Hello my name is Rosislav, I want to clarify a certain question:
I want to replace my processor ...
Laptop Model: Lenovo Z500 (A)
Processor: Mobile DualCore Intel Core i3-3120M, 2500 MHz.
Motherboard chipset: Intel Panther Point HM76, Intel Ivy Bridge.
Board ID: <DMI>
Stepping CPU: E1 / L1 / N0 / P0

Can you advise me which is better to put the processor, and is it suitable?
And can I put the processor more than the Core i7-3520M

Hi RostKey,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Similar to the discussion here, I think you can get the i7 3632QM as the best 35W Ivy Bridge CPU.


From the hardware manual shows OEM listed CPU for your machine (item8 page 94-95).


I hope this helps answer your query.
