    finally got round to doing the upgrade, i have a 5315 which was purchased earlier this year it doesnt have a pink or grey CPU socket but instead has a creamy almost white one.

    Upgrade took 15 mins start to finish including flashing the bios to 1.33.

    Seems the Creamy white socket needs no modification my t5550 just dropped straight in! :D

    New specs T5550 1.83ghz core 2 duo, 2gb 667mhz ram, 250gb toshiba 5400rpm hdd.


    tbh i'm happy with the simplicity of the upgrade and seeing as i thought id have to sell it to end up with a similar spec lappy its seriously prolonged it life!

    congrats Lacky.... just think we can upgrade these again when the T7700 or T9300s drop to $75 (might be awhile though)

    i'v seen a few t7300 go cheap on e-bay may pick one of those up or plump for the t7500 they are the best i'v seen on e-bay uk so far (just concerned about temps with the higher end chips.

    temps will go DOWN due to SPEEDSTEP technology and the fact that the new CPUs are built on a smaller die and with more effiecient manufacturing technologies

    don't sweat the heat..... that CELERON is the HOTTEST socketP cpu these laptops can support

    yeah i have noticed the fan not spinning anywhere nearly as much as it used too.

    using hw monitor its cut almost 10degc off the idle and 3-4 of the load temps.

    tbh i'm loving this lo-cost lappy. and the gma 3100 is more then up to what i use it for.

    Gained 30mins on the batterylife also!!!!!

    see the "UNDERVOLTING GUIDE" in the hardware thread,

    follow it's directions and you may get your temps down a bit more.. and will probably gain more battery life

    Hello people!I am a new user on this forum.I bought a 5315 laptop 2 days ago
    that has a Celeron 560.I read this thread and opened mine to see id I had a pink
    socket.Surprisingly I have a dark grey one.What does this mean?And what's with the mod to the socket?Is that necessary if I want to install a more powerful CPU?
