Macaholic, a member of the 123Macmini forums, has upgraded the 1.66GHz Core Duo processor in his Mac mini with a Core 2 Duo Merom running at 2.16GHz. "I've got your 14 stage pipeline and 4MB of L2 cache shared between two cores featuring a direct L1 to L1 cache transfer system, right here! Right now!" writes Macaholic. He also posted scores from Xbench 1.2 in OS X and SiSoft Sandra 2007 in Windows XP Pro, and the numbers look impressive.

Macaholic also hooked his Mac mini up to a Kill-A-Watt meter to test power consumption and posted the following results:

Yonah T2300
  Off 01 watts
  Boot 29 watts
  MacOS X/Win XP only 20 watts
  MacOS X/Win XP with 2 Folding@home CLI clients 37 watts

Merom T7400

  Boot 41 watts
  MacOS X/Win XP only 21 watts
