  • NP5793 CPU Upgrade

    Would I be able to upgrade the CPU in the NP5793 myself?

    I am curious as I am making the move from the desktop world and I am used to being able to upgrade components myself. Also I hate paying for the bleeding edge in procs and would rather just upgrade down the road if possible.

    Thanks for any help on this.

    The CPU on the NP5793 is user upgradeable... basically it is not soldered to the motherboard. If you have replaced a desktop CPU before, this would not be much more complicated. though it might get kinda messy if you opt for the artic silver
