Processor upgrade on Lenovo Legion Y520T-25IKL (2017)

2020-07-07, 21:04 PM

Hi there.

I have a Lenovo Legion Y520T-25IKL, with a i3-7100 processor in it. I was wondering if is possible to switch it to an i5-7400 or i7-7700 without too much hassle?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Ben.

Hi,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

You can use your serial number here in the parts look up page to identify the systemboard among the commodity list. The hardware manual shows (page 45)the sytemboard and tested GPU (page 48) recommended for the model.

 

For the CPU, PN 01AG096 Intel Core i7-7700 3.6G 4C is suggested.

 

Other probable GPU upgrades aside from those listed in the manual has not been tested yet for the machine and we don't have that much upgrade confirmations yet among our community members. Similar discussion here

 

I hope this helps answer your query.
