Hi, I was wondering if it's possible to upgrade a G46VW with an i5-3230M to an i7-3610QM? I already have an i7-3610QM, but the laptop it's in has started overheating, so I'm looking at a G46VW.

Yes you can, but you will need to take some time to open the laptop. The two CPUs are for the same socket so it shouldn't be too much of a problem. I upgraded my i5 to a 3630qm with no issues. Just make sure you connect everything properly and you should be fine.
