I guess you should switch back to your older processor. Please tell me what you do exactly with your laptop. Do you game? The SSD is good, as it helps reduce heat, as unlike HDD's, they don't don't spin. But the max heat of the T9900 is a whopping 105 degrees Celsius. Ouch! And the P7450 uses (at max) 10 watts less than the P9900. You should try buying Arctic Silver and applying it. There are cases that report a whopping result of 30 less degrees Celsius than normal.
