Hi, i got a year ago an Alienware M17 clone (it was anounced as a OCZ laptop)
With the following specs.
Intel core2quad 9100
Dual ati 3850
blue ray player
TBH i don't use the laptop that much, I mostly use my desktop and my phone.
when i received the laptop i notest that the laptop chipset was getting to 90C+ and the cpu was almost the same (1 year ago) so i did the copper shim mod and reduced the CPU temps and 5-10c the chipset temps.
I don't need a Quad core on this laptop, so i was wondering if someone has replaced the C2Q 9100 to a Dual core, and IF i can do that ( without updating the bios, because i don't know what manufacturer to get it from) What is the Fastest Dual core this laptop accepts?
Thanks for the advices.
