    Default Dell Latitude E6410 i7 720QM Works!

    I bought an E6410 off the outlet and it came with an i5 520m. While that was powerful enough, I wondered if a quad would work? It does!!! Here are my results:

    i5 3dmark06:



    i7 Idle:



    i7 Prime95 for 7 minutes(running all cores/threads 100%):



    i7 3dmark06:



    Idle temp has only gone up a few C, and after the thermal paste cures it should drop lower. Install was easy. I know the Dell tech in my area, so warranty won't be an issue. Any other benchmarks I should run?

    Now, anyone want my 520m?

    Is it just me, or are those temperature differences under load a little alarming given the performance gain?

    I used to run folding@home on a D630 with a T7300 and it would 90's regularly.

    Well, the max temp the i7 hit was 86C, only 5C hotter than an i5.

    Pretty much anything under 90C OK. My Macbook Pro 17's CPU would hit 99C playing Crysis.

    Lucky... Mine would routinely hit 103C.

    Nice though! What's battery life like?

    There's always a flaw in the system. Finding it is the fun part. Exposing it is the dangerous part. Utilizing it is the human part.

    I would say about 45 minutes less.

    3DMark is a measure of GPU, not CPU, performance. I would be more interested in seeing comparative CPU benchmarks such as wPrime and the SiSoftware Sandra Dhrystone and Whetstone. How far does the quad core CPU TurboBoost go? Does it deliver the same benchmark results as reported by Notebookcheck?

    I actually already removed the i7, as I didn't need it over the i5.But, during Prime95 on 8 threads, running the CPU at 100%, it only hit 86C. When I ran Prime95 on 1 thread, it went up to 2GHz+.
