I'm trying to upgrade my HP G72-150ef laptop. I already plan to upgrade the ram from 4gb to 8gb using a (2 x 4gb) kit DDR3.
But I also want to upgrade the CPU. It currently has a i3-M330 2.13Ghz and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470... i'm looking for an upgrade to the i7-640M . (which's twice faster)
Will I encounter any problems with power requirements, cooling,?
Any help would be appreciated.
Additional infos
Socket BGA1288, PGA988 (both)
Chipset HM55(both)
TDP 35W(both)
