    Hello

    I have aspire 5739G since 2009. I never had a problem with him. I thought about upgrad it. I just ordered an Intel T9800 processor for it. I will also buy a 240GB ssd drive. I have some questions for you and I will be grateful for your response.

    Specification:
    Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium Home Edition Media Center 6.01.7601 Service Pack 1
    Mainboard : Acer JM50-MV
    Chipset : Intel PM45
    Processor : Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T6600 @ 2200 MHz
    Physical Memory : 4096 MB (2 x 2048 DDR3-SDRAM )
    Video Card : NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M
    Hard Disk : Western Digital WD3200BEVT-22ZCT0 (320GB)
    Operating System : Windows 7 Home Premium Home Edition Media Center 6.01.7601 Service Pack 1 (64-bit)
    Windows Performance Index : 5.4

    1. Can a laptop use 8 GB of RAM? I currently have 2x2GB. If so what bones? Do I need to switch something in the BIOS? Is there a sense of exchange 8GB vs 4 GB?
    2. I know that the T9800 can be used - only if it does not emit more heat. Has anyone used it and is there a big difference between the T6600.
    3. Do you have to use thermocouples or just a thermal paste when replacing the processor?

    I'm sorry for my English.

    1. It can use 8GB of ram but not all modules works in it (HMT351S6CFR8C-PB works for sure cus I am using these myself). Best would be to test before buying. No additional steps in BIOS or elsewhere needed. What it does? Well, it depends what you are doing. For browsing, yt, and other simple daily stuff 4GB is enough if you aren't gaming. Tho, SSD's use ram to improve SSD performance (at least samsung ones do) which might make 4GB a bit low

    2. I upgraded from T6600 to T9600 (2.8Ghz) which is basically same chip as T9800(2.9Ghz) just mine clocked lower. It needed some tinkering around to keep temps stable on extended intense use (like playing games) specially on hot days- good thermal paste and lowering CPU voltage with Throttlestop solved it (even tho I done much more than that, this had the best effect). Finally, yes its very noticeable performance difference between T6600 and T9600 (in your case- T9800 should do slightly even better)

    3. No you don't need to use thermal pads when replacing CPU. You leave GPU in place and disassemble laptop so you could take out motherboard while all heatsinks are still on it. Once MB is out unscrew CPU heatsink and lift it up . GPU and CPU fins are separate and just sticked together with tape. That allows to remove CPU without taking out GPU (which if taken out needs thermal pads)
