i have an acer aspire timelinex 5820T notebook and i want to upgrade the stock processor with a new more powerful. The stock processor is the intel core i3-330M
and i want to replace them with the intel core i7 720QM 1.6-2.8Ghz or the intel core i5 520M 2.4Ghz but the problem is if they can fit in the mother board do you have any suggestions
The compatible processors with the Intel® Core™ i3-33M are the following. They need the same type of cooling solution and they have the same type of socket PGA988.
It is necessary to verify with Acer support if these processors are recognized by the BIOS of your motherboard.
In regards the Intel® Core™ i7-720QM, the socket is equal; however, it requires a better cooling solution in your laptop.
