I have a brand new 9300. I will post pictures and a little explanation for upgrading:
512MB ram to 2g
6800Go to 7800 GTX
New Northbridge heatsink
1.73 533Mhz to a 1.7 400Mhz-2.26 Mhz pinmod.
from looking at my northbridge heatsink it doesnt look any different then in pics of xps2s.
I'm curious when 9300 users start converting if they will find that buying that northbridge heatsink is unnecessary, they look identical to me, and if anybody knows otherwise plz post pic of the different one
there are a few serial numbers on the heatsink is there a specific one on it to be able to tell difference between???
Or is it just that triangular shape it has cause mine looks identical to the xps2 pics of internals i have seen on this site
the part number for the card is hf594,You need the 130watt power adaptor you can save a few quid by usig the inspiron 5150/5160 adaptor.I should be able to post the results of the 7800 upgrade in the next week or so,trying to get my hands on a card as we speak its not so easy in Ireland
