    OEM or Retail (Boxed) i7-840QM for Dell M6500 laptop ?



      I need to replace the CPU in my M6500 laptop and I was wondering if there are any physical differences between the OEM and Retail (boxed) versions of Core i7-840QM Mobile processor. Some of the images that I’ve seen of the  i7-840QM display a metallic cover whereas my CPU doesn’t have that because the heatsink sits on top of the CPU in M6500.
