You would have to open it up and find out as I'm not sure about replacement of the CPU. As to the second question, you would have to check the thermal paste to see if it's dried out. If it is, yeah replace it. If not, it might still be worth replacing since the thermal paste might be cheap.

thanks for asking sorry for asking the question again :D

I think it'll be fine just getting a 64GB SSD then.

The maximum amount of RAM that laptop supports is 8GB. So if you wanted to max that out, you would want 4GB*2 sticks.

You can get a cheap 64gb ssd and if the laptop has an SD port, you can get a cheap SD card and put games on that :P

If you get a decent SD card, loading times should be fine.

how could I upgrade my os to 64bit? It's currently a genuine 32bit Windows 7 os... Any way to get wi does 10 64bit without buying it all over again? If I have to buy it is there any cheap keys in places you know?

how is it maximum 8gb O.o isn't there such thing as 2x8? Or just the laptop will bottleneck or just doesn't allow it? And how much ram do you think I will use with Skype Spotify one tab on the Internet and Minecraft or csgo open.

What version of Windows 7 are you using? If you can find a 64-bit ISO of your current version of Windows, that'll work.

The laptop doesn't allow more than 8GB of RAM.

is that the best I can hope for? and is it worth it compared to the stock one as I'm just hoping to improve fps on csgo and Minecraft...

It's better than the stock one - as to the best that you can get, I'm not sure, but it may be difficult finding these for purchase in the first place anyways.

This is what load would/should look like right? Would a cooling pad do much to the heat? And i'm guessing i get performance drops due to thermal throttling correct?

I'm going to ask you to do something risky. Try running a session of AIDA64 or Prime95 on the laptop and see where the temperatures go. Be ready to close the tests if it starts to overheat.
