    Hello,
    I plan to eventually upgrade my processor to the new AMD A10-4600M. I love my laptop, but I sometimes have trouble when it comes to cooling. I was wondering if I should buy a better fan for my processor when I upgrade it then what is stock.

    Thanks

    Most laptop CPU's cannot be upgraded. In most cases, it's a waste of time, anyway, since it runs pretty much the same after an upgrade. The speed of a machine depends on a lot more than the CPU.

    Laptop fans are NOT universal or something you can just buy off the shelf. The fan/cooling you have now is pretty much the best it'll be without going for an external solution.

    Do you have any confirmation from the laptop manufacturer that their system will support a new processor? Very few manufacturers release BIOS updates to add support for new/future processors unless they plan on re-using that exact system with the new processor and thats not always possible due to power consumption and heat that a new processor may bring.
