Many people flash a whitelist-removed BIOS and then install a newer, cooler, half size WLAN card.
The retired: lenovo T430s i5 3230m 16GB QHD w/ optimus(RIP), lenovo T430 i5 3320m 8GB FHD, lenovo T500 P9700 8GB WUXGA(LED) w/ switchable graphics
Enable 2 finger scroll on old Synaptics touchpads with registry.
While the palm rest heat thing is very famous, I wonder if that is the only reason. I also have a second fan on my T9300 board X61 in that same position and trying to unplug it (even after upgrading to Middleton's BIOS and making the WiFi card much smaller), will result in a BIOS panic. It doesn't turn on too often in my case, and I count that as a good thing.

Check the HMM for the Second fan, (low profile only for X61s).

Models without the 2nd fan do not have the fan header for it, so even if you buy the fan there's nowhere to plug it into.

Yes, I've just noticed it today when disassembling one of my X61. The fan connector is just not soldered thereaxur-delmeria wrote: ↑Fri Jul 12, 2019 3:42 amModels without the 2nd fan do not have the fan header for it, so even if you buy the fan there's nowhere to plug it into.
Interesting why my X61 had SIM card and 2nd mPCIe slot, but not the fun. The WWAN antenna also wasn't in place. I was hoping to put in the antenna from X60s, but it's different and thus cannot be used.
