Upgrade CPU of a HP Envy 17-j115eg TouchSmart Leap Motion

Hello,

 

I own a HP Envy 17-j115eg TouchSmart Leap Motion  and I'd like to upgrade the CPU from a i7-4702MQ to a i7-4800MQ or even to a i7-4900MQ. Is that possible without having any incompatibility issues?

Thank you! :smileyhappy:

Hey i have the same question. Is there any answer?

 

I've found that a 4700mq is in the 17t-j003 Envy Laptop... so the TDP should not be a problem or not?

I'd recommend you to get a 4800MQ try it and send it back if it doesn't work. (IDK what the return polities are in the U.S.A. but in Germany you can return everything for 14 days.) Anyway I don't really care anymore because I recently got myself a Gaming-PC with an i7-4790K so my processor shouldn't be a problem anymore. :smileywink:

The Problem should not be to sent the 4800mq back.. what happens with my Envy?? That is more important. It's not cheap :smileyhappy: so its a problem. Or do you send me yours free? :smileywink:

What could possibly happen? The only thing I could imagine happening is the power brick not providing enough energy but I don't think the power brick couldn't provide 10 W more. But because mine is scratched I cant see how high it's wattage is. So could you plz tell me?
