Re: Z570 CPU Upgrade

I think the Z570 Hardware Maintainence Manual would help you to find
Ishaan Ideapad Y560(i3 330m), Hp Elitebook 8460p!(i5-2520M) Hp Pavilion n208tx(i5-4200u)

Re: Z570 CPU Upgrade

Hi Ishaqwaheed,


regarding RAM upgrade of Z570, CompuRam says:

"This system can be upgraded to max. 16GB memory, there are 2 memory slots"...,Lenovo,Notebook,Ideapad+-+Z-Serie,Z570.htm


IdeaPad Z570 model use different mainboards (motherboard) and cooling systems

for dual-core and quad-core CPU, and need higher wattage AC adapter for i7 CPU,

upgrading might turn out to be very costly,

please see Z570 Hardware Maintenance Manual, page 89ff...
