Hi all,

 

I have ripped apart my old laptop (Asus a53e) and recovered what I believe is a i7-2670qm cpu and 6gb mobile ram. 

 

Anyone aware of whether I could use these components with any kind of motherboard? preferably a small mini itx solution?

 

I wonder if this will actually save me money or if I am dreaming..... Surely there has to be something out there..... 

 

Thank you in advance

Hallo, ayupmiduck.

 

(Not from Yorkshire, by any chance?)  :thumbup2:

 

There is this possibility, it seems; apparently mini-ITX boards that take the mobile i7s are quite thin on the ground, but it might give you some pointers:-

Hope that helps.
