Hey guys!

I have an Intel Mobile C2D T5550 running on the PM965 Chipset (NB) in my laptop.

I was thinking of upgrading the CPU to a T7700. Here's a comparison link.

I am 95% sure this will work in my system, I just looking for confirmation.

Thanks
Frost.

I am pretty sure that will work Frost. I have upgraded from a T7250 to a T7200 in my brothers Dell studio with the 965 chipset. It worked like a charm. You shouldn't have any issues. Just as long as the FSB is the same, you should be good. :)

If the chipset will take the Chip, it should work... i'd be sure to keep an eye on temps though.. make sure they don't climb too high.

NVM: Should'a checked the chart first lol.

Yeah, as long as that chipset will take that chip, than you shouldn't have any problems at all.
Might loose a bit of battery life though.
