
manufactured by: the evil Sony Corporation
Chipset: intel Havendale/Clarkdale host bridge Rev: 02
Southbridge: intel HM55 REV:05
Brand: American Megatrends Inc
How do i check is my motherboard can support my cpu or not?
Sorry for the long post and Thnx for the help
