I want to ask if its upgradeable to i5 later on as it has i3 370M in it by stock. Is its cpu upgradeable? More about : dv6 3143us general question Best solution Anonymous a b α HP a b à CPUs a b D Laptop November 26, 2010 12:07:21 PM According to the Intel spec page: - i3-370M is 35 W, BGA 34mmx28mm package and needs PGA988 socket - i5-560M is 35 W, BGA 34mmx28mm package and needs BGA1288 or PGA988 socket So my guess is Yes and you won't even need a new fan/heat-sink... looks like i7-640M also lies in the upgrade path. Share raza715 a b D Laptop December 3, 2010 7:57:14 AM thanx for advice man, means if a laptopis i3 or i5 it canbe upgraded with any same socket dual core like i5 560m or i7 640m.
