I decided to upgrade my old Sony VAIO VPCEH2P0E laptop’s Intel i5-2430m processor to a i7-2680qm CPU. This is the best benchmarked CPU supported by the Intel HM65 Express motherboard chipset. The i7-2680qm has 45W TDP (Thermal Design Power) which is higher than the vendor’s 35W TDP. Because of that, I had to upgrade the heatsink too.
The task was to organize a messy hardware configuration which included the server, routers, switches and all sort of devices. My goal was to install all the hardware into a single server rack. To do that, all the wiring and network cabling had to be customized to suite the new setup.
