Ok, So I'm trying to open up my notebook and replace the current CPU for a faster, cooler version.
But I am having trouble removing the CPU heatsink from top of it. Anybody have a guide of a similar model so i can follow it?

Thanks!!

Is the faster cooler processor definitely supported by the notebook BIOS and chipset?

Suffice to say you are taking a huge risk with your notebook as the heatsinks are generally not meant to be removed once installed.

You risk damaging the mainboard, processor socket pins, thermal interface material and heatsink mountings even if you follow the correct procedure for removing and replacing this part.

Best to leave well alone.

I dont think changing laptop CPUs are a good idea, some of them are smelted right on to the mother board, you might want to consult Asus before doing that, what CPU is currently in it? i just got my F8sp a few weeks ago, it has a T9300, 2.5ghz cpu in it, works great
