Re: Help on how to undervolt my T60p 2623-DDU

I'm using Vista 64bit and I guess RMClock didn't fully support 64bit for some reason.

Yes, I was able to clone using Acronis no failure whatsoever. Anyhow, it has been months since I bought my intel. I still experienced stuttering every couple of days. I guess it depends on how heavy I'm using my computer. Now I replaced my intel X25-M to Mtron 3500 64GB without stuttering problem on...

May I ask again, if somebody knows if this SATA 1,5GBit restriction also applies to the latest Thinkpad generation? (X200/T400/W500 etc.) And did you test if you get higher read speeds with the Intel X25-M when you are connected to a power-plug? Maybe the limitation only applies when relying on acc...

Yeah, I suspected that X25-E should eliminate the freezes problem completely. But even with X25-M I'm still very happy with the performance. The freezes didn't happen all the time. maybe only once between 2-3hrs period you are working for 30sec interval which is not so bad. I'm sure there is more re...

I still don't get it. According to T60 specifications, it is supposed to support: Storage controller type Serial ATA/IDE Storage Controller / Serial ATA Interface "Serial ATA-300" Doesn't this mean it should support intel SSD all the way without being capped at all? how about 110MB/sec?

Yes, I played around a bit with x300, and indeed the screen was bad. The background was not white but yellowish. It's not acceptable for AUD$3999 though.
