Upgrade CPU to the max

Jump to solution

Hello everyone how are you?

I´m here because i need your help. So i have a laptop with an intel board and cpu, that im upgrading. I have an Intel PM45 board with an Intel mobile

core 2 duo T9400

I have searched a lot, this will be my first time upgrading hardware and i´ve come to this but i have no clue if it is accurate so i do need your confirmation please. Can i upgrade my cpu to any of these 3?

 

T9900, QX9300 or X9100?

 

 

If so, which one is the best, in your opinion? Can i improve to quacore cpu? I do not intend to play with this laptop, for that i use my desktop pc but i do use it and intend on using it to work. I use a lot of cad programs with 3D modeling and calculation program at the same time.

I have already upgraded my ram to the max of 8gb ddr2 800MHz.

I´ve noticed that my current CPU (T9400) has a max TDP of 35W and the QX9300 has 45W. Does this mean i will fry the board?

To end, what is your opinion what is best? More L2 cache or faster clock speed, because i´ve found different opinions so far on what is best, for 3D modeling and calculation programs,

Thank you so much for your help, that i really need, best regards!

Hello Shinra00,

 

 

Based on the chipset family and the support socket, we can say these 3 processors are backwards compatible to the one installed on your laptop.

The following link will provide you the list of processors compatible with the chipset Mobile Intel PM45 Express Chipset.

However, you will need to get in touch with Hewlett Packard so they can let you know if the upgrade can be done or not.

You also need to ask them, if the motherboard will be able to handles a TDP of 45W since it is not an Intel motherboard. It was manufactured by Quanta.
