I have an Inspiron B120 that has served me well over the years & am looking to upgrade the processor from a Celeron M 360 1.4 GHz to a Celeron M 450 2GHz. The User manual says:
ProcessorProcessor type Intel ® Pentium ® M or Intel Celeron ® ML2 cache 2 MB (Pentium)1 MB (Celeron)External bus frequency (front sidebus) 400 MHz or 533 MHz
The 360 & 450 both support socket PPGA478 , the processing die size on the 360 is 87 mm2 & the die size for the 450 is 90 mm2. Should I be concerned about that?
Voltages look pretty close. The Max TDP on the 450 is 27W (360 is 21W) - I suppose that means the fan will just have to work a little harder to cool the 450.
The 360 FSB = 400MHz whereas the 450 FSB = 533 but it looks like according to the manual specs both are supported.
Can I swap out the 360 in favor of the 450?
Here are the specs for both:
