Hello I have a 6860 and what is the fastest CPu in it? It has a t5550 in it right now.



THanks again for the help
post #1694 of 2327
The fastest processors for the 6831 or the 6860 are:

t8300, t9300, t9500,

or the extreme series:

x7800, x7900, and x9000

I got my t8300 on ebay for just over $100 but I sold my T5550 for $70 on ebay so the upgrade cost was pretty low.

Hi all was wondering where I could find the most current drivers for my Gateway P-6860 FX. Just did a fresh install of windows vista 64 home premium. Any help would be appreciated don't want to install the wrong ones.

I have the best buy version of this beast and have owned it since they came out. I recently have started have over heating issues where it gets really hot then just summarily shuts off. I have not overclocked it or modded it from the original specs in any way besides maxing the ram out, which I did shortly after purchase. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions. I current use a cooling board which helps to circulate the air but it doesn't really help too much. I clean it pretty regularly as well so the air vents stay free of debris. I was wondering if maybe apply some CPU Thermal Paste would help with heat issues...beyond that I have no other ideas. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Take it apart and clean out the heat sinks, and yes applying thermal paste will help if you do it correctly and use good paste.

LOL. Open it up and clean it. I was amazed to see how much dust there was trapped against the heatsink fins, even though I airdust it regularly.

You can alway change the TIM while you're at it.
