    Default HP 8510/8710w - are CPU's upgradeable?

    Are the CPU's in the HP 8510/8710 series easily upgradeable?

    I am thinking about the new T7800, X7800 and X7900 Extreme CPU's.

    Same socket same FSB so looks like yes.

    Ha, all you'll be doing in that upgrade is throwing out a few hundred bucks and risk breaking your computer permanently.

    Being out a few hundred bucks is understood.

    Why would upgrading the CPU break my computer?

    You make it sound so easy. If you bend/break a pin, short the mobo...

    Now I don't know your skill with computers, but I've dealt with people who point to their computer and call it a modem.

    I am not sure if the X7800/X7900 are going to be work . . . they have a 44W TDP compared to the standard Core 2 Duo's 35W. The 8510's cooling system is already strained so putting in a much hotter CPU is not going to help matters. Your notebook could overheat. Also, the power adapter may not be able to supply enough power.

    I suggest asking HP if they are going to put in the Extreme CPUs.

    Oh and by the way, the X7800 is a waste of money, it's as fast as the T7800 which is less.

    What about the 8710? Do 17" models have better cooling?

    From what I understand, the X7800/X7900 have their multipliers unlocked so they can be overclocked much more easily that the T7*00 series.

    There is a guy on this forum who has put a X7800 into his T61p. I wonder how his mod is working out.
