Can i put a AMD Phenom II Dual Core N640 Mobile 2.9GHz socket S1 in my Acer 5534 L310. Heat is no matter nor is power it lives as a desktop.
The cpu is not soldered in from what i can see from online mobo pics.Originally Posted by Rebellion88
Firstly I would check to see if the CPU is soldered in, then I also check whether your motherboard/bios will accept that CPU you plan to put in. You should find info of this on the manufacturers website. You say heat is no problem, are you planning to leave it open with constant cooling? As the phenom may be a higher wattage, running at a higher clock and generate more heat. At idle this maybe ok but under a load could cause issues.
I replaced an old Sempron for a AMD Turion x2 years ago now was ok managed to get it working but the cooling wasn't sufficient even though it stayed on my desk with the back covers off and on a cooling pad too.
Nothing can be as bad as the 1.3 in it now. I can see why a used Turion 64 X2 TL-68 2.4 can cost so much with the 2.2 version is so cheap. The 1.3 is 13W the 2.2 is 35W. Can anyone find the specs for the foxconn NAL00 LA 5401P mobo?Originally Posted by jsc1973
No can do. You're trying to put a Socket S1g4 chip into an S1g1 socket. Compatibility information on the four iterations of Socket S1 is sketchy, but no one has ever reported being able to run an S1g4 chip on anything but S1g4. The S1g1 can take a faster S1g1 chip and some people have had success running S1g2 processors in them, but that's all.
If the motherboard can handle a higher TDP chip without frying its VRM's, the best chip that would be guaranteed to run would be a Turion 64 X2 TL-68, a 2.4 GHz version of the chip you have now. By today's standards, that's still a slug, though. It's about as fast as a 2 GHz Merom C2D, which is good enough to browse the Internet but not a lot more.
The fastest available version of any discontinued mobile CPU usually carries a price premium over the other versions, and often, so does the second-fastest. There are two reasons for this: 1) those chips were often rare when new, as they were the cream of the crop and hand-picked off the production lines for high frequency and low power; and 2) people upgrading older hardware look for the fastest upgrade that they can get.Originally Posted by Zig-Zag
