    It would make more sense to put this information into one of the Guides and reference that if people have questions, so you might want to think about doing that. Regardless, thanks. :)

    It's not that hard - it's a basic wiki. Just read up on how to create one and you'll be cooking with gas in no time!

    Nice one! :) Now err... who wants to do the Woodcrest guide to make a full house ;)

    EDIT: Put some pretty basic info on Conroe and Woodcrest.

    Might want to post some idea of what computers will house it, and when.. That's what most people wonder about. Of course, it's all speculation still...

    A full house? How do you figure? If we did that, then we would need to ensure there are guides for Kentsfield, Cloverton, Penryn, Tigerton, Yorkfield, Perryville, Dunnington... Need I go on? :p :cool:

    In that case we may not just see a CPU swap but a rather quick Chipset upgrade from Apple, been awhile since that happened.
