More about upgrade celeron b800
  1. What motherboard do you have?

    As far as I can tell (using WIKI as a resource), the only upgrade options for Socket G2 processors (such as your current B800) is:
    B810 - Dual Core 1.6GHz
    B840 - Dual Core 1.9GHz
    All other specifications are the same. I don't think either option would be financially worthwhile and I don't think you would gain a whole lot of performance from 0.4 extra MHz :(

  2. What make/model of motherboard are you using? We need that information to determine what processors are compatible with your system. You can also look up directly at your motherboard vendor's website.
  3. ^+1 what COLGeek asked

    But you need to see if your motherboard has an actual socket with a removable cpu, and not soldered on. Also you will experiance overheating with anything you upgrade too, so be cautious.
  4. just putting this out there, i have a b800 in my laptop(if i had known it was a celeron i wouldn't have it) and it is removable and on my laptop it has 2 CPU slots on the board but it isnt supported for using the other slot with the celeron

    Its still a sandy bridge celeron though.

    What make/model of laptop are we talking about here (with 2 CPU sockets)?
