WTB: T430/T420 parts

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.

Think i'm gonna stick with mx4 in my machines though.

WTB: (EU) T430 w/dGPU barebone

Found locally. Looking for a T430 with a dGPU. I'd prefer a barebone unit as i have all the parts but i'll take what i can get. Its slim pickings around here on T430s. Most of them have integrated graphics only. Could survive with that but i'll check here first. Presentable units please, but wear is...

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

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.

(Found) WTB: T400 and T61 parts (EU Only)

Hi,

Looking for a T400 bottom and possibly a frame, gonna double check on the latter.

And a T61 keyboard. Preferred layouts are Swedish/Nordic, US English (Or Hebrew) or Hungarian. In that order.

Due to unreasonable 'Guvmint Theft i'd prefer an EU only seller.

Turns out you cant drop them from any height... One very dirty workshop rig that took a dive from a lorry cabin. Still works fine. It seems however the keyboard is messed up. Seems like it ripped the stud right off and its loose. And i've got a dozen dead keys and stuck key warning on boot. https://...

I have at least one Q9100 processor here - so I could make another T400 if you want. Might be interested in that depending on the price. I was mainly looking for a libreboot/core flashed t400. I would probably make due with one of the X9100s i have laying around. But its the libreboot/core flashing...

If you want to go the cheap route it is always an alternative, but know that refunds are warrantly doesnt exist in China. I can't promise you that they send you a CPU as good as mine...

Re: Lenovo G580 CPU upgrade

Fairly certain it can take a i7-3612. I have a i7-3610 in my Edge E530 with the same chipset. Its operating under a barely controlled meltdown so gi with the 3612 instead. It runs cooler.

It takes ivy bridge fine. No issues if you have the newest bios. My old G580 has a i3-3110m.
