CPU Upgrade For HP Envy 15

December 14, 2012 5:41:44 AM

Hi everyone. I'm new to this website, I thought I'd come here and ask the experts. I have a HP Envy 15 currently with a i5-430M. I want to upgrade this to the Intel SLBLX - 1.73Ghz 2.5GT/s 8MB Intel Core i7-820QM Quad Core CPU Processor

I already called and confirmed the stock, the part is brand new, fits my budget, etc... My question is, will this be a plug and play? Or will I have to do some customizing? Also, is that CPU recommended? They have others that they said will work for my machine too, like a i7-720QM, but I wanted the i7-820QM, I just don't want to have to change other parts. This is something I plan to do myself so I don't really know what to expect. Never really upgraded my CPUs before, but I feel confident enough to try this. Any feedback or advice is appreciated. Thanks!
