Hey guys I have an interesting query

My G1S with a PM965 chipset can run socket P CPUs with the most recent bios update,

My question is what would happen if i used a T9400 which has a 1000 FSB in my PM965 800 FSB chipset? would there just be a drop in power?? Would it become self aware and attempt global domination?

Also would it run cooler than the T7500 i have atm?

If it works it would run 20% slower making the upgrade void.

Mmmm i thought as much, would the resulting performance be greater than, equal to or less than my current T7500?

I think the T9xxx Penryn series run considerably cooler than the T7xxx Merom series so im still considering it...

I wouldnt do it
You could go into power management and decrease the max processor frequency by
just a little bit (90-95% setting)
by not letting it go all out to %100 percent you wouldnt lose any noticeable
performance and would drop temps

Mmm cool idea king smp, i'm tempted to do it just out of curiosity... Will keep you posted =D
Also, what program would you recommend for testing CPU processing power?

Ill compare my stock T7500 against the stock T9500, then tinker around and see what i can do with the T9500.
I think ill also check temps of gpu and cpu under load as its for a laptop which shares one heat sink for both CPU and GPU.
