Can I upgrade my processor from 1.8 to 2 GHz?
Can I upgrade the processor from 1.8 to 2 GHz on my iMac?
Is this a good question?
1.6, 1.8, or 2 GHz G5 processor
The processors in the G5 dual xx is mounted in quick-connectors, but You have to loosen all of the screws that keep the in place, even those place under the "G5" plate. It should be around 10-12 screws with either t10 torx screws, or small phillips screws. It can have one of those two configs, but when first removed, taking out the CPU is a straight forward task.
@mayer: A G5 dual comes in several configurations, so the "xx" simply mean that you replace them with the processor-size ex: G5 dual 1.8, G5 dual 2.0, ... etc.
@mayer: No, that had slipped my eyes. I'll shut my mouth ;-)
By using the scale I normally do! I have upgraded about 6 pc's and 4 mac's using the same scale by using the scale I use! You should be able to upgrade to about 2.25ghz from 1.8 2.2ghz for sure! All I can say is prices on ebay have never been cheaper!
