How to Replace a Laptop CPU

Replacing an Intel Core2Duo T7250 (2x 2.0Ghz, 2MB L2, 800Mhz FSB) with an Intel Core2Extreme X9000 (2x 2.8Ghz, 6MB L2, 800Mhz FSB) in my Dell Vostro 1500 laptop. With a little silliness thrown in 😉

This video and its eventual successor were both edited and rendered using the laptop shown IN the videos…. In 1 hour and 19 minutes. Such a feat would have been impossible for the old CPU! I am so satisfied 🙂

In the day since installing the CPU, I have discovered that its average CPU temperature is easily 15F degrees cooler than my old CPU at idle… 96F!
