It has a different socket than the usual desktop motherboards, so I doubt you would be able to do it.

Even if you'd find a desktop motherboard that would support this CPU, it might not be the best investment and you'd be probably better off selling the laptop for parts and just building a new PC.

The answer is a resounding no. Sorry man, as far as I'm aware mobile CPU's are soldered in place and attempting to remove it would probably destroy it. Plus as it's been said, mobile CPU's do not use desktop sockets.

You'd be better off building a new PC or getting a refurbished dell workstation.

There are some mobile CPU's that are not soldered. This is especially true for older generations.

Intel started soldering all mobile CPU's after Haswell. As for AMD lets not talk about their mobile CPU's....

Let's hope Raven Ridge changes that.

Is the CPU soldered? If so, then no.

If not, I did find this board which claims to support the QM57 (pga988 socket) that is required for your CPU.
