Greetings PPC fans! MODS: I understand this is a early intel machine, yet i find those in this forum understand the struggle and what it means to keep an older machine running, instead of telling me to simply replace it. Anyways, here is my issue. Im trying my best to keep this machine as my main laptop as i love being different from all the aluminum macbooks out there. What i am using is the machine in my Signature, a Macbook 3,1 running one of the faster C2D, 7400E at 2.2Ghz, 4Gb of Ram and yes (i got a great deal for it) a 240Gb kingston SSD! Considering it was my first laptop ever when i bought it with my parents in late 2007 and the fact it has a new battery i want to keep this old girl going. Im a first year Uni student and love this machine, however running slow leopard a lot of things trigger the Fans to go nuts. I redid the thermal grease last summer cleaning both the intel CPU and the video card. Computer was dust free inside. I was had mountain lion running as software is no longer really supported in 10.6.8 but the wifi wouldnt work at school and for now im sticking with snow leopard until i have a moment to figure out what a great forum member told me to do. I have ML installed on a different drive as i had to use MLpostfactor cause this machine wont do more then Lion and lion was terrible here. it ran too hot and laggy. So any suggestions to keep it going? i usually use word, macrumors, facebook, hotmail and dosbox. But even DOOM gets the temp to 74 degrees celcius and the fasns blast. Any advice is appreciated.
