    Upgrading to a Compatible CPU


      Hi, I have a laptop mobile CPU I want to upgrade, but I just don't know which one works and compatible and which isn't.

      I've taken the laptop apart before but the only problem is that I don't know what CPU would work on it and which socket it is.

      My Specifications:

      CPU: Intel Core i3 2370m

      iGPU: Intel Graphic HD 3000

      HDD: 500gb

      RAM: 8gb (I installed 4gb extra myself).

      My laptop is an Samsung NP300E5C-A07US

      Also, the CPU isn't integrated onto the motherboard.

      If you can also tell me what the package size is:

      37.5mm x 37.5mm (rPGA988B); 31mm x 24mm (BGA1023)

      I think one of them is integrated.
