Hey im looking into upgrading my processor (AMD C-50 socket type FT1 BGA 413-Ball) in my Aspire 5250-BZ643. And I was wondering if an AMD E Series E-350 processor would fit in the socket despite it being a FT1 BGA 413 socket and not a FT1 BGA 413-Ball. I also found one that is an AMD E Series E-450 Processor that has the FT1 BGA 413-Ball socket so it should fit but would my computer run with any problems with the hardware upgrade? Also what is a good website that i should purchase the processor from? and if you have any other suggestions of processors that i should use please let me know.
Thanks for the help,
-Divide100.

We are talking about a laptop correct? If the socket type does not match, then it will not work. And even if its the same socket the BIOS has to support it, and you have to be very careful replacing it laptops are very difficult to take apart and replace. I cannot venture a safe guess as to whether either of those CPUs will work or not, the best way to know for sure is to contact ACER customer support and ask them for a CPU support list, it is what I would do if I was in your shoes.

I have an Acer Iconia W500 tablet with an AMD C-50 in socket type FT1 BGA 413-Ball. The BIOS supports both AMD C-50 and the AMD C-60 which provides some (20%)performance increase. Would really enjoy the added performance and have found an AMD C-60; but some say that the "Ball" in the socket type means that the C-50/60 are actually soldered into the socket with "balls" of solder rather than pinned.

Anyone care to comment?

with tablets, Id almost bet money that that is indeed what it means that its sodered. Though, I should say this-its considered proper forum etiquette if you have a question to start a new thread instead of hijacking another one.
