Re: 4th Batch of X210 Available

In a surprising turn of event (I was also caught off guard waking up this morning), Jacky is no longer allowed to sell these boards. He has also announced on 51nb that he will do no more dealings with the said forum. The announcement can be read here , and my posts here and on Reddit are also consid...

I want to report two more things: 1. It seems that I can't change the pwm frequency neither in windows using this http://tomeko.net/software/IntelPWMControl/ nor in Linux using intel registers. 2. I don't really understand whether TDP-UP is working or not, as in Cinebench-R15 I have less performanc...

Review of the X210 (Translation)

Took me a good 30-40 hours to translate, proofread (and fact check), and typeset this review. However, I should note that since this is a review from a 51nb moderator. Therefore, while the original review is quite professionally done, it can be a little biased. I’ve worked on this translation with t...

Re: FS: [OFFICIAL CONTACT] 51nb's 4th Batch X210 [*PIC*]

It must be easy to quantify, since Intel CPUs report their power dissipation to the software. It can be displayed by tools like `throttled --monitor`. For instance, my X210 with i7-8550U CPU at 92°C with a stock X201 cooler at 25°C ambient temperature during `sysbench cpu run --threads=9` load diss...

Re: FS: [OFFICIAL CONTACT] 51nb's 4th Batch X210 [*PIC*]

How much power does the modded cooler dissipate compared to the original one? I can't really quantify this for you, but I have compiled the Q&A with the information that I've seen on the 51nb forum - and compared with Notebookcheck's reviews. Specifically, if we look at the Cinebench R15 multi-core...

Could you please resize the image or make a thumbnail? Unfortunately the forum software does not auto-resize images and at 1500 pixels wide is stretches out the page on resolutions of 1920x and below.
Resized to 1000px wide, is that better?

My best guess is the copper oxidizing over time. I noticed this on a T42 heatsink vs a T500 heatsink too.
It would make sense except the heatsink was new on my W500, and a side view from Notebookcheck seems to confirm the same colour difference.

W500 Heatsink, "Paler" than T61p's?

Having switched to a W500 from a T61p, I've noticed that my W500's heatsink (45N5492) is much "paler", or "less red/bronze coloured" than the T61p's (42W2820). While the T61p's heatsink appears red and bronze while viewing from the vent, the W500's looks gold or even a bit silver. This doesn't seem ...
