Specs: Windows XP
hi, I own acer 5720 travelmate laptop, CPU is T5270 (core 2 duo 1,4GHz), the chipset is Intel GM965.

Can someone please list all CPUs compatible with this chipset?

I want to upgrade the CPU and also wanted to ask what are the potential issues of that (in terms of cooling etc)

what is the fastest/best CPU this chipset will support?

thanks

If u trying to play modern games, upgrading cpu won't add anything, anyway look for t7300 or t7500, but in my opinion u are wasting your hard earned $$$.

You may also run into overheating issues and if the upgrade chip has different voltage requirements you probably won't be able to set them due to limited BIOS options.

It never ceases to amaze me how many folks buy a laptop and then want the performance and upgradeability of a desktop.

The graphics is more important than the CPU and you can't change that.

here is the specs for the same type of laptop (travelmate 5720) but with T7500 cpu (2.2GHz)

my question:

would I be able to replace 1.4GHz with 2.2GHz as all the other specification (chipset, graphics etc seem to be the same) ?

I don't know. You should be asking Acer that question. What do you hope to accomplish? Most of the time laptop chips are not even running at their full speed anyway.
