hi
i want to replace laptop cpu from i5 to i7. Same model is sold with i7
the socket is same - FCPGA988 , but TDP is different. 35w vs 45w
Also on Asus website it written that I7 coming with more watt charger.
90w vs 120w
Detalis : i5-3210m to i7 3630QM .
Model : Asus N56VJ-s4143h
Will it be enough to change a charger ?
the I7 model i think 0.1 is higher than i5 model..is it really matter?

The power connection in the laptop will match the power brick. This is why you don't use other peoples power cables. You need to do some research and find out WHY it had a beefier PSU and i doubt it was just the CPU that caused it. The i7 was likely shipped with a beefier GPU and/or display as well.

Also research if anyone has done this upgrade and if the cooler is sufficient. With the age of the system, they odds are that someone has done this, assuming it's possible.

35w to 45w is not a lot really, but you have to confirm the cooler can handle the increased heat.

There are many things to look into for an upgrade like this:
CPU socketed, not soldered
CPU wattage
CPU FSB frequency matches current
CPU cooling solution compatible
BIOS are the latest version to give the best possibility for compatibility


I recommend using Arctic MX-4 if/when you replace the thermal paste. It works nicely for CPU's and GPU's.
