T430s CPU Upgrade possible?

#1 Post by Chronoculars » Mon Aug 07, 2017 10:53 am

I saw online that you could upgrade a T420 with an aftermarket quad-core i7, and I wondered if my T430s was capable of a similar process, since 4 cores would be quite nice.

My current processor is a Core i5 3320M @ 2.60 GHz.

Not possible, the T430s has its CPU soldered onto the mobo.
