LENOVO G580 20157 Help Upgrading to hm76 chipset, mobo upgrade

So I goofed in my research apparently as the hm70 doesn't fully support iseries intel cpus. I upgraded from an Intel Pentium B960 to i7-3612qm but with the hm70 chipset it shuts off after 30 minutes. Since it is a hardware issue that i haven't found a bios/driver fix for I'd like to just upgrade to a hm76 chipset but am not having a good time figuring out what is compatible to fit in a G580 20157. Any help is greatly appreciated!!

If it shuts off after 30 minutes, it sounds like overheating, not compatibility.   Dis you clean surfaces and apply fresh thermal paste when you changed the CPU?  Did you put on too much?
