CPU swap from T7700 to T9500 on iMac 7.1 EMC 2133
I have an old 2007 iMac 7.1 standing around in the attic and wanted to give it a new go. I’ve already maxed out the RAM to 6GB and equipped it with a 750GB SSD which worked quite well.
I also wanted to upgrade the CPU and maybe try and get Mojave running. There have been reports of successful upgrades to a C2D T9300, so I figured I might try my luck with a T9500 SLAYX which I happened upon. I went through all the hoops and swapped the CPU just fine, but after reassembly the machine wouldn’t boot. It would power up and the optical drive would initialize - but nothing after that (black screen).
So I’m wondering if the T9500 is incompatible with my machine or did I get a faulty CPU? And if the T9500 is incompatible, (why) would the T9300 be?
Thanks so much,

Your systems specs: iMac 20" 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo - iMac7,1
The T9300 which I am using here on this iMac7,1 draws less power and with the Dosdude1.com patcher runs High Sierra happily - I also upgraded the Airport card so that it supports 80211ac ...
