Can CPU for T440p work on a pc?

Hiyall,
I just built a pcNAS (desktop) from parts. The CPU is v-e-r-y slow. I have several i5 and i7 CPUs from past modification of laptops. Will they work in the desktop pc?

T440p Heat, another solution?

Hiyall, My T440p is running 'within spec' however far too warm as far as I'm concerned (~60). I am using this laptop inside a dock. The air vent on the left side is almost completely covered by the dock. There is another air vent at the back and I could modify an 'Opolar' fan to fit. Is this a worka...

Re: Pimped T440p and heat

Hiyall, I installed an 'Opolar' exhaust fan on the output vent. There was a dramatic temperature reduction. From ~80s to ~30s. Problem solved! No need for heat sinks, internal fans, etc. This is what such a cooler looks like: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61glulrnhfL._AC_UL115_.jp...

USB3.0 on T440p

I know there are no USB3.0 sockets on this machine however I managed to load drivers onto another T440p so I could use the USB3.0 sockets on the back of the attached dock. I now can't remember where I found the drivers!
Can someone help, please?

A/C Power

I loaned a friend (!!!) a T440p. He returned it today. I plugged it into the A/C and started a download. I returned later to find the battery totally drained even to the extent of not being able to get into the bios. I had a fresh replacement battery from another machine which I used to get into the...

Re: Pimped T440p and heat

RBS, top of the mornin' to ya,
Back to heatsink issue. I'm toying with the idea of fitting an external heatsink via a copper cable out of the ventilation holes at the back. Am I dreaming or do you think it's possible? I don't intend to move the T440p from this desk.

Re: Charger for T440p quad core upgrade

I have done exactly the same. With the new CPU, I needed a bigger psu adapter. I chose the 135 watt unit as there was very little difference in price and the 135 has more performance available in case you keep modding. Your local electronics store probably has what you need and in my case, it was a ...

Hi RealBlackStuff, My mods are quite similar to yours (CPU, RAM, SSD, Ultra bay. It brought the standing temperature to around 53C...which is OK. I then loaded an M.2 drive in the spare bay and the temperature stablised at about 63C. My electronics background informs me that heat and electronics rar...

Thinkpad T440p screen

I am elderly and the screen is without much contrast making it difficult to read. A friend told me that the screen can be replaced with a "gloss" 1600x900 for a relatively cheap price. Can someone point me at more information and ideally, to a seller?
