Re: Previous thermal management issues with w500?

Funny story. Noticed that without throttlestop the x9100 is stuck at 1598mhz. Didnt see it until now because i was using throttlestop, but it cant seem to regulate the speed correctly. To be fair, i should be lucky it boots at all since i'm still running the factory 2009 bios due to the fact i dont ...

Re: Previous thermal management issues with w500?

Yeah, i ordered a new heatsink/fan. I repasted it three times at this point, with brand new mx4. I also swapped the W500 keyboard back in (first thing i did was put my T61 keyboard in it) thinking maybe it sucks in air via the keyboard like HPs but there was no difference in temps. I'm thinking this...

Re: Previous thermal management issues with w500?

I did repaste, temps changed minimally. The difference is within what i would call margin of error.

The strange thing is that if bios controls the fan, idle is extremely low, but load is on the thermal shutdown limit. If tpfan controls it, idle is high but load hovers around 85 celcius.

Re: Previous thermal management issues with w500?

Hmm, there is an update related to fan speed control. I wonder if that could be it. It runs like an absolute dog with the bios control, but keeps it normal with the tpfancontrol snart setting.

Im hovering around 108-110 celcius on gpu load. Cpu load is around 70 celcius.

Previous thermal management issues with w500?

I have thermal management issues on my "new" w500 that i cant seem to solve. However since i dont have a working battery i cant flash the bios. Running bios version 2.07 atm. Considering the mfg date, this is probably the bios it shipped with. Could this be the cause? Like the horrible power and the...

WTB: Batteries, X200 and W500

Need good genuine batteries for a X200 and a W500. The X200 needs to be good.

But its fine if the W500 only has 30-ish minutes run time. Only need to be able to move it from one station to another.

I'm in sweden.

I ride a -18 Romet Adventure 125 and a -07 Piaggio MP3 250.

I mostly ride the MP3 due to extremely poor roads where i live. Dropped the romet twice, while the three wheeled MP3 seems to handle it fine.

Looking for a preferably high end x200. P8700/P8800 if possible. Can deal with low end if there arent any available.

Big plus if its librebooted but not a requirement. Barebone unit is fine, i have loads of parts.

Need it shipped to sweden.

Gonna swap a quad into my new T430 so i'm looking for the "good" dgpu heatsink. I think its the one with the toshiba fan if i remember correctly. Further research pointed med to FRUs 04W3269, 0B41088 and 04W3270. Also looking for a T420 keyboard to swap in. Prefer NMB with Swedish or Danish layout....

Re: T25 with Quad-Core CPU and UHD LCD Panel

Yeah, i'm sure if you do it right it would do fine. But seems like an silly risk to me after seeing what happens when you screw up.

Absolutely insane. I love it.

Cringe moment when i read about the liquid metal. I've been tasked with repairing the results after somone incorrectly put liquid metal in a laptop. There was liquid metal everywhere and it shorted everything. Dayumm. Hate that stuff.

I was looking for a dGPU motherboard, so a machine in bad cosmetic condition would've made sense, but from the US its just not economically feasible. Thanks anyway, mate.
