hello i have dell xps l502x came with core i7-2670qm but replaced it with core i7-2960xm so is this cpu fully compatible with my board and here are some info's (hm67 huron river ,, phoenix securecore tiano) please help me before i damage my m.b cuz im working on it now and thanks alot
The TDP is 10 watts more than the original chip. It should be compatible, but it's debatable if you will see any improvement in most tasks. Your computer isn't going to feel any "faster" web browsing or word processing.
dell said we havent test this cpu with this laptop so we dont know if it is compatible so how do i know im really lost if i would know earlier i sure wont but it but the problem is i paid alot and i cant return it so please ay info will be helpfull
