post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello to Overclock, I am trying to find are two things, and I am DESPERATE, as in Costa Rica no one has a clue about upgrading or overclocking, so I need all the help I can get, and iseads suggestions appriciated.

Updgade info for a Sony Vaio FE 780, currently a C2D T5600 w 2 Gb Factory Ram, I want to take this laptop as far as I can, fastest Processor, fastest Ram, fastest Hard drive, Bios, settings, tweaks,

Complete A-Z build info for a high end quad core SLI gaming/graphics/cadcam / video workstation, the correct MOBO, CPU, GPU(s) parts, settings everything

Once I find these out, I have other projects.

Uhhh....Overclocking a laptop is a no no. It will overheat and won't overclock that much.
or you meant upgrading your laptop to the fastest? It is best for you to build a PC.

I think he is interested in UPGRADING his laptop, then building a separate main computer using a Conroe tailored for extreme gaming and CAD work

Well, do you know of any Costa Rican computer web sites? And also, what is the budget you have in mind?

1st, on a Vaio FE 780, can I access the C2D T5600, and replace it with a faster C2D, what is my upper limitation, can I do a C2D Extreme?

2nd, I know I can get to the Ram, I have 2 Gb of the Sony Ram, but will I get more going to 2Gb of aftermarket Gamers Ram, and what is the highest speed I can effectivly use.

THEN I need to know about changing Bios, jumpers, settings, etc...

Factory Vaio FE 780 specs:
Intel® Centrino® Duo mobile technology with interrelated Intel® Core™2 Duo mobile processor T5600, Intel® 945GM chipset, Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945AGB network connection (802.11a/b/g) and extended battery life capability
2GB PC2-4200 DDR2 memory for multitasking power; 667MHz frontside bus, 2MB L2 cache and 1.83GHz processor speed

Thanks pow3rtr1p,

Budget is open, if I get excited and can make this a C2D Extreme, I will spend the $$, it's getting the parts in CR that is an issue, actualy, the knowledge is the issues, you can buy C2D Extreme Processors here, but you have to pay 30% more then the US, so it's easier to have them delivered by FEDX.

I know all the Costa Rica Computer Shops, imagine a computer shop in small town USA, with VERY limited options, and nothing that smells of OverClocking..If anyone knows of a CR shop that does, TELL ME PLEASE!

Are there any American internet stores that you know ship to CR? If so, we can make this very easy for you.

ExcaliburPC is good about international shipping, good rates too from what little experience I have had with them. I believe they would even be willing to source parts they do not typically carry, not all shops carry the mobile core duo line

It is confirmed via's SonyStyle that the FE line of Vaio's can handle the T7600 = WOOOT

Hi all, WOW, thanks for all the feedback. I can get things shipped, I actually use a Miami street adress, and then AeroCasillas brings it into CR and to me door, kind of a conbo between FEDX and Customs broker..

It's the knowledge I lack..BUT I WILL LEARN..

Does anyone have any experience / Photos as to the step by step to open the FE780 and replace CPU with a T7600, and the faster HD, and anything else upgradeable.

Also, I know how to get to the Ram, but if I have Sony facory installed 2GB PC2-4200 DDR2 memory and the factory VAIO FE Mobo, what is the fastest Ram that works with factory VAIO FE Mobo and FSB settings, etc.

SEE, I know justenough to get myself in BIG trouble...
