Hello, i am looking to upgrade my laptop (Lenovo G400s, i3-3110m) with a new CPU (Core i7-3630qm). I found a listing for the new CPU at around 70US dollars (Rp.1.000.000). Is this upgrade worth the money, will this upgrade affect my gaming performance, and will i run into any potential troubles while doing the upgrade? Thanks in advance.
If the BIOS doesn’t support the cpu there is no fix.
If the cpu has heat or power issues you might be able to undervolt or/and underclock it but this is not guaranteed and may reduce any performance improvement. Unless you can find a review of someone who has done this before it is an experiment so expect it might fail.
