I'm having the same problem with the aforementiomed 2670QM. I installed in on my 4530s, which came with the i3 2350m. No post. I thought I fried something, but the i3 worked just fine when I tried it again. Going to try the i7 once more before I get another chip. Anyone know how I can get it to work?
Do you know if it's an OEM or Engineering sample 2670QM? When I was researching upgrading the processor in my 4530s, I remember coming across an issue on whether a given 2670QM CPU chip was an OEM or engineering sample and that engineering samples might not work with OS X. If you got the CPU for much lower than the current going rate, there is a good chance that it's an engineering sample.
FWIW, the 2670QM that I installed in my 4530s has been working flawlessly for over 2 years.
