HI, i have a compaq presario c740em laptop with a T5450 processor and have got hold of a T8300 which I'm 99% sure it is just a straight swap with no hassle, but wanted to ask on here to be totally sure.

Any help will be great thanks.

Also my laptop takes maximum 2GB but i have got 3GB in mine with no problems, should i take 1GB out to be safe or just leave it?

Thanks in advance.

✔ Best Answer
Centrino = combination of hardware (CPU, chipset and wifi).
T8300 is penyn-3m which will ruin centrino setup but if the BIOS manage to recognize it will be huge boost. I can't find the CPU support list for your system, u have to try it.

I have looked in the parts list for my laptop (c700) all models are in it, and my motherboard is the same for the t8300, i will try it and let you know.

Well it turns out the processor was a T7250 not a T8300 my friend got it wrong, but the T7250 works great and i can see a big difference when playing 1080p movies from my fujifilm hs10 camara. as they never played before. it has put my processor score up from 4.7 to 4.9 and my ram from 4.5 to 4.8. which is always good.
