I have the processor on order. Should arrive Tuesday Sep 29.

Will try it out and report back.

If it works great I'll order another for the other identical computer provided there's enough of a performance boost over the Q9100 to justify the price.

I find it amazing how with a few simple upgrades a computer made in 2010 is still good enough for most normal things.

For the other one I have to get another backlight driver and cable for the LCD.

I got the processor installed.

Works great.

Tried with the original heatsink and it averaged around 130F with a few minor things running.

Tried the better heatsink from the other computer and it is 118F with a few minor things running.

So I'll order another heatsink for the other computer.

Thanks.

Now to figure out if the performance gains are worth buying the same processor for my other identical computer.

Only bad thing is two cores are stuck at 1600MHz which might be motherboard related unless that's just how the processor is.

I did notice things seemed to load faster and overall it seemed to be better.
