Been a long time since I've browsed the forum because the Thinkpad has been working wonderfully.
I recently dusted off my X200 and remembered why I stopped using it. I had installed a Crucial SSD in it many years ago, and the computer often overheats to the point where it shuts down because the SSD gets too hot. I am not sure if the SSD is the cause of the overheating, or it is a victim of overheating (i.e. the old mechanical drive could take the increase in temperature). The problem gets worse when I use the docking station, so I have managed to make things "work" by using the machine on its own without a dock.
I have taken the machine apart and sprayed it with air to clear vents, etc. But the problem persists.
Has anyone had success with an SSD in the X200?
