Replacement of original 1.66 Mhz CPU

Hi @ all,

Thanks to the great guides on this side I managed to replace 80 GB hard drive by 500 GB and increased the RAM to 2 GB. Thanks to all of the testers and writers!

Now I have the chance for possibly great deal, getting the T7500 CPU (2.2 Ghz) for a less than reasonable price. Looking at the Intel specs just bus speed (800 to original 667) and the voltages slightly differ. I guess bus speed doesn't matter because it will be limited to the systems 667.

Will the T7500 CPU work in this Mini model? Quick reply highly appreciated.

CPU “Socket M” also supports these 667 Mhz FSB processors:

1.73Ghz Core 2 Duo T5300

2.13Ghz Core 2 Duo T7400

2.33Ghz Core 2 Duo T7600

I have had every single version of these processors working in A1176 platform. The 1,1 model can be flashed to 2,1 and any processor used.

ok - here we go.

since we've had this topic yesterday - i can say somethig about that

the t7500 is a socket P (479) - the mini needs a Socket M (478)CPU (7200, 7400, 7600)

even if the cpu would fitted with an adaptor - it woul only have around 2ghz - and that would be to much trouble for this little gain.

i paid 80 usd for a almost new mini itx board - including the power supply, riser card and a t7400 cpu

thats 25% off the regular used ebay price for the cpu alone - so maybe you should look aout for some itx bundles - they are sometimes realy cheap to get.
