Upgrading AMD CPU on a Toshiba - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Some of these suggestions are borderline ridiculous.

64GB SSD with an external HDD which you have to carry around? Really?

Learn how to optimize Windows and any 5400 RPM drive will do, although I do recommend a decent 7200. The need for SSD is highly overrated, a CPU is a much better investment in my opinion.

Got the CPU installed today, picture time:

BEFORE: bios pic with P340

On the left is the Quad-Core X920 installed in the socket on right the original P340

AFTER: Bios pic with the X920 installed and fired up

In CPUID the TDP on the P340 was 73watt (must be some kind of error) while the X920 is correctly recognized as a 43-45 TDP processor

Also, the code name didn't show up at all with the Dual core…now it says “Caspian” which is a single core S1G3 turion based CPU, it should say “Champlain”…CPUID trolling me or something?

Ironically about this is that the X920 is not offered in any Toshiba laptop, it’s found in high end Acer laptops in Europe.

It does run hot, I put some IC Diamond paste…idle is similar but under load temps jump up fairly quickly, will mess around with undervolting and report back.

So far the performance is much better, boot time is quicker and I can do a bunch of stuff at the same time without lag.
