Thinkpad T60 replacemnt motherboard

#1 Post by Bready_To.Toast » Sat Oct 14, 2017 3:35 pm

So my Thinkpads T60 moherboard (if you need to know the Thinkpads TYPE is 1951-43U) has been bricked and im wondering if i should replace the motherboard with EXACT same model or if i should go for some other motherboards like

Thinkpad T61/T61 Nvidia NVS 140M:
FRU:42w7873 and 44c3924

Thinkpad T60 ATi X1300:

Thinkpad T61/R61 GMA X3100
FRU:42w7872 (merom only 42w7648)

i cannot seem to find the FRU's for the ATi X1400 chips if you can could you suggest some motherboards and FRU's? im currently trying to get my hands on the X1400 but the GMA and X1300 offering are good too

T60 Mobo:

Pros: Stock.
Cons: Missed opportunities below.

T61 NVS140M:

Pros: Best GFX card for the T6x series without serious modding. Penryn support for fast CPUs, 8GB RAM, SATA II performance.

Cons: NVS140M can fail if not safe date.

T61 GMA Graphics:

Pros: Penryn CPUs, 8GB RAM, SATA II performacne
Cons: GMA Graphics isn't as fast as NVS140M

I recommend a safe-date NVS140M paired up with a T9500 or SLAQD(E8435**) C2D CPU.

**=SLAQD/E8435 CPU is the equivelant as a T9900 but lacks a few features present on the T9900. Used in one of the iMacs.
