Re: X9000 - is it worth it?

I have reduced fan speed on both systems.

Re: X9000 - is it worth it?

I have no experience with soldering. Moreover, frankie is very cold now. The highest frequency is 2.3GHz, but it's not a problem for me.

Re: X9000 - is it worth it?

Yes, system is stable, but 0,725V is for lowest multiplier and FSB 200 MHz. For undervolting i use IBM_ECW and VID4.

So, real volatge is 913 - 200 = 713 mV

Re: X9000 - is it worth it?

Hi, I think the best processor for the T601 is the T9900. It offers similar performance to the X9000, but run much cooler and can be undervolted from 0.9 to 0.725V with pinmod.

Re: How much can you undervolt your T61 gpu?

All units with the nvs 140m graphics chip I undervolted to 0.95V witout ASPM stable. At lower voltage BSOD occurred. In the last time I have noticed the unstability of the graphics card driver. That's why I tried several different drivers. It is best to use the latest drivers from Lenovo 296.88 or d...

Re: T60 hardware mod to undervolt CPU below 0.95V [updated +photos]

You tried a processor in another board, if the works with a lower voltage (0.85-0.95)? Can't it be a better processor that handles these lower voltages? I use IBM_ECW to undervolt a processor, i think this is better than Throttlestop or NHC.

Re: T60 hardware mod to undervolt CPU below 0.95V [updated +photos]

This is very interesting, I would say there is another possibility to change the hardware voltage of the processor. It looks similar to adjusting to increase the power of the processor described in this thread https://thinkpad-forum.de/threads/132011-HowTo-Mehr-Power-f%C3%BCrs-X-und-T-Pinmod-an-X61(...

Re: T60 recommended SSD

Try to find SSD drives that use MLC memory chip, like Kingston KC400, OCZ(Toshiba) Vector 180, Crucial M500 or Samsung 850 Pro. They have a longer life than new SSDs that use SLC and TLC chip memory. These SSD drives are more expensive and can sometimes be bought at local outlets. Recently I managed...

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

Hello, I had the same problem a few years ago. I managed to solve it by using the CCleaner program to clean registry and remove the CMOS battery. If that does not help, try uninstalling the PowerManager with the drivers and using a different version of PWRM.
