Hi All, I want to upgrade my laptops CPU to a quad core as the temps are apparently better than the dual core I currently have. If anyone has one knocking around I'd be happy to pay around £30 for it plus a few quid delivery. I don't need anything tremendous.

Let me know if you have anything.

In the interests of fairness it should be noted that this CPU sells with ease over £100 second hand, although I suspect those that dabble in the realms of upgrading such components of a laptop may well already be aware of this.

Err not sure if I am being accused of being unfair but this is not my intention. If no one wants to sell for it then that is fine but it is pointless for me to pay £100 as it would be better spent towards a new laptop!

He wasn't suggesting that you were being unfair, but that the price you were willing to pay wouldn't be enough to tempt anyone to sell such a cpu

Fair enough that is your opinion. My opinion is It is a nearly 5 year old CPU now and I don't believe the value is anywhere near £100!

I agree with you, it is silly money. But it's supply and demand that dictates the price for such cpus. I have considered selling my 3632qm because it would get me back more than half what I paid for the laptop secondhand 2 years ago.

Hi, I hope that you don't think this is thread spoiling - as I don't have one to sell.

I've just replaced my laptop (Asus K55A) processor (intel B820) with one similar to what you're looking at - I got a 3610QM though which seems to be the same socket, but possibly uses more watts that the 3612QM - please forgive me if I'm wrong!!!!

I ended up picking one up from Ebay for £70 delivered (from UK) on best offer, which seems to be a fair bit cheaper than the 3612QMs go for. I've just had a look and it looks like the cheapest (3610QM) at the moment is £89.99, but you could try going for a best offer if you don't get any other offers on here?

Also, if your laptop is anything like mine you will have to take it fully apart, videos on Youtube were definitely my friend, as were my spudgers and guitar picks!

best of luck.

Hi No problem about commenting, it always nice to hear other peoples experiences! My laptop is a generic Clevo so upgrading it is actually not too bad, the only pain if I remember right is a heatpipe which is connected to the GPU and CPU which is hard to remove without removing the GPU heatsink. You are probably thinking of the 35 or 45 watt versions, I am somewhat lucky in that it can support both although I'd prefer the lower power one as my key issue is noise not speed, I will probably just look around for broken laptops that have one in.
Hope you are enjoying the quad core!
