6450b processor upgrade

HP probook 6450b
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)
Hi, I have an HP probook 6450b notebook laptop, when it comes to video editing for example using premier Pro or after effects. The laptop heats up and shut down if I don't put a external fans on it. So I want to upgrade my processor with a better i7 processor which can handle video editing very well. Any help

6450b processor upgrade

Hello kingpau1,

 

You would need to specify a bit further into which Core i7 you exactly have but either way, these are your options:Capture.PNG

 

 

 

 

 

 

However, I do have to inform you that you may or may not be able to upgrade the Intel Core i7-620M because it uses either the BGA1288 or PGA988 socket. 

 

I would advise opening up the laptop and ensuring it doesn't have the CPU  integrated into the motherboard.

 

Steps to replacement are located on page 107 of your computer's Maintenance and Service Guide. It will reference all other removal procedures. Please make sure to use new thermal paste.

 

Hope this helps,

Eddy

Hello kingpaul1,

 

Looks like you're in luck.:smileyhappy:

 

The Intel® Core™ i5-520M Processor can be upgraded to the Intel® Core i7-620M and it is confirmed to work in this laptop as noted in the Maintenance and Service Guide. This is the best possible one you can get for the socket. You will get an approximate 0.4 GHz higher Turbo Boost speed and an extra MB of L3 cache.

 

Steps to replacement are located on page 107. Please make sure to use new thermal paste.

 

I did find one on eBay with 5 stars rating: https://www.ebay.com/p/Intel-Core-i7-620M-2-66-GHz-Dual-Core-CP80617003981AH-Processor/80753371

 

Hope this answers your question,

Eddy
