Alienware m11x r2 socket 989 rpga processor upgrades?

March 5, 2013 1:37:36 PM

Hello all,

I am planning to upgrade my alienware m11x r2's cpu. currently running a stock i7 640um.

according for cpu-z, the mainboard has a socket 989 rpga (which I believe is not the soldered bga 1288) and can have the cpu replaced.

I am thinking about an i7 660LM, taking into account of the chipset support and also the processor's TDP.

can anyone confirm that this upgrade is indeed possible before I spend like another 200 or 300 bucks?

thanks in advance ^^
