Will this be a problem ? I also read a lot of places, that Socket P compatible cpus have the capability to throttle the FSB speed.
You are of course, not responsible for my lack of attention when buying things on Ebay.
T9400 is a CPU for M6400 not for M6300
For M6300 you must purchase T9300, T9500 or X9000
The socket of M6400 is always Socket P so theoretically a M6400's cpu should be able to work on M6300 (albeit more slowly because of the slower FSB, 800MHz instead of 1066MHz).
But I can not confirm it because I've never experienced firsthand.
It was my intention to try (eventually) to install a QX9300 (M6400's QuadCore Socket P cpu) in a M6300, but so far I have not done it
