Add an extra CPU to my W520

Hi all,


I was wondering if it is possible to add an extra cpu to my W520. I am thinking to add Intel  Core i7 i7 2600S 2.80. So, is it possible to do this


Any helps would be really appreciated.

Re: Add an extra CPU to my W520

Extra as in additional? That's not possible without some rather serious modification to the motherboard and cooling system. Also, the 2600S is a desktop CPU, which would require even more extensive modification to make work in a mobile system.

Short answer: no, it's not possible. In order to do it, you'd need to design and fabricate your own system.
Thinkpad W530, i7-3720QM, 1920x1080 screen, 32GB RAM, dual SSDs (Samsung 830, Crucial M4 mSATA), Quadro K2000M, 9-cell battery, DVD burner, backlit keyboard, Bluetooth, Intel 6300 wireless card
