I have a samsung R510 with a core 2 duo T6400. http://ark.intel.com/products/40479/
I took it apart earlier today to clean it up inside, since it has been overheating recently. When I got the heatsink/fan combo off I noticed that the cpu can easily be removed and replaced, it's not soldered onto the mobo. So then I did little googling about upgrading it, as the laptop is a few years old now and feels sluggish by modern standards.
How can I find out what cpu's are compatible? From what I've gathered so far (I'm probably completely wrong) it should obviously be from the c2d family, the fsb should be the same (800mhz) and the voltage also?
So it seems like the best I can upgrade it to is a T9500? Or do I have other options?
