whats the highest supported merom cpu speed for mac mini.

I want to upgrade and not sure whats the fastest merom I could put in the mini for it too work.

anyone done a the 2.33 merom yet.

newegg has a very expensive 2.33 merom for like 600.00 I think

thanks in advance

2.33 GHz

The fastest chip right now, offers plenty of speed, but is rather pricey. :)

I see (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#.22Merom.22.2C_.22Merom-2M.22_.28standard-voltage.2C_65_nm.29) that there are model up to T7800 (2,6GHz) now with Socket P or M (always listed as FCBGA6).

Are these CPUs suitable for a Mac mini?

TIA

I would have thought that the 800MHz bus would provide an issue. If its down clocked to 667MHz then you are no better off than a T7600, perhaps worse as the bus/core ratio is lower. I haven't seen any Socket M T7800 in the wild but I haven't looked too hard.

Thank you flopticalcube, you right right... I missed the difference in FSB frequency!

Talking about a a Core 2 Duo T7600, does somebody knows the differences between a SL9SD(B2) and a SL9SJ(B2). What does the sSpec number refers to? Can I either opt for one of the two?

TIA note bold and caps are to show importance not shout.

NO you need the one with pins.

i believe the sl9sd is correct give me a minute for a link

go to page 13 from below

if you look at the thumb nail you will see the t7600 sl9sd notice it says it is micro-fcpga the p means pins GOOD



notice the sl9sj it reads micro-fcbga the b means balls. NO GOOD


I am pretty sure I am correct not certain but 90% sure.
