    I tried to upgrade my mac mini to Core 2 Duo 2.0GHZ (T5750) but it didnt work. I dont think it's dead.

    After that I put the old CPU back and it's working.

    Whats wrong. It should work because it's 667MHZ. Any ideas ???

    Seems to be that isn't a Memrom, but again I could be and probably am wrong. This thread should be of some use.

    The highest CPU is the T7600 Merom. The T5750 that you tried has a 800Mhz FSB which will not work with the Intel 945 Chipset that is used in the Mini. The T7600 is a 2.33Ghz w/ 4MB of Cache.

    I misspoke on the T5750, it does have a 667Mhz FSB, but it is not a Merom.

    So the only CPU's I can use that are over 2 GHZ are T7600, T7400 and T7200 ??

    The T7200 is a 2Ghz with 4MB which is suppose to already come in the Mini. You are correct in the T7400 and T7600 are your only other options.

    Remember mini's came with everything down to a 1.5 GHZ Core Solo.

    Try going to the upgrade forum at 123Macmini.com for more help.
