Re: T70 with Quad Core i7 mobo for T6x is coming!!

Same here. I had no startup problems with older BIOSes and the generic ps2 driver. Now it seems keyboard+trackpoint at least keep working after sleep, but I usually need to boot up twice to get everything to work and sometimes even need to plug in an external mouse just to click that restart button....

Re: T70 with Quad Core i7 mobo for T6x is coming!!

First I just used Throttlestop's single setting to detemine whether -50 mv was stable and now I use -50 in the BIOS on both slice and unslice. I don't know what these mean though.

Re: T70 with Quad Core i7 mobo for T6x is coming!!

You should really try undervolting. I'm now running -125 mv on the CPU and it is stable and I also use Throttlestop to undervolt the iGPU with -50 mV and temps are very reasonable now.

Re: T70 with Quad Core i7 mobo for T6x is coming!!

I have a laser thermometer, but it doesn't work well on metallic surfaces. I could try putting some thermo-resistant vinyl tape on top, but first I'm away for a week.

"Thermal cameras arent very expensive nowadays. I think you can get one for 50$." where? how? the ones I see are at least $250.

Re: T70 with Quad Core i7 mobo for T6x is coming!!

I'd love to help you but I have no thermal camera. Is there a cheap way? And a new Bios is out. Now the backlight turns off when I close the lid.. still no sleep though. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ksevvft70w5uloi/T70_BIOS_170612.rar?dl=0 The annoying thing about this problem is that sleep via Fn+F4 o...

Re: T70 with Quad Core i7 mobo for T6x is coming!!

My heatpipes do get extremely hot to the touch when the CPU reaches 90 degrees. Certainly not 90 degrees, but too hot to keep your fingers on them. Now I'm undervolting even more. -120 mV still seems to be ok. I read that laptops with the same cpu can sometimes even manage -150mV, but it probably al...

Re: T70 with Quad Core i7 mobo for T6x is coming!!

My large heatpipe looks good. In fact it doesn't even look modified, seems very well done. I my opinion having that solid block of copper between the cpu and the heatpipes isn't great. The heatpipes should be closer to the cpu for better results. However the real issue I'm seeing is that I don't thi...

And I checked the Windows Event Viewer on my X62 and unfortunately it is showing the same error while closing the lid and battery stuff still works fine.

Re: T70 with Quad Core i7 mobo for T6x is coming!!

I looked at your frame modification picture again. I think you missed removing the lower strut above the 4 VRMs. That probably means your frame isn't properly sitting on the motherboard and that's why you needed to remove more material on top. However I recommend you remove that strut as well becaus...

Re: T70 with Quad Core i7 mobo for T6x is coming!!

Jacky replied to me that temps should be below 85 degrees and that my heatsink is probably not sitting correctly on the die. I don't think so and thanks to your shared temperatures I'm even more confident mine is making good contact and lower temps in my opinion are not possible without slowing down...

Re: T70 with Quad Core i7 mobo for T6x is coming!!

Have you used liquid metal before? You need to be extremely careful! I use heat resistant vinyl tape (3m/scotch super 33+) to mask the contacts on the cpu die in case any metal gets spilled. If it touches contacts, the cpu probably is destroyed and in this case the whole board. People do this to ali...

Re: T70 with Quad Core i7 mobo for T6x is coming!!

Thank you for the reply. It's great to know the lid problem isn't just happening for me! I did write to Jacky about it in the meantime. I'll share any info I get here. For windows7 it seems Hope wrote a modified ACPI driver. I can download it, but I can't get it to install in windows 10. How are you...

Re: T70 with Quad Core i7 mobo for T6x is coming!!

Oh and some more info after I read through your posts again. I had no problems seating the heatsink. It doesn't look so great and you really need to make sure to remove material at the right spots. There is now a manual on the lcdfans page on facebook. There's also two manuals on 51nb.com. There are...

Re: T70 with Quad Core i7 mobo for T6x is coming!!

Hi Seggybop, I also bought a board and modified a Frankenpad to become my T70. I would very much like to compare some results. You are the only person outside China I found so far who has received their board. My temps are also high, but somewhat acceptable. I ended up using liquid metal on the heat...
