    G53SW-XA2 CPU upgrade - compatibility

    Hi Guys,

    After almost 3 years of using the G53 time has come to disassemble, clean and repaste and I thought that maybe I should also upgrade the CPU. As currently I have i5-2410M on board my choice went to i7-2630QM but I would like to ask you for the advice if it is worth to change it and moreover is it going to fit the motherboard that I'm using?

    I did some digging and I'm a little bit confused as the Intel's webpage shows that these two CPU are using different sockets
    but www.cpu-world.com says something completely different.

    Asus had few G53 models with i7-2630QM on board so I'm wondering if the motherboard was also different than in G53s with i5-2410M.

    Please let me know if I should provide any additional details.

    I would be really grateful for your help.

    You will have no problems with 2630qm.Only dont waste your money on XM series as you wont get turbo boost.
