Lenovo V570 1066A9U: i7 Processor, 16 GB RAM & 250 GB SSD Upgrade successful!

Greetings,

 

I have had Lenovo V570 1066A9U for last 7 yrs. It came with Windows 7 Home Premium. I deleted it and installed Unix on it (but it has got nothing to do with any of the hardware upgrades I did.)

 

Old/Default configuration:

 

  1. Dual Core - Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2410M CPU 2 Cores, 4 Threads @ 2.30GHz.  (Releaseed in 2011)

  2. (4+2=) 6 GB DDR3 Samsung M471B5273CH0-CH9 RAM @ 1333 MT/s

  3. HDD

 

 

New configuration:

 

 

 

  1. 40% faster Intel I7-2820QM  8M D2 PGA CPU SR012 G2 processor 4 Cores, 8 Threads @2.30GHz (Released 2014) - FRU#: 102001055

  2. Crucial 16GB Kit (8GBx2) DDR3/DDR3L 1333 MT/s (PC3-10600) SODIMM 204-Pin Memory - CT2K8G3S1339M 

  3. SAMSUNG 250GB 860 EVO 2.5 SATA3 SSD

Nice!

 

Just a acouple of question for you...

 

  • Do you see all 16gb of memory thru BIOS and the OS installed?
  • How is the internall temperatures compared to the old CPU?
  • What thermal paste was used?

Thanks in advance.

Ans 1: Yes (see screenshots above)

Ans 2: 40-50 °C (see screenshots above)

Ans 3: I used Noctua NT-H1. I wanted to use Thermal Grizzly or IC Graphite thermal pad.

Hi ablaze,

It is my first time in the forum, sorry if not following procedures.

I was thinking to upgrade my Lenovo, thanks for the very helpfull information. 

I have the same model - V570 - 1066, same configuration. Bought it in 2012 refurbished. 

 

Year ago I formated the HDrive and without thinking I removed the partitition with Lenovo factory files. Now the computer can't shut off, just getting black screen and the fan runs on a high speed.  Can stay like that forever until I shut it off manually. Was running Windows 10, before this happened, and after.

I was thinking if you have replaced the hard drive, you may have solution for that. 

One more question: to upgrade with i7-2820QM, do I need to check the mother board, if it supports the quad CPU?

Thanks.

Hard drive:

This thread is not where you might find more info on this topic. There are other threads in this forum to discuss this. Besides, I am using UNIX, not Windows.

 

Processor:

Regarding the processor issue, yes I can say for sure that if you are using exact same laptop as mine, Then you're good to go with i7-2820QM, It would make your laptop about  40% faster.

Thanks for the info - it is good to see results from different machine types with upgrades like this.

I have an E570 that I just recently worked on, the i7 does run a bit warm in it, even with better Arctic Silver 5 on it.

Looks interesting, but not safe for my E570 - the exhaust port is on the side, the intakes on the bottom.

This unit would only cool the exhaust air, good for the room I am in but not for the CPU... (Grin).

No offense or pun intended, but this is THE funniest line I've read since I woke up. And I've been up for about 22 hours building my AI on this laptop. It looks like you saw one picture on Amazon and quickly drew a wrong judgment. It pulls hot air from the laptop, expediting the air flow.

E 570's height is about 0.90"/22.9 mm. You lost me again when you said "not safe". I'm not sure what do you mean or what makes you say it? To improve the air intake - raise the laptop from the surface, using a ventilated stand. If I were you, I'd get a stand broad enough to have space for a vacuum fan. If you didn't know - TJUNCTION for Intel® Core™ i7-2820QM Processor is 100 C. (Junction Temperature is the maximum temperature allowed at the processor die.

 

If you're profiling the temperature on your laptop, how hot does it get?

 

If none of above helped, maybe this helps:
