X62 questions...

I know that the X62 boards are no longer being made. Is there a possibility of even finding one of them anymore, specifically i5-gen3 ? I'd also like to know if anyone has tried to, or succeeded, at porting these to Coreboot, like the guy with the X210.

Re: Any advantage to undervolting a 64bit/low-voltage/1.6Ghz X61s?

Thanks for pointing me to that! Unfortunately if it requires compiling, I'm out. I've never compiled anything before. I also noted that the last update to their web page is 2014. Does this mean that they have lost interest in their own project?

Re: Any advantage to undervolting a 64bit/low-voltage/1.6Ghz X61s?

Thank you for your replies and for the great details shared! The l7500 board, I have only seen it get to 50c temp. I just aquired another X60 with T7200 cpu and I've seen it go to 70c in testing. the bios is Libreboot and it's running Linux. As far as I can tell I can not undervolt it in linux, alth...

Any advantage to undervolting a 64bit/low-voltage/1.6Ghz X61s?

Recently I dug out an older Garmin GPS that I need Windows for to install maps onto this device. The dock for my three X6x macines has the required serial/rs-232-port. I haven't used Windows for years, but I found a Windows 7 disc and so I put the original spec. motherboard back into the X61s, I had...

Re: Has anyone succeeded at swapping cpus on X6x boards?

Well, that dream ended far too quickly. Yes, I wanted the 800mhz bus speed as it's noticebly faster, but obviously that won't be happening with a low voltage cpu for me, because Libreboot does not work past Merom. If it could use the Penryn cpus that would be just heaven for my low voltage cpu obses...

Re: T60/Intel Graphics Questions

@Screamer Thanks for taking the time to post all of that useful info! OK, so I'll opt for the T2400 T60 and swap to a 64-bit cpu. Undervolting, etc. is Windows only territory. My understanding is that you can't do this in Linux, which is all that I use anymore. @Annecy Thanks for posting that link, ...

Has anyone succeeded at swapping cpus on X6x boards?

I'm wanting to know if anybody has successfully swapped out a soldered to the board cpu. I have an X60 board with L7400 that I'd like to replace with slightly higher spec. L7500 cpu. I have an X61 board with L7500, but it's incompatible to Libreboot, therefore I want to swap the L7400 cpu on the Lib...

Re: T60/Intel Graphics Questions

Thanks for your reply! I looked up the T7600 cpu on thinkwiki and it seems only available on T60p. I'm researching which T60 to buy, with Intel graphics chip, as I'm wanting to change the bios to Libreboot. Maybe T60ps can be Librebooted, but I thought I read T60 boards only, somewhere. Also, I'm in...

T60/Intel Graphics Questions

Hi, i have some questions about these machines.
1) Is the T2400/32-bit CPU the only T60 that uses the Intel graphics or are there other cpus available with Intel graphics?
2)Can the 32-bit T2400 cpu be swapped out to a 64-bit cpu?
