You can, but it takes alot of research and even more research.

You'd basically do it like a desktop.... take it apart, and pop it in.

You need to do the research, as your mobo only gets so much power, and that can't be changed.

Then thres the cooling.... too much chip = too much heat.

Has anyone had any success with this and if so what CPU did you use?

Along with what patonb said. It will take patience too. I've dismantled and put back together laptops before. It's do-able but painstaking. If anything you'll void the warranty too.
