I'll do some tinkering over the weekend and let you know what Ifind out. It balances performance and power requirements across system workloads to represent real-world power usage. The Core 2 Duo is by far the best I have ever seen in terms of performance. Anyway, so far so good, it gets a GeekBench score of about 2700 compared to 2000 originally. This doesn't appear to short anything out, as long as your screw head is not too wide. For most gaming or spread sheet work, though, you are only going to be using one core at a time.

Good luck to all those who want to get the best out of their machines. Had to change the permissions on the CoreServices parent folder to be able to save, though. Temperatures are close to what they were before the upgrade, the T7400 runs about 10°C cooler than the older T2300 when idle or browsing.

But relative rankings would be a useful note. The socket is the type of connector that connects the processor to the motherboard. I really wanted to report this here as it might help others.
This updated restored the platformsupport. Don't even consider the Intel video for any reason. They're sold by Digi-Key: You may want to make this information available on your site.
