Handbrake didn't work either. The video file stopped at the same point it did with visual hub.

They shouldn't be. Both conroe and Merom are Core2duo cores. They should be the same speed. Or if anything the conroe may be a touch faster.





Conroe's are 64 bit as well.

Or is it soldered on the board? If you can replace it, will the motherboard in the imac, the core duo model, support a core2duo processor?
