Well.. I don't know about a HUGE performance increase but you now have a CPU that's been chastised because of a extremely rare bug and the OS automatically cripples it.

You'll need to use the TLB disable tool to get full speed.

You should have stuck with what you had until you could afford to update the entire machine, especially if you were running them at stock speeds.
