Re: G510 - CPU Upgrade

Hi abroshan,

 

Welcome to the Community FOrums.

 

From the CPU list of the hardware manual (item8 page 22), available Intel I5-3230M is G2 socket so it would be better getting i7-4700MQ with the same G3 socket as your i3-4000M similar to this discussion.

 

Hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Re: G510 - CPU Upgrade

Hi,

 

I am using a lenovo G510 laptop with i3-4000M CPU 2.4GHz processor. I wanted to know whether I could upgrade the cpu to an i7-4610M. Will this be supported by my motherboard.

 

I saw some article in google that it will support but wanted to confirm with the experts before I bought the processor. Please help....!!

 

Thanks & Regards Roshan

Re: G510 - CPU Upgrade

Hi abroshan

 

Greetings.

 

Upgrade to i7-4610M is not included on the whitelisted CPU for the machine.

It may have the same socket and with same characteristics but we cannot guarantee functionality.

 

i7-4700MQ is listed as compatible CPU and confirmed by fellow members of smooth upgrade.

 

Regards
