Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

It's the motherboard that sets the frequency not the Cpu

If you don't mind me asking, Why do you want to do this? You get 100Mhz base and 2 more meg of cache and hyperthreading.

 

I guess if you are doing multimedia rendering etc I can understand it will give you a slight performance boost, but for gaming you would be lucky to pull 1 more fps on average. Your better off overclocking the bajeus out of the chip you already have.

 

If you do end up doing this, I might be interested in your i5.
