Re: W530 For Light Gaming and School Work

Yea I have the w530 with the k2000m. I actually overclocked it with msi afterburner and it can play any game I want but usually on the lowest setting. It really matters what game you play. But yes for gaming it’s totally useable

My take ? These machines are lovely typewriters but not much more nowadays. Stick with PM 735, which is in my experience the coolest-running Dothan of them all.
Yea I agree. Don’t think I’ll do it. Seems too risky

What is truly the best cpu you can put in a t42?

You technically could, but you would need to solder two pins together on the phase-locked loop to get it to work. Don't forget the requirement of underclocking your RAM modules down to DDR266 speeds (266.66 x 1.33 = DDR355), you'll need that as the phase-locked loop modification overclocks the RAM ...

What is truly the best cpu you can put in a t42?

I have just bought myself a t42. I had one a few years ago and I liked it. But I got locked out of the bios by the supervisor password and ended up taking the good parts off of it and throwing the rest. Anyway, the one I have bought has a Pentium m 735.

Well said. :thumbs-UP:

Man I’m sorry. I can’t believe I went off on you like that. It’s probably not the first time it’s happened to you(and it’s probably been much worse).

WTB: I7 3940xm

Anyone have a 3940xm they want to sell? The ones on ebay would take a month to get here and are a bit pricey imo.

Thanks,

Caleb

Just Bought a W530!

I just overclocked the quadro! Lol. I maxed the core clock and uped the memory clock +135. Here’s a picture https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180701/cdc63ab526966f39bcffb9fcef06f81b.jpg I believe max temp is around 80c? So I’m safe. I’m not going any higher. Making me nervous. I need to liquid meta...
