I believe that is an interposer card, that was used to extend the Ultrabay's connectors for the 15" 4:3 T60's motherboard (since its housing case was slightly bigger than its 14.1" variant). The other models, such as the 14.1" 4:3 and the 15.4" 16:10 T60, do not have this interposer installed.TinkerMan wrote: ↑Fri May 03, 2019 2:32 pmok , so after looking on the internet to a loooot of photos of T60 mobos I came upon this weirdo, by the looks is the thing that the guy in the video talks about
in his video he talks as if the T61 also would have one, but, mine did not have one, and I doubt the T60 will have one either, but I still didnt disassembled the T60 yet, so I cant tell for sure.
As far as I know, the 4:3 and 16:10 T61 never had this interposer installed either.
He meant to detach the interposer from the 15" 4:3 T60's motherboard, and then attach it to the 14.1" 4:3 T61's motherboard.
Also, could you please convert these images into links? They are far too big, and they are also above the stated 50KB limit which the forum's rules had mentioned.
FRU 42W2820, or 42X4685, or 42W2028, for the models that are equipped with a dedicated graphics chip. FRU 42W2823, or 42W2821, or 42W2029, for the models that are equipped with an integrated graphics chip.
Yes, but I don't recommend it. The only advantage that you would get from using a T500's heatsink assembly, is a faster-spinning fan that is slightly quieter than the T61's fan.
The disadvantage however, is that the T500's heatsink assembly does not properly sit onto the T60's graphics chip. If I can recall, the T60 has a graphics chip that is slightly taller than the graphics chip used in the T500, which means an uneven or improper contact. The solution to this, would be to bend the T500's heatsink assembly till it makes proper contact with the graphics chip.
This is the reason why I do not recommend installing the T500's heatsink assembly.
You cannot remove the heatpipes from the T61's heatsink assembly, unless you have a machine that can remove the adhesive used to glue the heatpipes and the heatsink together. This is also assuming that the machine does not damage the heatpipes, since they are likely to be very fragile.TinkerMan wrote: ↑Fri May 03, 2019 8:40 amalso, the heat-pipes and fan must both come from the same system or can the heat-pipes come from T61 and the fan from T60?
I am asking all this because I cant find a step by step guide on how to create a frankenpad, despite many people having one, it seems everybody likes to post about their creation but not explain in detail on how to do it, so I am picking up bits and pieces everywhere
If you were to utilize the T60's fan and combine it with the T61's heatsink assembly, I would guess that you would get a very undesirable heatsink. This is due to the T60's fan, which produces less airflow as compared to the T61's fan. The other thing to note is the T60's fan noise, that is also much louder than the T61's fan noise. In any case, don't do that.
Well, there are different T61 models that require a different heatsink assembly. That is the reason why they all look so different.
The most important thing that you should be aware of, is that any heatsink assembly that is meant for the 14.1" 16:10 T61, is incompatible with the 14.1" 4:3 or 15" 4:3 T60. The only heatsink assemblies that would fit in without an issue, are the heatsink assemblies meant for the 15.4" 16:10 T61 or the 14.1" 4:3 T61.
