I have an asus n53sn, windows 7 64 bit. I want to upgrade my cpu to an i7 2630QM. I was wondering if my laptops heatsink can handle it and if my laptop can give it adequate power.
Laptop CPU compatabilty will depend on your motherboard. The best thing to do is to go onto Asus's website and look up your laptop model. Once you find that you'l see a CPU compatabilty list that will tell you all the CPU's that will work with you motherboard.
Thanks for replying, according to the website, http://www.asus.com/Notebooks/Multimedia_Entertainment/..., my laptop can be ordered to have the cpu. When I bought my laptop it had the i5. I'm not sure if when someone orders if with the i7, they also get a better heat sink and power supply. Thats why I'm not sure if when I replace my i5 with the i7 I also have to replace my PCU and heat sink.
