    JuanRodriguez

      Hello, my name is Juan, I'm new here

       

      I found this processor

       

      Amazon.com: Intel CPU BX80617I5580M Mobile Core i5-580M 2.66GHz 3MB FCPGA10 Socket 988 2Core/4Threads Retail: Computers & Accessories

       

      And I'm interested, but I don't know if it's compatible with my HP Pavilion dv7-4077cl (P/N WQ363UAR#ABA), this is the processor I have now

      Thank you

          Hello Juan, please allow me to help you with your question.

           

          In regards of compatibility information we usually rely on the motherboard and system manufacturers to maintain such information because their testing requires the use of our processors (and not vice-versa). In the case of replacement/upgrade of Intel® Mobile Processors we highly encourage to consult with the system manufacturer because even if the same socket and TDP is used the system BIOS may not support the microcode of the new processor.

           

          It is also necessary to note that some of these socket types were designed to make the integration permanent since the processors are soldered into the board.
