Re: x61s L7500 overclock by installing dell 1705 wifi card

Mine are currently 286 Mhz and 323 Mhz respectively and an overclocked X61s crashes with that RAM DIMM. But if I try to lower one or more of those two values with S...

Which grey wire is the wireless antenna wire ?

Hi. On the wireless card there is a grey wire on the left and the black antenna wire goes on the right. Changing screens and my new screen comes with two grey wires: light grey and dark grey. Which of those two greys goes on the left side of the wireless card? Thanks.

What is this little extra fan for on my X61 ?

Hi. I have to X61 laptops and one of them has a small fan (in addition to the CPU fan assembly) just to the left of the modem. The X61 with the extra fan is a T7300. The one without the extra fan is a T8100.

Re: x61s L7500 overclock by installing dell 1705 wifi card

i would like to do this mod on my X61s. I get the pin connecting piece and the Dell wifi card. What else is needed to overclock? The OP mentioned an upgraded BIOS? Will this mod work with the Middleton BIOS? Other than some BIOS upgrade, what are the other steps, if any?

Hi. I just did an LED backlight swap on my X61s. Sooo much brighter and whiter. But I do get a ripple pattern on the bottom of the screen from the individual LEDs (as opposed to the original tube). Any techniques to mitigate that ripple pattern?
