    ok but that would mean reinstalling vista before.

    and i know that i'll have to reinstall vista for resolving the cooling issue with the t9500 cpu.
    that means installing vista two times.

    in fact, i'd like to know from which number of bios version, the t9500 is supported.
    for now, the bios of my aspire is at version 1.33

    Ok, first as far as I know all 5315 have the same motherboard. So this is not a problem.
    Second, again as far as I know all 5315 have GL960/GM965 chipset which does support FSB up to 800Mhz.

    So the problem is most likely the BIOS...

    on another forum, i learnt that my t9500 cpu is an ES cpu (Engineer Sample)
    it's not a final version. it can have bugs or flaw errors.

    IT FINALLY WORKED !! with bios 1.43
    I DIDN'T EVEN REINSTALLED WINDOWS !!
    IS THAT WHAT THEY CALL A COLD BOOT ?

    i posted here the screenshot

    the next step is to replace the 1 gig ram of the top slot to a 2 gig ram and it will do 3 gigs, and to install a 64 bits os.

    No overheat to report

    Hi guys. One further update note. I have now upgraded to a T8300 at 2.4 ghz, 3mb ram, Vista basic and bios 1.27. The fan rarely comes on (ie. once every 15 minutes) and when it does, it's is BARELY audible. Both cores are steady right around 39 deg. C. under moderate load. For the cost of the machine and the upgrades, this is outstanding value. The T8300 runs about 8 degrees cooler than the T5550 in my machine, all else being the same.

    1/ i'm happy to have been bold to have bought a t9500, i have 2.6 Ghz
    1b/ i'm going to put a kit of 1+2G Kingston HyperX Performance (i still have to buy them)
    KHX6400S2LLK2/3G

    2/ same for me.

    3/ I didn't checked that. i guess cpu-z will help me.

    4/ I do agree. This is the benefit of the multi core, the charge of calculs (and Joule effect i.e. T° created by electrons movements) is dispatched into different places of the cpu
