@johnnymo: Did you have to do the heatsink mod on the 9600 when you put it in there? My I8500 has been going strong for years, but she's only got a gig, plus the video is starting to go; artifacts leading to freezing-maybe it's the fan. So right now I'm deciding, replace and mod the video, plus buy 2 fresh GB of RAM...or buy a new Dell XPS M1530?? Tough decisions. The parts for the 8500 will be $3-400, the new system would be $1400!
