Has anyone successfully upgrade their Dell Precision M6300 - CPU to
I know that you can upgrade to
I am concerned that because of the 1066MHZ FSB on the x9100 the CPU will not work.
However I would love to hear from anyone that has tired with success or tried and it did not work
running BIOS A14
Thanks in advance
The Lenovo T61 hacking community have those processors working with the 965PM and 965GL chipset.
Hardware and BIOS mods are required. Also for hear reasons undervolting is helpful.
The M6300 could handle heat better than a T61. Something like a QX9300 with undervolt and 8GB RAM at 1033Mhz would make for a very nice system which would be good for many more years to come. Or alternatively a P9700 could run at 3Ghz, but with undervolt that would reduce the heat of the whole system to less than a basic T7200 system.
But we also need better fan control. We'd need someone with some assembly programming skills to do all this low level stuff. Its all possible, but it has not been done.
So if someone put up a D series fan site with an M6300 section then I expect it would all come together if it actually got some traffic. Are the Dell's as popular as the indistructable IBM/Lenovo's?
