Hi there people,

I'm wandering if there's a possibility of upgrading the i5 3230m that's currently in my Satellite Pro C850-1H8.
Looking at the options available on the socket FCPGA988 and the Intel HM70 chipset there seems to be a variety of the i7's available for use.
Does the laptop support CPUs with a greater max TDP than 35w?
Also does the bios support any of the CPU upgrade options?

Cheers, Nick

Even if you are able to swap processors and the bios does support it, you will still run into a heat issue with the faster processor.
