The Southbridge is Intel HM65 (rev. 05)

 

BIOS is Lenovo 44CN43WW

 

The current CPU is the Intel Pentium B960 (2.20GHz)

Re: Processor upgrade for Lenovo V570

hi razvyslim,

 

Welcome to the Forums.

 

Your problem might be similar to this thread.

 

From page 77-78 of the hardware maintenance manual (HMM), the V570 can take up to:

 

Intel I7-2820QM 2.30G 8M 4c D2 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001055
Intel I7-2720QM 2.20G 6M 4c D2 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001071
Intel I7-2630QM 2.0G 6M 4c D2 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001070
Intel I7-2620M 2.7G 4M 2c J1 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001069
Intel I5-2540M 2.6G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001068
Intel I5-2520M 2.5G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001067
Intel I5-2410M 2.3G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001066
Intel I3-2310M 2.1G 3M 2c J1 PGA processor - FRU#: 102001065

 

Since you have a dual core CPU, the Intel I7-2620M should be the highest CPU that your motherboard can take.

 

The Quad Core CPUs (I7-2630QM, I7-2720QM, and I7-2820QM) uses a different motherboard (see page 77 of the HMM) so I wouldn't try these CPUs as they're unlikely compatible to your motherboard or worse, may end up frying your board due to the heat that these CPUs are producing.

 

 

Regards

I do not believe Lenovo Employee neokenchi. I am rocking Intel I7 2820QM (Specifically - Intel Core i7-2820QM 2.3GHz 8M Socket G2 Laptop Processor CPU SR012), from my Lenovo V570.

If you look closely at the listing supplied you will see the i7 2820QM is the first CPU listed... What is not to believe here?

 If the original poster is using V570 1066A9U, I do not believe the following:

The Quad Core CPUs (I7-2630QM, I7-2720QM, and I7-2820QM) uses a different motherboard (see page 77 of the HMM) so I wouldn't try these CPUs as they're unlikely compatible to your motherboard or worse, may end up frying your board due to the heat that these CPUs are producing.

Re: Processor upgrade for Lenovo V570

The difference is the main board (system board) used in various configurations.  This would be impossible to fully predict exactly what will or wont work without the MTM number and a look up of the exact system board used.

 

Some differences would include but are not limited to sockets, chipsets and attached support boards.

I am also on Lenovo Emerald Lake (FAB1), for my V570. I don't think there's much left to argue here, I know for the fact that i7 2820 QM works, I am using it. Smiley Tongue
