Default Re: 1.86ghz vs. 2.26ghz Worth the upgrade?

On mine, it wasn't soldered in. However, there was a twist to the way it's installed. At first, I was like "how the hell do you remove the CPU from the socket?" I didn't find the lever that's usually present to remove the CPU. Instead, there's a small hex bolt that you need to turn on the side. Then the CPU comes right out. To do that, of course you need an allen wrench key. Since I didn't have one, I just used a small flathead screwdriver, lol. Works just fine with that.

*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?

Yeah those sockets does not require a lever, but a small screw.

Although, yesterday, I was suprised at one thing: An all-in-one mobo. You're supposed to have a soldered CPU. Surprisingly, ECS finally gave us a kit with a CPU, and heatsink/fan from Cooler MAster. Looks like we can upgrade those after all

wouldn't give a big difference but depending how much ram you got might. if you have 512, try upgrading it to 1gb. the cheapest way is to use windows readyboost (windows vista)

Intel i7 4770k 3.50ghz, 32gb Corsair Vengeance RAM (8x4 kit), 2 x 2TB WD Black HHD, nVidia 770GTX 4gb OC, Asus Z87-A Motherboard, running Windows 7 64 bit.
