    does anyone know why acer are using 3 differant coloured cpu sockets the dark grey one (designed for celerons) the pink and white one which seem to be the full core2 socket just with diferrant colours?

    also is the whiter coloured socket newer as no-one on here seems to own a 5315 with one.

    different production runs by the manufacturer.... they run out of one part,, they buy the cheapest replacemnet that will meet the customers' specifications..

    it's as simple as that...

    I'm a bit afraid to diassemble the cooler system because I know that the processor die is not covered by a heatspreader and I wouldn't want to chip the core.Plus I guess this would void my warranty.For the moment I will leave it be because I have a powerful enough desktop to fit my needs.I opened the
    laptop just out of sheer curiosity.Plus the computational power the Celeron 560 gives me is enough for what I need.

    feel free to message me if you have any fruther questions....

    BTW to chip that core you'd have to be kinda brutal with it....

    as usual HOGGIE is always right

    the socket modification is not needed.... unless you wanna put a socketM in a MB that doesn't support it!

    I just got a T7100, planning on doing the upgrade in a couple of days, I've just got one question, I'd like to keep my default RAM for now which works on 533Mhz, will there be any problems if i stick in the T7100 because it has a rated FSB of 800Mhz?

    Any help appreciated !

    Dont worry about the ram....if it is PC2-4200 it will continue to function at 533MHz and if it is PC2-5300 it will then function at 667MHz....!!
