Re: New IPS FHD Upgrade Kit for thinkpad T420 T430 ,And T430S T420S

Errrrr just wondering. If it's your own design and firmare why don't you change the embedded SPD for some better or cheaper panels? Right now even B140HAN02 has came out? And how about WQHD kits? Are you able to come up with your own design? :wink: It's okay, Javi's design has pretty much became a p...

FS: X1 Yoga (1st) i5 6300U/ 8GB/ 256GB/ WQHD/ 4G LTE/ W10 Pro/ Stylus $699+shipping

I got a X1 Yoga 1st gen at a decent price. However it has a few imperfections and I decided to get rid of it and not to have it in my pile of collections The imperfection is one tiny dent on the top cover and two scratch on the bottom cover. Most ppl won't even notice these. (I can provide pics if n...

Re: LF: HP 8770w with Dream Color or FS: MSI GTX 1070 mxm $550

I have some doubts it will work w/DC screen. However, would you be so kind to uncover the rest of the topic about the mod? I've got a non-DC unit I have refurbed lately and such an option may come in my interests. Is it the Max-Q version or the standard one? Standard one, produced by MSI, more info...

As described. Prefer better conditions but all conditions are considered w.r.t price.

Re: T420s/T430s WQHD - Install/troubleshoot/Picture thread

I found a post on reddit which says that a WQHD mod on T430s causes blinking with a dual channel ram. So I removed one of the rams (only one left) and the screen works well. This problem was reported about 9 months ago on the reddit, but it seems like it still persists even for RMS's new mod kit. T...

Thanks for the info! You have helped me a lot during this Chinese New Year frenzy!
