i have started modding my L420.. absolutely love this machine it keeps up with my new l480 thinkpad that has a 8th gen intel cpu...
i was going to go with the i7-2630QM , 4 core 8 thread cpu which is a 45 w TDP
the machine comes with a i5 35W TDP.. i have been reading and alot of people have done the 45w I7-2630 QM mod and temps have been ok.
im thinking of going for a 55W TDP i7-2920XM it has a faster clock rate and a bigger cache ...
i will buy the L412 heatsink and fan apparently it is larger.
i going to add a extra fan within the other board and add a extra external fan/blower on the outside of the case ( sunon mighty mini),
im wondering if anyone has ever done a 55w CPU in a 35w tdp rated laptop.
also wondering if anyone has come across a fan that fits in the express card slot.
