Hello! I am currently working on revamping an old HP G6 laptop as the title says. I want to change it's current i3-2350m to an i7-2620m, and according to the manual, that should work. My worry is that the heatsink/fan may need to be changed; but they're both intel chips, so can I just switch them without changing the fan & heatsink?
For anyone wondering, I am also adding in 4 gb more ram, but I don't think that's relevant. Have a great day!
