Upgrade CPU laptop

Pavilion g6-2320sl 2012
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I have an old laptop, hp pavillion g6-2320sd 2012.

I'd like to give it a new life and upgrade ram, add an SSD and upgrade CPU.

Ibelieve upgrading ram and SSD should be a simple task.

I am worried about changing the CPU.. will a better CPU overheat and potentially perform worse ? 

Should I change the motherboard aswell ?

Thanks

You have provided two product names, perhaps inadvertently.

g6-2320sd and g6-2320sl

 

Which one is yours?

I can find no information on the g6-2320sd.

 

If it is the g6-2320sl:

Processor (includes replacement thermal material):

AMD A10-4600M processor (3.2 GHz/2.3 GHz, 1600 MHz/4 MB L2 cache,DDR3, quad core, 35W)  hp p/n 683046-001

AMD A8-4500M processor (2.8 GHz/1.9 GHz, 1600 MHz/4 MB L2 cache, DDR3,quad core, 35W)     hp p/n 683048-001

AMD A6-4400M processor (3.2 GHz/2.7 GHz, 1600 MHz/1 MB L2 cache, DDR3,dual core, 35W)   683047-001

AMD A4-4300M processor (3.0 GHz/2.5 GHz, 1600 MHz/1 MB L2 cache, DDR3,dual core, 35W    685990-001

I highlighted the appropriate processors in green. The only advantage of these is that they are quad processors. There is not much clock speed advantage. For best results only consider using processors with the appropriate HP part number seen at the end of the processor specification lines above.

 

Upgrading to a SATA 2.5" notebook SSD  and memory modules would be pretty straightforward, although only up to 8 GB is supported by the BIOS.

Thanks a lot! Yes, it is indeed the sl not sd, my bad. Do you think the AMD A10-4 600M will make the laptop overheat ?

No.

 

It would not be the cause of overheating.

 

The AMD A10-4 600M is the same wattage (35W) as the one it would be replacing.
