Re: X62 problems, quirks, and fixes

To Whitelabel: Thanks for your instructions. I have succeeded installing a MC7710 into the mSata slot. I would never have attempted or even come by this idea if not for your pioneering. Do you know the speed of the internal USB? I read somewhere that your MC7455 needs USB 3 to reach the CAT6 speeds....

Re: X62 problems, quirks, and fixes

I'm using Sierra MC7455 with this external SIM holder: ( _http://www.ebay.com/itm/Usim-sim-card-socket-slot-solderless-holder-For-mini-pci-e-module-3G-WWAN-Modem-/391659521304 ) Thanks.

Right now my upper mpcie slot has the LTE-A modem (with the SIM holder) in it.
Nice job!

Do you have a modem with a sim holder on it, or did you attach it somewhere else? Which modem are you using?

Re: T70 with Quad Core i7 mobo for T6x is coming!!

And the main question - how to get it from outside of China???
I ordered the X62 last year, and it worked out pretty well. I used an agent called tiptrans. You pay to tiptrans, and they buy the goods for you and ship it.

I think you can expect some quirks. On the whole im very happy with mine.

Re: X62 problems, quirks, and fixes

Looks like PC7 works in windows as well. You have to update the Realtek GBe driver as the one built into Windows won't allow the PC7 state. I went with the latest from Realtek: http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=13&PFid=5&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false I als...

Re: X62: First impressions

Hm, does changing the TDP adjust the performance level of the CPU? So far I haven't figured out how to control it, assuming that's even possible. It is found in the cpu settings in the BIOS. The settings are Down, Up and Nominal. Passmark cpu benchmark scores are 4300 for Down and 4900 for both Up ...

Re: X62: First impressions

I can confirm that the fan noise is quite loud. The real problem is though that it comes on more than it should. From what i understand, they are working on a BIOS update that tunes the fan speed and also fixes the two dead keys on certain keyboard layouts. I set my TDP to down in BIOS and it might ...

It's still for sale, so no worries.

Does anyone know what is the minimum batch they can do? Now is 119 sold, and I think they are aiming for 200.
So there's a big chance it will be cancelled.

A little nervous wether they can handle the 6 week delivery from 51NB.

Also I put in my 51NB forum id in note to seller. I think that is required.
