I have a X220(Core i5 2520M, 8GB RAM), he has been my companion at work for a long time, but now he its very "tired" when i need to watch a video on 720p or higher. It starts to get really hot, no crashes , just high temperature and loud cooler. I had already come here once, I was recommended to apply the thermal paste and clean with "canned air". It made him a lot better, thank you all. But even so I see that he has worrying temperatures, like 75ºC to 80ºC when watching just one stream on twitch.
Straight to the point... its worth to change my x220 (i5 2520m) to a x230(3380m) motherboard? I see Wolfgang making this in his YouTube channel. I just wanted to know, if from your experience there would be any significant changes in these questions that I mentioned earlier. Thanks.
I actually did buy a whole lower part of an X230: bottom shell and mobo, they sell some on ebay. The idea is to avoid the gap around mini-display port.. Though probably sugru would fixed it for me?..

For some, the added features (USB 3.0, proper Windows graphics driver, Vulkan support) are enough.
ATM I'm exploring this option as local sources of decently-priced X230's seem to have evaporated due to the pandemic.
