Y510P CPU Upgrade?

Recommended Posts

My decision to buy Lenovo Y510p was guided (or misguided) by the fact that Y510P has a removable CPU, which is great! Since there are heat issues with the current CPU's that are built into it, I ws wondering would it be possible to use the Broadwell line of Intel CPUs which use much less power than Haswell based, for an upgrade of Y510p? did anyone actually upgraded their CPU in the laptop, and what are Your experiences?

Yup, it's soldered, but if you could somehow get it off just google the socket and see what other CPUs you could fit in there. Beware of the TDP limit though because the cooling system may not be able to handle a 57w processor from haswell.

This. It can't even handle a standard 47W 4700MQ as it is.
