No problem. This actually turned out to be more of a AOL Instant Messenge session.

Just curious but have you verified the CPU speed of your Y430 with the P8600?

 

In other words, can the Y430 motherboard BIOS support higher CPU speeds/ratios required by say,  the P9500 CPU?

The P8600 processor works just fine in my laptop. I had upgraded the original Pentium Dual Core T3200 to a P8400 which I later dumped for the P8600. I tested each processor with SuperPI. I verified that each update was in fact performing better. I also used CPU-Z to verify that they would go to the full operating speed. And in fact, the P9500 is only 0.13GHz faster and has 3MB more of L2 cache than the P8600. So you decide. I would understand if you were asking about compatability with the X9100 which is 3.06GHz with 6MB L2 Cache and a power design of 45W. Now that processor is up there with the best of them [mobile wise]. But don't be offended. I am just trying to help.

So am I right in assuming that if the BIOS/MB supports a higher processor I can upgrade a laptop cpu as long as the processor type is the same eg Micro-FCPGA? I have a 2nd Toshiba laptop with a Celeron 585 processor, if the cpu is not soldered that can be upgraded correct?

efjay - You cannnot generally state that all micro-FCPGA processors will work for the Y430. In fact Core Duo T2300s, Core 2 Duo T7400 are micro-FCPGA architecture but are Socket M processors. P8400, P9500, X9100 are Socket P processors and are of the same micro-FCPGA architecture. Not sure about the Toshiba though.

 

Just check the T2300 link and the P8400 link. It doesn't say that one is Socket M and the other Socket P [not compatible/interchangeable] but they utilize different sockets.

Just a smal update ;) I did it, I mean I swap my P7350 with P9500 and it all seems all right for now. One thing I noticed with Intel Processor Identification Utility: It shows that Intel Virtualization Technology is On, while with P7350 it showed Off. (maybe bug???)

Actually, I believe Intel revised the specifications for the P7350. Intel VT is not a supported feature with that processor. However, Intel VT is supported with the P9500.

 

Reference: P7350 vs P9500

Re: Lenovo y430 proc upgrade

Hello everyone I have some question. 

I try to upgrade CPU my Ideapad Y430; P7450 @ 2.13 GHz; 500 GB 5400 rpm HDD; 4 GB RAM, nVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS

with QX9300 @ 2.53 GHz http://ark.intel.com/products/36727/Intel-Core2-Extreme-Processor-QX9300-(12M-Cache-2_53-GHz-1066-MHz-FSB)


but after installed QX9300 when I push Power Button it's doesn't boot up but the fan is running for a few minute after that it shut off it's self. (but when I swap to P7450 it's work normally)

Is it possible problem about the power for QX9300 @ 45W ?
Is it possible to solve this and how to solve this?

Thank you.

According to the experience of the workers in Vietnam said:
Lenovo Y430 running chipset GM45 / PM45 can upgrade to the following Core 2 Duo CPUs: the P series reaches up to the maximum of P9700, the T series reaches the maximum of T9900, but they recommend stopping at T9600 or T9700 because of the stability. It is not possible to upgrade to the X9100 and QX9300 even though GM45 / PM45 is supported because of the limitations of other mainboard elements. One idea is that the Y430 can completely upgrade to Q9000 (Core 2 Quad) but I'm not sure about that.
