FS: [EU] T601 Frankenpad - 15" Boe-Hydis UXGA, T9300, Intel X3100, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD

Hi folks, This is my backup Frankenpad which has been sitting on my shelf for years now. I am using a X230 as my daily driver nowadays, and using my main frankenpad less and less often, I figured there is no point to keep this anymore, so I am making an attemp to sell this to someone here who unders...

Sudden death of a great condition X60T battery

Hi folks, I have been using this genuine X60T battery for a couple of months now, I got it in very good condition, with 3+ hours of discharge time. Unfortunately, when I was trying to boot my X601T up yesterday from battery, the laptop could not power up anymore. After plugging in the charger, the i...

Re: X61T motherboard in X60T chassis, and vica versa

Thanks for the encouragement folks, I did the swap and I can confirm the mobos seem to be exact matches, so you can swap them with no problem :thumbs-UP:

X61T motherboard in X60T chassis, and vica versa

Hi folks, Apologies if this has been covered before, I searched for the solution but could not find a definitive answer. I finally scored a cheap x61t, and I would like to take its motherboard into my beautiful SXGA+ X60t. I know that the recommended way to go about this is to switch the whole botto...

Re: T61 with T9300 - clock multiplier drops to X4 from X12.5

Yes, embedded firmware is 1.08. I will get another t9300 in a couple of weeks time, and already got another two 4:3 T61 motherboards, will swap the ssd and see if there is a difference. Till then I will use TS whenever I need to. :)

Re: T61 with T9300 - clock multiplier drops to X4 from X12.5

With bios factory reseted, I keep getting the frequncy drop :( PCI bus & express PM disable did not help either. However, I think with the default settings I keep getting this multiplier drop more than with the settings I had before, but that might be just an optical illusion :D Thanks all, whats ne...

Thanks storm-chaser. I attached my bios config as I had till now http://hixon.hu/frankenpad/t9300bios.jpg as you see I tried to set everything in order to avoid this clock multiplier drop. When I disabled speedstep, something interesting happened. I had my CPU locked with 6X multiplier (1200Mhz) and...

Re: T61 with T9300 - clock multiplier drops to X4 from X12.5

Yes, that's correct, when I turn on Throttlestop with a set multiplier 12.5X, this whole frequency drop thing is fixed. However I would like to understand why my CPU does this, as this seems far from being normal. Yeah, the PM stuff could be the reason, but I have the PM driver installed and I have ...

Re: T61 with T9300 - clock multiplier drops to X4 from X12.5

Thanks Screamer. I noticed a couple of things while playing with this throttlestop. Unfortunately, when I unticked BD HOTPROC, nothing changed, my clock multiplier dropped the same way (down to 4x). However, when I set a clock multiplier to 12.5(should be the nominal) the throttlestop could overwite...

Everest reported 64C for the North Bridge where the X3100 is integrated at the moment when my clock dropped, doesn't seem particularly high to me.

Hi all, I got this T601 Frankenpad w T61 & X3100 mobo (middleton bios) and I always had this issue that under load (especially when playing an old game, or watching HD movie) my cpu clock multiplier drops down to 4X (w 200fsb that goes 800Mhz) from 12.5X (2500Mhz). When this happens I need to stop t...

So there are 2 good BIOS options now. The one listed here (on german TP forum, obv. without quadcoreAPIC) and the amanins...

Re: Install a 1066MHz FSB CPU on T61 (including Core 2 Quad)

I would like to do the mod, so I can put a T9550 into my frankenpad, but the cpu will arrive in 4 weeks. As Ive just ripped apart my T61 it would be convenient to do the mod now and even flash the new bios. However, after modifying the mobo and flashing the bios will my current T7100 work? or do I h...

T60 CPU upgrade to T7200-T7600

Heya,

another silly question here. Does every single T60 motherboard support fully T7200,T7400,T7600 or just specific models?

Thank you.
