Re: Does the W520 run DDR3L Memory at 1.35V?

@thinkpadcollection I'm aware of W520/W530 CPUs, with coreboot you can run IVB CPUs in a W520 just fine though. My ram is running @1333 right now, so 1600 is not requiered for IVB. The W520 (and possible W530, not sure) could provide 1.35V for DDR3L with a resistor mod, nobody has tried yet though. ...

Re: X220 FHD Upgrade?

Ok cool, I'll ask around then. FHD is pretty much standard for the T/W520 and I'm not aware of any 15.6" QHD panels, so QHD+ is the closest match. I considered LVDS to eDP converters, but according to the W520 (Wistron Kendo 3 WS) schematics p.26, only three LVDS lanes are available. So your mod see...

Re: X220 FHD Upgrade?

Thanks for your quick reply. I would bet there is demand, including me there are definitely two W520 owners interested ;) I can ask around in the W/T520 subforums if you like? QHD+ should be possible even with HD3000/4000 and over Displayport 1.1, at least at 50Hz. Iguess only T/W530 and T430 can go...

Re: X220 FHD Upgrade?

Hi nitrocaster, just read through the whole thread, really impressive work you did there! It has been asked a couple of times if you are planning to do a 4lane mod to support higher resolution screens. From what I understand, you are not opposed to this, provided there is enough interest. Could this...

Re: Does the W520 run DDR3L Memory at 1.35V?

Just tried to run 4 x 8GB GSkill DD3L modules in my W520. Initially all seemed well, but the modules got really hot and the machine starting crashing. Memtest showed plenty of errors. Timing was CL10 at 1600mhz. I'm running coreboot though, with an IvyBridge CPU, and apparently there are some issues...
