    Laptop CPU upgrade from T7100 to T9500?


      Hi all,


      I'm going to upgrade my laptop CPU just to give it a bit more power. I've currently got a T7100 installed in my MAXDATA ECO4511IW.


      Current Specs:
      OS            = Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate x86
      CPU           = Intel Core2Duo T7100, 1800 MHz (runs at 1v - 1.175v, temp < 55 deg C)
      M/B Chipset = Intel Crestline-GM GM965
      Southbridge = Intel 82801HBM ICH8M-DO
      RAM           = 1 x 4 GB DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM  (set to 5-5-5-15 @ 333 MHz, 1.8v)
      3D Accel.    = Intel GMA X3100
      HDD            = SAMSUNG HM160HI ATA Device  (160 GB, 5400 RPM, SATA)


      I've compared other similar CPU's using Intel's web site; including the T9500, T9300, T7700 and the T7800.


      However I am uncertain if I can put the T9500 in. I'd like to be able to if I can but am confused about my options. The laptop was released and manufactured before the release of the T9500 and T9300. In my manual (found here - PDF), under specifications it states "Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor up to T7700 (up to 2.4 GHz), μFC-PGA package (Socket P), Intel® 965GM & ICH8-M".


      From the information provided by the Intel Site; is it possible to have the T9500 for my laptop or should I stick with what the manual states around only installing as far as the T7700?


      Thanks for your help in advanced,
      Pete 8)
