Figure 1 flashing the bios,3 Memory upgrade, The new bios allowed installation of a 2GB Corsair DDR2 667 PC 5300 notebook memory bar without. problems Can be found a o Forcom Edegem under notebook memory or your nearest PC component. http www forcom be product 301825,Figure 2 Corsair 2GB DDR 2 667 notebook memory. 4 Overview of Eee Solid State replacement disks, The correct disk type is SSD Mini PCI e There are several possibilities The small fast 4GB SSD is. soldered to the motherboard and cannot be replaced easily The large slow original Phison 16GB SSD is. easy to replace With the new bios the Eee 900 now even accepts SATA disk interfaces i o IDE I found. 3 solutions worth considering, OCZ part no OCZSSDMPES 64G Can be found in Belgium at MPL Edegem but is very expensive. 263 e and not the fastest 110 MB s read 51 MB s write speed. http www mpl be products aspx id 42 sid 247, Runcore part no RCP I S7064 C Availability of this SSD only in the US or UK and recently dropped.
in price to 199 without shipment cost 133 e This SSD is the least expensive 64GB I found but. the slowest with 90 MB s read and 55 MB s write speed but no doubt still much faster than the original. Phison 16GB, http www mydigitaldiscount com SPD runcore 64gb pro sata 70mm mini pci e pcie ssd for asus eee. Super Talent, SuperTalent has several large capacity SSD s IDE as well as SATA I selected the most recent SATA. Mini2 FPM64GLSE which I believe to be one of the fastest currently available in 64GB size with 150. MB s read and 100 MB s write speed It also exists in 128GB size but this costs as much as an entire. Eee 900 I found my FPM64GLSE for 150eat PCHut in the Netherlands but unfortunately the price. has just been raised to 171ein spite of favorable US exchange rate. http www pchut nl productenv php id 145659,Figure 3 SuperTalent Sata Mini2 PCIe 64GB SSD. The SuperTalent website offers a nice overview of all available SSD models PDF format with a lot of. additional information on speeds and technology used. http www supertalent com products ssd category detail php type Netbook. 5 Replacing the hardware in the Eee PC 900, Important when opening up PC s and replacing components always touch the PC mass and components. before replacing to avoid static electricity damage. The backside cover of the Eee PC can be opened by removing 2 screws The right one is hidden under a. Eee sticker, At the bottom the memory slot can be seen If you push the two rounded clamps to the outside the.
memory bar turns upward and can be removed easily, At the top you can see the 16 GB SSD disk 70mm long with the connector on the left side When you. remove both screws on the right side of the disk with a magnetic head screwdriver to avoid dropping. the screws inside the PC the SSD rotates upwards and can also be replaced easily. Figure 4 Eee PC 900 with opened back cover,6 Overclocking the Eee PC 900. Windows XP, The default Eee 900 processor clock speed is 900 MHz On battery power it drops to 630 MHz With. http www cpp in dev eeectl you can modify several PC settings manually Starting eeectl in. XP installs an extra icon on the menu bar lower right showing the current processor temperature. Right mouse click on that icon gives you a menu where you can modify the clock speed manually stock. 630 MHz medium or full 900 MHz The menu also allows to set fan speed and display backlight. Figure 5 eeectl 0 2 4 screenshot, The program setfsb is also interesting http www13 plala or jp setfsb. As the name implies setfsb allows to modify the Front Side Bus speed of the PC and really overclock. your Eee faster than factory default Overclocking is not recommended on battery power with the original. 4400 MAh battery because it draws more power and my battery didn t like that I now have a larger. 7350 MAh battery The clock settings of the PC are controlled through the clock generator chip on the. motherboard the PLL chip, Warning writing wrong data to the PLL chip can permanently damage your PC mother.
board Make sure you first select the correct PLL chip for Eee see screenshot ICS9LPRS906CGLF. and then click Get FSB, Figure 6 setfsb 2 1 69 menu with Eee PLL selection. Default FSB speed is 400 MHz PCI express interface 100 MHz When increasing both by about 5 the. Eee remains stable 950 MHz but above 1000 MHz it becomes unstable With CPU Z you can look at. the result,Figure 7 Eee running at 950 MHz CPU Z screenshot. Unfortunately these settings are one time not written permanently in the PLL and you have to reset. them after every reboot Possibly commercial setfsb versions exists allowing to save the settings per. manently Make sure you watch processor temperature while overclocking to avoid processor damage A. useful utility is HWMonitorPro 1 08, The eee control program also exists for Linux You can compile the source yourself but Eee control also. exists as rpm package in Fedora 11 This package didn t work right away It requires manual activation. of the daemon to be studied,7 Conclusion, After bios upgrade and most of all with the much faster speed of the new Super Talent SSD one sees. how extremely the Eee was limited by slow disk speed performance Using the top command in Linux. to watch CPU consumption of the processes shows higher usage of the CPU This also confirms that. even an older Celeron M353 processor had to wait for slow disk response Even with this processor and. the SuperTalent SSD the Eee performance now feels like a normal PC Much appreciated. With this level of Eee performance no more need for stripped down Nlited XP or Linux eeedora versions. After upgrade my Eee could run the complete Fedora 11 installation and boots up in less than 1 minute. With the old 16GB disk the Eee needed more than 12 hours for a Fedora 11 update with the new 64GB. SuperTalent F11 installs in about 1 hour Need I say more. During this testcase I left the Windows XP on the 4GB fixed SSD and in dual boot installed Fedora. 11 on the new SuperTalent but with hindsight since it is so much faster it would have been better. to reinstall both OS es to the new fastest disk and leave the old fixed 4GB SSD just as additional data. volume Maybe I ll reconsider that later when installing Windows 7 on the old Eee.

Asus Eee PC 900 Upgrade Tom Alderweireldt November 30 2009 1 Introduction A mid 2008 Asus Eee PC 900 remains the one and only original mini notebook but who never wished the tiny SSD s were just a little larger or faster Many have undoubtedly tried out Nlite in XP or other tools like eeedora in Linux to save space on the tiny SSD s In addition with an old bios version such as 0806
