    Can I ask for a 3DMark06 1280x768?
    It looks really good- I'd like to see how good. :)

    It's over 9000 ^-^ (9218)

    ORB - Compare

    New record score at 790/1024 (my new stable clocks)

    My 1280x1024 score is not far behind (8406):

    I am really tempted to see if a Q9200 would work.....

    I guess the improved cooling and cleaner power delivery is helping my chip.

    A note about the upgrade:

    The heatsink had a black shim on the contact area, to ensure good contact remove this (the 4670 core is much bigger than the GT240m and is rotated 45 degrees), you will reveal a nice large copper contact area.

    Also a note on CPU upgrades, the quad core cooler comes with one LARGE contact area (enough to cover an I7 quad die) so dual cores could be installed if you wanted.

    That's what I call an upgrade. :) How much did it cost you in total- if I may be so inquisitive?

    Well I got the base model for £590 (Q9000, 4GB of ram, 2x500GB HDD, GT240M) It was open box but new (I am guessing an RMA replacement).

    Screen was £90.

    I will be selling the HDDs, ram, old screen and GFX to make some of that back.

    I am looking at the service guide and it is showing that the graphics card is on a MXM card - so I'm confused by the entry.

    I'm happy to supply the page/pic showing the assenbly.

    Any reason for the difference?
