You will start by taking of the part with all the buttons above they keyboard. You will when remove the whole top where the keyboard is and then you will take the motherboard out. Once the motherboard is out you will see there is a heatsink screwed onto it where the GPU is. Mine was badly blocked by dust but after I cleared it and applied new thermalpaste my temps dropped 20 degrees celcius
Okay, sweet thanks! I will look into it!

However, today compusa (tiger direct) has gotten a shipment of refurbed 7805u's. I ordered one as soon as I saw the deal.

Hey guys, just figured I'd let you know that there should be a new FX coming out (I work at Best Buy) and while I'm at work tonight I'll be getting as much info as I can about it so around 10pm I can post it up here!

I can't find the 7805 anywhere online, does anyone know if BB will be getting any for their online store?

It looks like they have them, but you have to pick them up at a BB store

Well, my CPU is running at 62 degrees under load so I am gunna try to switch it up and put in some new thermal paste and clean things up a bit. I'll keep ya guys posted on how it goes and if it runs any cooler. One question though. How much surface area is on the part of the chip that touches the heatsink? It doesn't look flat in the pictures, so is the area touching it really small?

It should be flat, but if it isn't then that's where the thermalpaste kicks in... It will fill in the gaps and transfer the heat. That may also be the reason why you are getting those high temps

Sounds good, I will most likely be giving this a shot soon

Hey guys I got my 7805
Do any of you guys hdd light constantly flash? Mine seems to always be flashing but I don't notice any slowdown and it runs games like a champ.

Responses appreciated.
post #1340 of 2331
I know this has probably been answered already, but I can't seem to find the answer. I am trying to upgrade my CPU to something 2.6GHz or higher. Trying to play all the games I have, and some require more than the stock P8400. What is the best CPU i can upgrade to, bang for my buck.
