Anyway, I'd go for a T9900. Also, your motherboard CAN accept a Quad mobile, even if it's not official it'll just show as 'Unknown CPU', but clock speeds will remain at default, because they use the same socket.

NO. Quad-cores use a different revision from the dual-cores. My motherboard, for example, does not support the quad-cores; I already tried. All it did was POST and then it would shut down. Just because the socket is the same doesn't make it compatible. This is the same case for the OP.

The T9900 is way too expensive for the performance it gives. Twice more for a CPU that is only 7% faster doesn't sound like a good deal.

Ah right I see, that's odd. Thanks for the correction . Well the OP said that the T9900 was cheaper than the X9100, so maybe he found a good deal?

Yeah, there's good deals on that CPU on eBay. Thing is, like I said earlier, because it's an Extreme Edition CPU it comes with a higher TDP and that means more heat that the heatsink has to dissipate plus a lot lower battery life.

T9600-T9900 are 35W TDP; X9000-9100 are 44W TDP.

EDIT:

My reading comprehension skills just got tested. If the T9900 is cheaper, then by all means go for it. It consumes less power and delivers the same performance.

The X9100 I found ships from UK (3-7 days to arrive) while the T9900 I found ships from China (15 to ∞ days). Both have free shipping and X9100 is $20 cheaper than the T9900.

Grr... I'm still debating the issue when my thermal paste and SSD are on the way and the laptop lies on the floor with it's guts all over the place. I'm going for the X9100. Cheaper and faster. I rarely use it on the move and have a Zalman NC-2000 anyway

Installed the X9100 along with the SSD (Intel X25M G2 160GB) and WOW! It's like upgrading from a pentium 4 to an i7! Windows boots and shutdowns faster than my desktop lol. No heat/power problems whatsoever although the CPU runs a bit hot (50ish on idle 70ish on load). One thing I've learned from this experience is that Velociraptors suck. I'm getting two more X25Ms for my desktop RAID array as soon as I'm able to...
