Lenovo Y520 Motherboard replacement.

I was wondering about my laptop upgrade, far as i know, you simply cant upgrade GPU and CPU in my laptop. (These parts are soldered to my MB). But the thing i saw, that there are same laptop models, with different cpu's and gpu's. So it is possible to change motherboard, with different CPU and GPU for my laptop? I saw there are motherboards on Y520 with an I7 7700HQ cpu and GTX 1060 3GB GPU.

My laptop spec :
I5 7300HQ @2.5GHz (4T/4C)
Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050 (2GB version)
16GB DDR4 Samsung 2400MHz dual channel RAM
Samsung 960 EVO M.2 NVMe SSD
Seagate 1TB Hard drive

Re: Lenovo Y520 Motherboard replacement.

You can totally do it, but there are countless problems you could encounter and you should know what you're doing. You'll have to dismantle more than just the back-plate to take out the mother board. Even if you do that process the laptop might not boot up properly if you use the same boot drive.
