you can add up in your head, how the processor drawing less power, makes the brick run *even cooler* than it did after the mod. And here's the numbers:
The energy meter says 35 watts at idle (with the screen blanked)
And 50 watts when...
Put in the SL77R. The other one was a SL6WK. Was the OEM processor with the laptop.
The SL77R POST displays 3.2Ghz; once in windows CPUID or CPUZ says only 1.6Ghz. The only threads I could find were of computers posting at 1.6Ghz, and...
I find SL7CH
Do you mean this one?
I see the price *is* quite high... oh my.
However, that one is also 130nm, so it's not inherently cooler or lower power.
That's what I'm asking: what are the model numbers of the best p4's to put in this board.
It's based on an intel chipset i865 or something. look at the cpuz output
edit: Everest says Intel Springdale i865PE
edit: I think those...
Based on the hype around the 'net and very limited feedback (is everyone more than 2 years into computers here dead ? ), I had earlier formed the opinion the SL77R was a 90nm production processor with lower heat. Now I see it's...
