i want to upgrade the chip as said here

"For anyone interested...I just installed a 2.0 Ghz XP-M 2600+ processor (AXMG2600FQQ4C). It works great! It does however, run a little hotter. The fan now runs on low all the time whereas before it would run only now and then. It doesn't shut down (overheat) when I put it into "always on" power setting...running at full speed, so I believe the Powernow! feature will let this setup work just fine. The new speed along with the upgrade to 1GB ram and the Hitachi 7200 rpm HD have transformed my little M5305 into a real desktop replacement! Well, except for the graphics...sigh."

i want to know if changing the chip would be hard..or a swap..and can i go more that a amd athlon 2600?

remeber its a m5305....and the motherboard is a Arima W720-K7

go down to mine and like 6 other models use the same motherboard with different processors..i want to know if amd has one better than a 2600 that will work with my motherboard....its hard for me to look because i dont understand a lot of the specific specs ans such..
