Please find your guide to memory and CPU upgrades. Feel free to make comments and suggestions. This is a first draft. If someone with an unaltered MB1 could please download and run performance test on the MB1, I would greatly appreciate it and we can put the before after comparison in the back of the guide. www.passmark.com/ftp/petst.exe

I would also like to note that a very small temperature increase was realize, it's negligible by just about 2-3 degrees C.. CPU usuage per Expert SDR moved from about 45-50 percent down to 13-17 percent with the radio software running. The system remains extremely stable with the latest release of ExpertSDR, KUDOS to the EE software team!

Your welcome!

Here is the updated version: It contains small corrections (typos), a series of steps (easier for discussions) and 1 updated picture to better show the CPU Fan screws.

Hi, yes, our dealers are already selling the MB1 Prime, the main differences are:
- CPU - i7 instead of i5
- RAM - 16 GB instead of 8 GB
- SSD - 525 GB instead of 120 GB

MB1-PRIME has been available for a while in Europe.
WIMO in Germany quote:
Configuration of MB-1-PRIME
i7-CPU instead of i5
16 GB instead of 8 GB RAM
525GB SSD instead of 120 GB

Ask your USA dealer, NSI Communications.

Hi Arno - which processor did you buy, and does your radio get noticeably hotter? The upgrade instructions recommend using an i7-6700T, but everywhere seems to be out of stock - best regards - Peter (g3xje)

If you have a 4th generation or later MB1 with F6 or later BIOS, you can install the i7-7700t. If you have a 3rd generation MB1 you are limited to the i7-6700t. The only exception to this is if you upgrade the F5 BIOS to F6 or later.

If you are unsure of the generation / PCB revision, check with Roman before committing to the expense to avoid the risk of obtaining an incompatible CPU.

Erik.
