Does anyone here know, would it be possible to upgrade a CPU in a laptop given the CPU's are the same socket? What things other than cooling requirements would one have to take into account when trying to do this?
I have had a look on the Intel website at their mobile processors and have noted that the Ivy Bridge CPUs are either FCBG1023 or FCPGA988... Would my assumption that if I were to buy a laptop with an Ivy Bridge CPU say an i3-3229Y (Socket: FCBGA1023) that theoretically (if removing a soldered CPU werent a problem, if the heat could be managed and not in fear of voiding warranty ) that I could put any other CPU of the same socket in its place? say an i5 or i7?!?
I think you can, but i'm no expert myself
