I am considering upgrading my Coreboot'ing Thinkpad T500 with a Core2Quad Mobile Q9100 [1] (which requires some hardware modifications but is doable). My question is: Does this CPU require the microcode updates or will it run without? Practical experience from someone running this or a simular CPU from the same family (Q9000, Q9300) would be appreciated!

Cheers, Daniel
