Re: X220 FHD Upgrade?

I'd love to make a video on how to do that, but that would require unmodded motherboard and some assistance with the camera. I'll be installing this mod for some local buyers. We'll see.

Re: X220 FHD Upgrade?

Nitrocaster, did you already have any contact with the custom clearance? Is there a problem with your package? I don't think that nearly one month processingtime is normal :?

Sorry for annoying questions, but I'm so hyped for the mod :D

@nitrocaster, did you notice a higher cpu temp/a louder fan with the FHD screen attached? Because if i plug in an external FHD monitor via VGA, the fan turns up within seconds.

Thank you, i removed it with a blade, it seems that everything is still working without problems.
