Re: X61s SXGA+, touchpad overclocked on sale in ebay.

Did a cpu benchmark test today, the result is 1276 without dual IDA enabled (2.13GHz) with dual IDA it scored 1357. The average score of the original L7500 is 927. These numbers are varying from test to test, so I brought the highest from three runs. The heat level during the benchmark test didn't e...

Re: x61 pinmod questions

I recently did it on a T8300, but I didn't to a load test. I got to 2.92Ghz without overvolting the CPU (I plan to make a provision for that next time I take the heatsink off, since the voltage regulator is partially obscured by it. That'll let me get to 3.2Ghz+). I have 8GB of Elpida RAM, I reflas...

Re: x61 pinmod questions

Did the test overnight - 0 errors!

I searched a bit on L7700, T8300 and T9300 pinmod experiences. The results are controversial somewhat.
What was your experiences?

I rewrote a 2gb samsung bar, seems ok, no error messages. Did the pinmod. Now I have 2.13Ghz on an L7500 without dual ida and 2.4Ghz with dual ida, cool! No. You only need to rewrite on one of the RAM. Put that one in the primary RAM slot and the other one will use the same timings. What you do need...

Re: x61 pinmod questions

this might be a silly question.
Does the SPD rewrite modify the ram bar itself ? If so, Then obviously I need to do that for all ram bars that I plan to use separately right?

Re: x61 pinmod questions

So ram upgrade is recommended, but if SPD is rewritten then there is a chance that stock 667 will work as well (depending on the particular producer of ram)
Am I right?

Re: Mod project: X61T internal webcam

Have you considered detaching the camera from its board. If you manage to do the proper wiring you can store the camera board in the body and have more options for fitting the camera on the screen.

Re: disabling second fan

Thanks for a hint, I just bought one today from a Japanese guy.
So t9000 with fan is welcome :)

BTW, for x61s (not x61) it seems that you can just connect the signal wire from the second fan to the one on the main fan. That will clean the fan error message. Unfortunately it didn't work on x61.

Re: strange problem with a sensor on LCD cable

My guess would be that it's the Hall effect switch (sensor) which determines when the lid is open/closed. When operating correctly, it detects the presence or absence of a magnetic field. There should be a magnet mounted somewhere directly opposite of the sensor when the lid is in the closed positi...
