I have had a 2540p for a few years.


Browsing the net I found this site and have ordered a HP 2570p as an upgrade.


Whilst its an I7 I have ordered a I7-3630QM as I assume it will be an upgrade.


What thermal paste do you recommend?


And what thermal upgrades should I do whilst the bottom is off?


Cheers. Andrew.

There's a lot you can upgrade in this machine. CPU, RAM, SSD. Keep in mind that quad core processors will require a cooling upgrade. A good thermal paste is not going to be enough. Check the owners thread for details. But for a time being you could set max CPU power to 99% in the power settings, that disables turbo boost.
