    Hi, I am a noob here and have read this entire thread from the beginning to the end. I have to say I have learned alot by reading all of this and I am biulding a Dell studio 1737, which has a t3400 and assuming the 45 chipset according to the specs.

    I seen in the first page that this cpu can be upgraded c2d,c2x,c2q and wondering which is the best route to go? Commander Wolfe you seem to have all the answers to this and much appreciated if you can point me in the right direction.

    Long story short, a neighbor of mine had given me this unit in pieces from the pryor owner who had a tantrum and completely destroyed the outer casing. I got a complete new case with a few more parts to get like ram,batt. trim and so on.

    Believe it or not but the motherboard is in perfect condition and just like to bring it back to life so any expertise would be appreciated btw that chart on the first page is amazing even I was able to understand it after the second look at it.

    Thanks

    The Studio 1737 houses Intel's Montevina platform and either has a GM/PM45 so any 1066 Core 2 Duo is supported. You could go with a Core 2 Extreme but it is not recommended as the cooling system probably couldn't handle it. Your best bet would be like a P8x00 series processor as they are super cheap these days. I doubt the Studio has the BIOS support for the Core 2 Quad but Dell traditionally has never whitelisted CPUs.

    Thanks for the quick reply Tsunade_Hime and checked out the prices for the
    p8800 and indeed a descent price for the processor. However as I kept researching and I came across a studio 1737 exactly identical as the one that I'm biulding and it has a c2x x7900 with 8gb ram.

    Just wonder if there are any heating issues with the lappy?

    I have posted the image here and it is from E-bay. It shows to be a refurbished unit which they are just as good as the new ones from my experience. I hope this will be of some reference for you or anyone like me thats just making a project of a neglected laptop.


    Thanks again

    The X7900 is 800 FSB which will work with your laptop, you could do the X9000 but they are quite pricey. But I doubt the 1737 cooling system could handle the Core 2 Extreme processors. You would be better off with those faster 25 watt Penryn processors, like a P8700. After a certain point unless you are rendering or running synthetic benchmarks 24/7, a faster CPU will not make a difference.

    Thanks again for your reply and the P8700 it is and hopefully the chipset is gm45 rather than pm45 as I understand (correct me if I am wrong) that handles 8gb ram.

    Just one more question... Is the 1737 worth all that I am putting into it? For it is quite a nice laptop.

    Thanks again

    Crucial shows the max RAM @ 4 GB. PM/GM 45 will handle 8 GB but Dell may limit the BIOS to 4. My Vostro 1500 has the similar situation, PM965 can support 8 GB as at the time of launch, 4 GB sticks were not out yet, however Dell limited the BIOS to 4 GB.

    Given the cheapo prices of the P8x00 series Penryn Core 2, you can't go wrong. But dropping 300 for like a T9900 is foolish. It will be a big step up from a T3400..

    Thank you Tsunade_Hime this is very helpful info and until a new project comes along, I will get the info from here. Also really don't want to spend no more than 300.00 for the entire 1737 project.

    Cheers

    Ok got the P8700 cpu and installed now as I was inspecting my work I noticed that the gpu isn't located near the cooling fan as I seen images of.
    Now I'm confused for the gpu looks to be on top of the motherboard, so does this make a difference in the chipsets or or is it still called montevina?
    Very confused here!!! Thanks

    Did some research on this studio 1737 and it appears that I have a m824g motherboard with intel media grapics accelerator grapics 4500mhd. Dont know if this is a good thing or bad so any help with this is appreciated.

    Thanks
