Rate, hate, suggest upgrades.

I think this is as far as I can really go with this Elitebook. Still running strong and it feels like a fully modern PC. I just got done reapplying some thermal paste to the CPU and GPU, I was getting CPU temps up around 75C under light load, that was no bueno. It hasn't broken 49C since reapplying the paste, feels good man.

I don't know if I've ever seen a Speccy for an older laptop that didn't list a "generic PnP monitor" for the attached screen.

I've never tried running a multi-CPU setup. I always get a bit jealous of people with multiple Xeon systems, but I don't really have any use for all of those cores.

For a personal computer I have something more pedestrian and I think that's the way most people should go. Very few applications can take advantage of a dual socket machine and the ones that can aren't really used by the average Joe.
Almost 80GB/s of throughput hasnt harmed me, yet. When I get more RAM I might go for 1866.
Im thinking of either a 5820k or a 1650v3 for my personal machine, actually. We shall see what black Friday brings.

Well, I see 2 4770k's on Ebay for $250 and $267 respectively. You wouldn't have to switch sockets or motherboards or anything like that, just swap the chip out.


They're claiming it's new and unused, but the packaging is a little bit fucked up. Even if you don't believe that, you can buy a protection plan along with it that will cover you in case it is actually is a dead/shit chip. If you're trying to save money here, and you want a quick upgrade now, then this is going to be the way to do it. Otherwise, maybe you can find a good deal on Black Friday/Cyber Monday.

So our CPUs are both mobile but from different generations. Your i5 is newer and more power efficient, but is a dual-core, four thread CPU with a base clock of 2.6GHz and a turbo clock of 3.3GHz. My i7 is a quad-core, eight thread CPU with a base clock of 2.4GHz and a turbo clock of 3.5GHz.

The two CPUs perform roughly evenly in single-thread applications, but my i7 is much more powerful in multi-thread applications.
