GT683DX upgrade CPU and GPU

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for best possible CPU and GPU upgrade to my GT683DX notebook.  I noticed that the best CPU is the  i7-2920XM.  Is this correct?  And is it plug and play or would I need the unlocked bios to use it?

 

And is the 970m the best video card?

 

Thanks in advance!

After doing some digging around, I found most of my own answers.  GTX 980m is the best video card and i-7 2960xm is the best cpu for this notebook.

 

Upgrading to those two would cost me almost $600.  At that upgrade cost, I'm thinking it's better to just get a new gaming notebook.

Hi mechguy!

   Did you finally guess if a unlocked bios is necesary for a only CPU upgrade?

 

 

About CPU upgrading...A NVIDIA GTX675M from DELL like this (https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Alienware-M17X-R4-M18X-NVIDIA-Geforce-GTX675M-2GB-Video-Card-HXD3N-74W4GT/161884140859) will "be plug´n play" in a GT683R with a GTX560m? Will it need anything more than new thermal paste?

 

Thank you in advance!

Cześć mechguy!

   Czy w końcu domyślasz się, czy odblokowany bios jest niezbędny do uaktualnienia tylko procesora?

 

 

Informacje o ulepszaniu procesora ... NVIDIA GTX675M firmy DELL w ten sposób ( https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Alienware-M17X-R4-M18X-NVIDIA-Geforce-GTX675M-2GB-Video-Card-HXD3N- 74W4GT / 161884140859 ) będzie "być plug'n play" w GT683R z GTX560m? Czy będzie potrzebować czegoś więcej niż nowej pasty termicznej?

 

Z góry dziękuję!

NVIDIA GTX 675M from DELL works fine with the GT683 as plug and play, you only need to modify the driver to run at full performance.

Hi, guys.

I have GT683R now and want to make an upgrade too.
In my plans changing heatsink to GT60 (with GPU-to-CPU copper pipe) + 0.65A fan instead 0.36A stock + GTX 970M 6Gb (stock Clevo P770 version) + 2x8Gb 2133Mhz DDR3 HyperX Impact modules (ofc after unlocking BIOS) + CPU upgrade to 2820QM or 2860QM, because i dont want to abuse cooling system hard or overclock CPU.

And another moment - i have 16F2 mobo from GT680R and will try to replace HM67 to HM77. Will post separate topic about this ;)
