Hello ROG forum

is there any reason why this upgraded would not work ?

My power supply that is being used is a 19v 9.5A from another bigger ROG G55.


Core i7-720QM 4 8 1.6 GHz 2.8 GHz 1MB 6MB 45W ( standard )

Core i7-840QM 4 8 1.867 GHz 3.2 GHz 1MB 8MB 45W ( desired upgrade )

You have to consider 3 things when upgrade.
1. Heat Dissipation in this case yes.
2. Sockets Supported PGA988 For both yes
3. Compatible Chipset on your Motherboard HM55 or QM57 Express Chipset if equipped then yes
