T520 what is the best heatsink that will work well with an i7 2960xm and fit in a T520 integrated gr

2017-07-03, 21:41 PM

I have had this laptop for a few months now. I am planning to upgrade the processor. I'm really just looking for a fan/heatsink to combat it's insane heat. Is there even a powerful enough fan, if so will it withstand OC for longer amounts of time. Even 24 hours. Help.

I don't have one to look at, but the fans on the W520 models were different (larger).  I don't think the W520 fans will fit on the integrated graphics board/frame.  I seem to remember that the fan's electrical connection (plug) was also different.
