Hi jbiko66,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Similar to the discussion here, the hardware manual (page 101 item 11) list the supported CPU possible for your upgrade.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Hi jbiko66

 

Greetings.

 

Checking with the Intel site for I7-3612QM socket supported is FCPGA988 under package specs. This would be for the OEM PN 102500290 (Intel I7-3612QM 2.1G E1 6M 4cPGA Processor).

Re: Lenovo G580 CPU Upgrade

Okay, so I was searching a bit and found this 

 

Intel Core i5-3360M 2.8Ghz 3Mb Cache Socket G2 sr0mv

 

Will this processor work? And what do i have to do? Is it just to put it in and boot up or i have to do other things? Like update BIOS?

 

Regards!

Re: Lenovo G580 CPU Upgrade

Hi jbiko66,

 

As listed from the hardware manuali5-3360M is among the listed CPU for the model. It may not need any BIOS upgrade but upgrading it would be better before placing it in if needed. Reading the BIOS txt file may be helpful is such version is neccessary.

 

If this would be the specific to PN 102500297 Intel I5-3360M 2.8G L1 3M 2cPGA then we can be sure of the upgrade. In buying 3rd party parts , checking return options is still advised.
