I own a 2570P and just read, that i could upgrade its CPU a bit. But i am not completely sure, which one to get to fit properly to the socket and the peripherals in general. Could someone help me out?
My laptop has the i5-3340M installed, chipset seems to be "7 Series/C216" or QM77 (according to the hardware manager, i dont know which one applies). BIOS version is V73 Rev. A. (just upgraded).
I was going with the i7-3740QM (or 3820QM) but will it fit the socket and work in general? Do i have to make any modifications to the BIOS (or other settings) to make it work properly?
Many thanks in advance!
EDIT: Ok, i found the top post... stupid me. I will go for a 3820QM, adjust it a tad with Throttlestop and mod the heatsink slightly with some copper pads.
I have tried to find a 820 G1 Keyboard, but there are no real offers (mostly unilluminated). And i have read here, that the connectors and physical appearance do not fit properly, so i will stick to night vision goggles ^^
EDIT2: Is there any fan that is better then the stock one? I just thought about upgrading it too, but i cant find any information about the stock one to look for a better after market part...
EDIT3: So everything is on its way, i am going to glue a 2mm copper plate on the heatsink (over the complete surface, glue on the left and right side, thermal paste in the middle) and some copper shims near to the outlet.
I just wanted to add a custom boot logo but my HP_TOOLS partition is missing, And in addition i do not know which tool is necessary to recreate it. Some folks in the internet have asked the same question but the link to the HP support page is dead, so i am still clueless... Maybe someone has an image of an original driver disc around and could upload it somewhere, that would be great
