    Thanks a lot for this information - I have the service manual already - Also are the processors available on Eurocom Panther Server same model as d900f supported - more importantly the 5680 - six core - Other wise I was planning for 980x. I need the six core because my computer spends a lot of time rendering (CPU based).

  • rohit_bhalwa Nov 15, 2010

    Also how do you add 12 and 24 gb ddr3 , when each slot accepts only 2 gb chips according to the manual ??? I have 2x3 = 6 . And I did not find any major brand selling a 204 pin triple channel 4 / 8 gb module ?? many companies are offering 12 and Eurocom is offering 24 gb memory for the D900F ????

  • rohit_bhalwa Nov 15, 2010

    I thought Eurocom Panther and AVAdirect had the same Clevo D900F base model to begin with . I currently have the AVAdirect one - rather I got it from Cyberpowerpc for cheaper ....

  • rohit_bhalwa Nov 15, 2010

    But are'nt they the same base models ???? of Clevo ???? So wont I be able to put Xeon x5680 ????

If I am right, you are talking about Clevo D900f Gaming Laptop (AVADirect Clevo D900F). If the Xeon Processor you have is one of these models Xeon™ E5540, Xeon™ X5550, Xeon™ X5560, Xeon™W5580, then there's nothing more you need to do, you only need to replace the new Xeon Processor on the available Processor(CPU) slot. There are many other supported Xeon models but these are the recommended and there's no doubt replacing.

For your reference, I've attached the Service Manual (Click Here), Removing and Replacing Processor is on Page #. 38 with Cautions and warning.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

    Yes, Eurocom D900F Panther Server system has many more options to choose. You can check out here (click here), open the link and click the arrow button below "Upgradeable Processor with Choice of Thermal Compound (Standard, Artic 5, Diamond 24 or Liquid Ultra" for more details.





    You are right, if you run/do "Heavy Duty" tasks or projects on your system, 6 cores is highly recommended.

  • Lebanon Raingam
    Lebanon Raingam Nov 15, 2010

    Now I am confused.. Are you talking about AVADirect Clevo D900F or Eurocom D900F Panther? If it's Clevo D900F, then you can install maximum 6GB (2GB each on three slot).



    If you want to install 12GB on Eurocom D900F then you can install this one (Click Here). i.e. 4 gb each on 3 slots.





    You are right when you say 24gb with 204 pins, I also haven't come across with that similar capacity. I'll update you.

  • Lebanon Raingam
    Lebanon Raingam Nov 15, 2010

    No AVADirect's Clevo D900F is pre-configured and has limited options while Eurocom's D900F Panther has several customizable options eg. it's Ram can be upgraded upto 24gb but Clevo D900F could be only upto 6GB. You can check out the Eurocom D900F Panther details here (Click Here).





    Sorry for the delay, there was connection problem and I lost my connection while trying to post back.

  • Lebanon Raingam
    Lebanon Raingam Nov 15, 2010

    Only their model number is similar, but their form-factors, bus speeds, and other components are different, in other words, Eurocom D900F Panther is more Advanced as compared to Clevo D900F. The lists of Xeon Processors supported by Clevo are Xeon E5540, Xeon X5550, Xeon X5560, Xeon W5580 and few more but no Xeon X5680, (Click Here for details) [scroll down to the middle of the page] and I don't think there's more I need to say. Now compare it with Eurocrom D900F (Click here).

Can the intel pentium dual core processor be upgraded?

Is it possible to upgrade the processor for the sony vaio pcg 81114l


most likely this cannot be done, the sockets for the processors have changed twice since then. I don't think you would see a great prefprmace change if you could. You might thim=nk about upgrading to a more powerful core I7 from that generation, but you would need to find out which mother board you have and which processors it supports. Unless you are skilled in laptop repair, I would pass on the upgrade.

Upgrade proccessor


Dear Justin,

The Latitude E5410 service manual shows that the following processors can be used: Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 series, as well as Intel Celeron and it is also shown in the manual that the processor can be removed (it is not soldered directly to the motherboard) . And a review of this laptop by "Notebook Review" indicates that "The Latitude E5410 offers a wide range of processor options, spanning from the Core i3 370M to the Core i7 620M."

Although I do not know which processor you presently have in your laptop, I would say that it can be upgradeable from a Core i3, or Core i5 to a Core i7 620M processor.

Hope this helps!

Cant find upgrade info on cpu for this


http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?cc=uk&lc=en&product=4320950

Product information> Product specifications> HP G72-B02SA Notebook PC Product Specifications>

Intel Pentium P6100 CPU (Processor),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_microprocessors#.22Arrandale.22_.2832_nm.29

Uses the Socket G1 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_G1

"The current CPUs to use this package are the Core i7-6x0M series, the Core i5-4x0M series, the Core i5-5x0M series, the Core i3-3x0M series, and finally the Pentium P6x00 series and Celeron P4x00 series which were released on March 28, 2010. However, not all of these are available for Socket G1, as some of them are only available in a BGA package."

http://www.cpu-world.com/Sockets/Socket%20G1%20%28rPGA988A%29.html

Motherboard Chipset not stated on HP Support.

I forgot. This is HP UK Support.
People in the UK are the best, but the UK support information for anything -> BITES!

The Product Number is XF133EA.
Let's try it that way,

https://h10057.www1.hp.com/ecomcat/hpcatalog/specs/provisioner/05/XF133EA.htm

Processor subheading -
Chipset: Intel HM55 chipset

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#LGA_1156

LGA 1156 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1156

LGA 1156 processor support list,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1156#Supported_processors

I'll just go back to the G1 processor socket CPU support list.
(CPU = Processor)
Much easier(?)

There is no Front Side Bus. (FSB)
These processors use QPI.
Quick Path Interconnect,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QPI

Therefore look at the Ram Memory support, and the Voltage range, used by the Intel Pentium P6100; to compare to processors that may be supported; and add to that the processor MUST use a Socket G1 processor socket.

1) Ram Memory support
2) Voltage Range
3) Socket G1 processor socket

Pentium P6100 ->
Supports DDR3 Sdram ram memory at 1066MegaHertz.
It is the 1066MHz to keep in mind here.

Voltage range; .0775 to 1.4 Volts (DC)

Okay, now compare to list of supported Processors, on the CPU-World / Socket G1 article,

http://www.cpu-world.com/Sockets/Socket%20G1%20%28rPGA988A%29.html

"Socket G1, or rPGA988A, is a socket for first generation of Nehalem-based mobile microprocessors.

Me: ->FIRST generation of NEHALEM based MOBILE processors.

NOTE* ->
The socket was introduced in September 2009 along with the ->first three Core i7-branded mobile CPUs, and eventually it was used for Core i5, Core i3, mobile Pentium and mobile Celeron families.

Me: In order of technology, or crudely can be stated as, "which is better", the order is;

Intel Celeron
Intel Pentium
Intel Core i3
Intel Core i5
,plus the first three Intel Core i7 processors, that used the Socket G1 processor socket.


NOTE*->
The rPGA988A works with dual- and quad-core chips, built on 45nm and 32nm technologies, and operating at frequencies up to 2.8 GHz.

Me:-> Core technology based on 32NanoMeter, or 45nm.
Up To a 2.8GigaHertz frequency rate. ('Speed')

NOTE*->
The socket supports DDR3 memory with data rates up to 1333 Mhz, and Direct Media Interface. Socket G1 was superceded by socket G2."

Me: Stick with 1066MHz ram memory, and Intel processors that support it.

Moving on..........
Processors supported, going from Core i7 down.

[NOTE* Dealing with a laptop/netbook processor is different than a desktop processor.

You are looking for 'processing power', but also power saving features.
Power saving as in how much power the processor will use.
Mobile processor = Laptop/Netbook processor.
The less power it uses, the better for a Laptop/Netbook.

The battery will last longer.

Therefore it really is up to you.
Balance of processor 'power', and saving battery power ]

Core i7 - 6x0M

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i7_microprocessors#.22Arrandale.22_.2832_nm.29

Only 2 use the G1 CPU socket.
Intel Core i7- 620M, and Intel Core i7 - 640M

The rest use the BGA surface mount that has 1288 solder balls.
Explained at end of solution, about the BGA surface mount.

Notice they are Arrandale Core. Also the Arrandale Core is based on the 32nm architecture.
Notice they support DDR3 Sdram that is 1066MHz.

Notice ALSO that it is -> TWO DDR3 Sdram ram memory modules.

THAT, is what you want.
NOT an Intel Core i processor that needs THREE ram memory modules, ('Stick'), in order to operate.
Long dissertation, will include detailed info at end of solution.

You actually need to know the old technology, and compare to the newer Intel Core i technology, to fully understand.

CPU World processor support list also includes Intel Core i7, model 920XM, and Intel Core i7, model 940XM processors,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i7_microprocessors#.22Clarksfield.22_.2845_nm.29

To me this = No.
DDR3 Sdram ram memory, but 1333MHz frequency rate. ('Speed')
Also voltage range is .0650 to 1.4 Volts.
MAY work, MAY NOT.

BIOS may recognize the processor, and make changes accordingly.
Then again it may not.
BIOS upgrade? I'll pass. Too easy to scre-w up, and also miscommunicate proper procedure.

Stopping for a second;
The Core i technology will 'slap a Pentium around'
It's like comparing the 'grocery getter car' to a fuel dragster.

Core i3 and Core i5 technology has less 'processor power', than a comparable Core i7, but the Core i3, and Core i5 were also designed to use less power. Therefore (Supposedly) more battery life.

The Intel Pentium P6100 is a dual core processor. Two processor cores.

http://ark.intel.com/products/50175

But the Core i7 is essentially a quad core processor.
Four processor cores.
This is because it uses the old HT technology.

Hypertransport Technology.
Two REAL processor cores, and if it is needed Two VIRTUAL processor cores.

Intel Core i7, model 620M; for an example,

http://ark.intel.com/products/43560/Intel-Core-i7-620M-Processor-4M-Cache-2_66-GHz

2.0GHz maximum frequency rate for the Intel Pentium P6100.
2.26GHz for the Intel Core i7-620M

Nothing to write home to Mom about, as far as using 2 processor cores.
But when the 2 virtual processor cores of the i7 kick in, that's when the Pentium P6100 would get lost in the dust.

Instead of having two processor cores operating at 2.0GigaHertz, (Pentium P6100), you have FOUR processor cores operating at 2.66GHz.

Crude example?
Two men digging a ditch. Take them out, and replace with four men.
Which scenario will get the job done faster?

HOWEVER, surfing the internet? Watching a video?
Only 1 or 2 cores are going to kick in.
Playing an intensive game, or running an intensive program?
THEN all 4 cores kick in, and kick sum boot-y.

Lot of prattle I posted. Hope you can make some sense of it.


Ha! I just found this. Here is the 'definitive' CPU Support list.
It is listed in the Compaq Presario CQ72 Notebook PC and HP G72 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide. (Service Manual, really),

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02641840.pdf

Page 11:
"Intel Core i7-620M
Intel Core i5-540M

Hi rlcaralde,

Your motherboard will not support intel i5 or i7 processor .
Reason:-
In this motherboard socket 775 is used. It only support intel Pentium 4, Core2due etc..

So, if you want to add i5 or i7 processor you need to by new motherboard.

Thanks.

You can only mix the same family processors with different stepping and speed. Pentium D is not in the same family as a Xeon. So no, you can not. For as long as the processors are in the same family, you can mix dual core with quad core and even different speed.

ASUS P5Q3 with Xeon CPU


Yes, it will work. However it depends on which one you buy. Here's one that will work with that particular motherboard.

First, visit this website. Now search for, "Xeon" (Without the quotes, though). Click the second result on the list, which should be the, "Intel Xeon E3110 Wolfdale 3.0GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor Model BX80570E3110 - Retail." That processor is a 45NM LGA-775 processor, which Asus claims that motherboard can support 45NM LGA-775 processor.

Let me know if I can assist you further, or if I need to explain anything in more detail. If this solves your question, please rate the solution.
