The socket is supported. But I don't know if your motherboard will. You will need to check that the BIOS has an updated recent enough that surpasses the release of the L305 processor.

Agreed. You should know that there are risks to attempting a CPU upgrade on laptops.

And I do know theres risks but these laptops I don't even need to use anymore so this is just a sideproject.
