I just recently got a mint condition P-6831 FX off of eBay for $690. I'm still sifting through all 1192 posts but could somebody tell me if the Intel Q9000 or the Q9100 processor will fit it? I know it's socket P (478) 45nm Penryn running at 1066 FSB micro-FCPGA if it helps.

somebody correct me on this, but im pretty sure the 6831's cant use quad processors.

a T9300 is a great upgrade for that laptop though.

Is any one able to use n-hancer with their p-7805u? I cannot get it work properly at all, I have up to date drivers and everything, I can sometimes get the program to run, but it gives me a long error message and doesn't let me use a profile for my games, very frustrating because the nvidia control panel profiles suck.

Yes I believe you are right. Reason being that it does not support 1066mhz fsb and no ddr3 ram, but not completely sure what your requirements is

If anyone has OC'ed their GPU I have a few questions:

What were your clocks OC'ed to?

This would be for people with the stock 6860 or like model

Ok, I've finally read all the posts here and have one question that needs cleared up. Does the bios on a 6831 let you tweak the multiplier and the FSB if you drop in an extreme cpu?
Also, would I see better performance from an X7900 or a T9300 cpu?

With correct BIOS yes you can use the unlocked multipliers of extreme. X7900 better performance even without OC.
