    Those temps seems ok. What's the ambient temperature like of the place(s) you're using the laptop?

    You could try undervolting, if it's done right it'll reduce CPU temps and increase your battery life a bit.

    Wow I'm late in the game of this 137 page thread... only perused through the last 8 to get an idea of what people have done recently to their 5315.

    I want to add more life to my daughters Celeron powered 5315. The only thing I've done was increase the memory to 2gb when I first purchased it new years ago. Now that prices of parts have come down considerably I figured it was time to pimp it a bit.

    things on the list:
    1) upgrade bios to latest 1.45 (most current on acers site)
    2) T8100 CPU
    3) 500GB HD

    Any concerns I should think about before I take the plunge? eg cooling, bios compatibility, motherboard compatibility etc... thanks in advance

    the t8100 cpu can u use whithout problems, my t8100 runs @37 degrees centigrade. (not load just basic tasks)

    i see no reason why the 500GB HD wont work.

    hint: i may use the old and new HD on a pc so u can mirror the data and make the partitoins bigger.
    (if u have an WD harddisk , u can use "acronis true image wd edition" to do that. its free.
    a clean install is always good, it takes some work to install your programs again.

    There are few T9500 tryers. But is it ok in windows xp. Plug'n Play. Same question goes for T9300.

    ok so here is mine, upgraded this weekend for my GF after i went for a T9900 myself:

    3GB GEIL PC5300 (now running 667Mhz)
    Intel 320 SSD

    Running W7 ultimate x64 SP1 + Office 10 Pro Plus
    You'll have to love this baby, all works well and lightning fast now, system cosmetics still minst as well

    and the party goes on:

    T9500 & Intel 5300AGN arrived (already had 130mbit with the 4965agn, but now going for 300Mbit in dual mode) The T9500 is just for fun, because it can be done :D laptop is a screamer again :)

    4965 is capable of 300mbps in the same way 5300 is and both are so it's not an upgrade that was needed. Connection link of 130mbps suggests that you've used 20MHz channel width wither on router or in advanced settings of Intel drivers. There's also a chance that it's set to 40MHz or Auto and automatically falls back to 20MHz because of a good-neighbor mode.
