W701 fx2800m - HP parts :(

#1 Post by Jefferson » Mon Sep 30, 2019 8:51 pm

I purchased fx2800m on ebay for my W701 because the temp was running too high and throttle with my old one.

Upon receiving it, I noticed that it has HP parts number on the sticker, which leads me to believe that it's originally for the HP laptop.

is it compatible with W701?

I googled a bit but the only reference I found was that HP-labeled fx2800m runs on W701 "imperfectly"

don't know what that menas...

anything helps! thanks

Some of them work well, some won't work at all.
The best way is to check it!

I have seen reports claiming those GPUs that are built on light green plates worked fine. Still, never tested it this way.

I doubt that the throttling issue was with the GPU, it was probably your cooling system. If you want, I have a spare 2800M I could sell.
