Re: x61s L7500 overclock by installing dell 1705 wifi card

Thanks for your reply, it explained detail, looks like if old intel wifi card weld two pins together, it can work the same way.
the dell wifi card heat performance is better than the intel wifi card.
Now the right palm is not headache anymore, change out the dell wifi card is worth the "2 bucks".

Re: x61s L7500 overclock by installing dell 1705 wifi card

it is controversal still so far, it is belivered that two pin on dell card connected and the change may impact on cpu clock logic. the reason is not 100% sure yet. many people bought the dell1506/1705 using 2 bucks, give it a try, many SUCceed and show cpuz score。 667/800meory is not comparable,.but...

x61s L7500 overclock by installing dell 1705 wifi card

Although x61s with L7500 is pretty old machine, but it is very classic one, recently I were trying to do some search on the L7500 CPU overclock threads after replacement of SSD/Bios upgrade. I found some interesting threads regarding somebody accidentally overclocked the CPU from 1.6g to 2.4g by cha...

T60P "official" FireGL V5250 video card drive for WIN7

I have owned t60p for years and I loved this old and sturdy machine, and I upgraded the T60p to Win7 for years already, but there was no "official" FireGL v5250 video card drive available for Win7 anywhere in AMD website, so I had to use the drive for "Vista" version under Win7, recently I do the fr...

Re: Overheating.. again. Thanks, Obama

Thanks, both... Yes, there is heat blowing out of the vents. And, correct on the thermal paste. I did my best to transfer that from my parts computer, but I guess I'll just have to pick some up and do it right. My only issue there is that I don't understand why, if that is the problem, it would onl...

Re: Overheating.. again. Thanks, Obama

Hi, Matt, You said the fan is working, can you feel the exhaust port(the copper louver) on the left upper corner? is it warm? I am asking because even if the fan is working, but if there is bad conductivity either defective heat sink or bad conductivity between the heat sink and Cpu/Gpu, in that cas...

Re: My Frankenpad Conversion and Heat Sink Mods [+PICS]

For the 14.1" 16:10 lappies, there is an updated cooler available, which doesn't need any modification in order to fit. They are not so cheap, but they do have the 'updated' fan installed as well. Do you have a part # or source/link for this updated cooler? My T60p is 14.1inch 4:3 standard screen, ...

Re: My Frankenpad Conversion and Heat Sink Mods [+PICS]

Why did I find out this thread so late, I was doing the modification exactly the way as "The ultimate combo is a T61 discrete graphics heatsink with the T500 fan installed, just like bmwman91 did. " , Now I am very happy regarding the heat performance on my old T60P machine(14.1 inch, T7600, V5250)...

Peptate was talking about his own T61p, not about a T60.

Sincerely apologize on this. I thought peptate was suggesting upgrading the CPU for T60 at the first beginning, sorry for my crappy English.

Re: T60: Getting the best GPU termal performance

My T61p originally came with a T7700 (Memrom) and was replaced with a T8300 (Penryn) for $30 bucks a year ago if I remember correctly. 65nm to 45nm gave me a noticeable reduction in heat. Replaced the thermal paste with Prolimatech PK-1. Now idles at ~38C idle and 45C lightly browsing the interwebs...

Re: T60: Getting the best GPU termal performance

Could someone post a pic or more description of these thermal pads? I had my T60 apart yesterday, due to a noisy fan. I wanted to see if adding a drop of oil to the fan motor would help at all, before I considered getting a new fan. I saw some grey pads, wondering if that's them? To try and fix the...

Re: My Frankenpad Conversion and Heat Sink Mods [+PICS]

3 weeks ago I installed the 45N4592 (discrete) heatsink in my T61 FrankenPad. It is allmost a straight swap in, you only need to remove 3 small fins on the top. However, after boot up I noticed some keys of my keyboard not working. It were some keys in the middle, the T, Y, G, etc. I figured I didn...
