I can get a 7502 QS for $700. Worth it to replace a Naples 2.0 7551 ? They both say 180 watt, but I bet the QS is actually faster, and cooler. I actially would replace the 24 core Naples I got for $375.

BTW, in the last 12 days my 7551 averaged 254k per day, and my 7452 averaged 312656, or the 7551 does 81% of a 7452, at least for these 12 days. Not sure if its worth the extra $700.

The big question is whether or not the mainboard which you have in mind for the upgrade supports a swap of Naples to Rome.

It is not very likely that you can get a BIOS for this board (whichever it is) with Rome support. :-( Almost all vendors of Naples boards implemented the transition to Rome via new hardware revisions of their mainboard models.
