im thinking of upgrading the processor on my relatively old Compaq V6133CL. I currently have dual-core AMD 64 X2 TL-52 with 1.6GHz and want to upgrade to dual-core AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-60 with 2.0GHz. I did research on my own and asked HP tech support, which is pretty useless, but still need some advice. My question is will it be supplied with enough voltage, seems like it needs 1.075 / 1.10. The socket type is S1 in both. Are there any other things that I should be aware of?
My current system: 1.6 GHz AMD Turion TL-52 Mobo: Quanta 30B7 with F.3D bios from HP 2Gb DDR2
I recently upgraded the processor in my Inspiron 1545 to an Intel T9400. I think that processor totally rocks and performs as well as I need for everything that I do.
My Latitude D630 is not so fortunate. I forgot what the processor was that it has, but it has a 2MB cache and a 2ghz clock speed. It does not perform as well as my Inspiron does. If I were to buy another T9400 (since I already know I like it) could I pop it in my D630? Or is it not compatible with it?
I'm looking into upgrading my processor in my 6920G from a T5800 to an T8300. I was wondering if anyone would be as kind to help me with a guide of how to do it (since i don't have much of clue of how to change the processor beyond needing thermal paste and a screwdriver).
I have a Acer Aspire 3690. It has a Intel Celeron 420 M @ 1.60 Ghz with 512 RAM (Recently updated to 2 GB)
Now I am pretty sure this is compatible with mine: (Here) (NewEgg seems to be having problems with the website, just fyi, unless it is my computer)
It is a Intel Core Duo T2300 @ 1.66 Ghz. Now I have been wanting to know if the SOCKET is correct. Now according to NewEgg, it says it is a Socket M. Now according to utilities I have been running it says mine is a Socket 479.
So I looked that up and it turns out is it is basically a 478 (478 Pins) but they just said 479 for differentiating. And I have heard that Socket M and 479 are NOT the same and i have heard that they are, because sites such as NewEgg dont have Socket 479 processors cause they are actually Socket 478 Processors.
So anyways, i wanted to look up the package type to help me identify. My Package is a Micro-FCPGA. Now the one I want to get is a Micro-FCPGA as well. Now NewEgg doesn't tell you this.
So i found this place: (Here) They called there Socket a: Socket 479 Pin. Then i scroll down and it says: The Intel Core Duo Processors are available in 478-pin Micro-FCPGA and 479-ball Micro-FCBGA packages. This is 478-pin Micro-FCPGA package. Model: BX80539T2300.........................
I have a compaq cq50-209wm and it has a intel celeron 585 running at 2.16GHz. I'm not a really big fan of this processor it seems really slow, so I was wondering what other processors this computer supports. it has a socket p 478 so it must support some of the mobile core duos,
I've been out of the hardware game for quite some time. Cisco for 2 years will make you forget stuff.
I have a Dell XPS M1530, T9300 processor. I am wondering if I can upgrade to the T9900. Also, my current processor is 32 bit. Can I get a T9900 in 64 bit, and will it work with my mobo? OS doesn't matter, can redo it. I am trying to beef it up for better gaming. 3gb ram is killing me...
Another question. Just wondering if it is possible to get an i5 or i7 instead? Will the i7 physically fit into the slot? 45nm
Yet another question. The laptop runs hot already. With a processor upgrade, surely it will run hotter.
He has an M1530 1.8ghz T5550. He plays alot of games on this. He recently got Empire Total War and it is running slow. He wants to upgrade his processor but I told him that probably would not help. The min. requirements for the game I believe was 2.4 single core and a 256 mb graphics card. I believe he has the Geforce 8400. What are your thoughts on this? Would upgrading the processor help?
I'm in St-Jean QC at the military base and just before comming here I ordered my Dell XPS M1530 in january and got it shortly after. It came with 4 gigs of ram, the centrino duo-core 2.20ghz processor and the 128 ati card.
I had some negative experiences with the customer service from dell the first month I had it but I decided to let it go and enjoy the unit.
Has anybody ever called dell and had the unit sent back and had the videocard/motherboard upgraded for the 256mb version? I don't know if this is possible, and I'd love to call dell but I won't be able to after July 17th when I move onto my next base.
I'm about to get an studio XPS 16 and have a couple of questions regarding the components. I'm debating between the core i7 1.6 GHz with 6mb cache and the core i7 1.73 GHz with 8mb cache (the difference would be $350).
Also I was wondering if there was a major difference between the WLED and RGBLED screens? Finally, how much ram memory should I get, 4gb or 6gb? I'm just surprised that going from 4 to 6 costs $300.
I'm trying to decide if I should get the t4200 or the p8600. Is there going to be any noticeable difference for normal usage? I don't plan on playing any games or anything. Is it worth the $175 upgrade? I'm going to use it for watching HD videos, music, etc.
I've been stalking the XPS 1645/1647 for a while now hoping that the overheating/under clocking issues get resolved. I'm to the point now where I just need to roll the dice and make one of these work for me.
Currently I work off of a Mac Book Pro (latest unibody) with the 3.06 GHz processor upgrade and the 256 SSD upgrade and 4GB RAM. I do primarily web design (.NET, WordPress, etc.), so I stay in Windows (via Bootcamp) most of the time or work on my Sony Vaio Z. I was waiting for the Bootcamp upgrade to come out in hopes that it would help the hardware cope with Win7 better. Well, it came out a couple of days ago, and it did help, but it's still lacking in a few ways.
My question is around the processor. My everyday activities, making up 80% of my day, are fairly light with the exception of Adobe Creative Suite apps and Microsoft Visual Studio, but I do a decent amount of video processing. I am looking for the most power available without sacrificing battery life. If I understand the processor options correctly, that would be the i7-620M. How would that processor compare to the i5 540M in terms of speed and battery life? I have read that the i5 is "newer technology" and "should" be more efficient than the i7's.
I've read the threads on adding a copper pad with arctic silver in place of the junk stock thermal gum found in most laptops. Is it possibly to lower the heatsink assembly instead of adding a shim? I feel that a CPU-arctic silver-heat pipe connection would be way better than a CPU-artic silver-shim-artic silver-heat pipe connection. Also, is the 1mm rule a solid number or just a guesstimate? I've got a Studio 1737, Inspiron 9300, Vostro 1500, and Vostro A90 that all could benefit from this, I just don't want to mess it up.
if it is possible to upgrade my Studio 1535's processor (Intel C2D T5750, 2.0GHz). I cheaped out on most of the parts when I first bought this thing, as I was somewhat strapped for cash, so I went with the bare-minimum processor, but now I think I can do better.
So, is it possible to replace my processor? If so, what are some compatible models? I'm looking for at least 2.4GHz, for the record.
