No disassembling possible for my overpriced piece of plastic.
Or do you have another thought?
Disassembly is always possible I've already fixed 2 of mine and stripped a 3rd down to bare plastic (we all have laptops here).
The problem is usually just the switch, the plug, or a bad solder point on the cheap ass circuit boards they use... not too hard to fix
What model cooler is it?
Unfortunately it works... Like a blender. :S
Microsoft cooling pad.
Lynnfield, actually, I'm too cheap to buy a SB/IB (at least for now, I can get an IB Xeon + Z77 mobo for $400, so I might do that in a month or two).
EDIT: I re-enabled FAH this afternoon, and it still seems to be holding strong, I'll see how it does this evening
Looks like this one?
If so it should have 4 screws holding it together and a slim 80 or 100mm inside (have 2 of these fans in my parts box somewhere). Screws are likely under the padding if they can't be seen.
Seems to only be a 70mm fan. And practically knew where the screws were when you said there should be some.
But still don't have access to a screwdriver... :S
Edit: Not the one you found. This one: http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Z3C-00001-Notebook-Cooling-Black/dp/B0021ZEHQU
Should be made by the same OEM manufacturer.. just rebranded. Save it for a project when you get a screwdriver ..... if you were about 3,000 miles closer I would have it running for you in 'bout 10 minutes!
I should have paid more attention
FYI- WCG is accepted uploads and reporting atm.... you may need to hit retry on the transfers tab to get them to upload though.
Just sent in about 50 wu's a few minutes ago
Got the i7 2600K chip in last night, put it in, and it popped right up to 4.2ghz!!!
The 2500K was great, however with the 2600K chip it will run 8 threads crunching.
what core volt stinger?
When I got home I had about 30 waiting. All have uploaded since
Yeah I was able to upload on both rigs completely.
...and KieX, I bet $20.
My numbers are gonna be low due to this today.
mine too, but tomorrow we both might have a very good day.
That would be cool to get back into the swing of things.
Indeed, I get my 2nd rig up and it can't upload. I was looking forward to seeing what my #'s looked like.
@F150 You will get work soon. Trucks are the way we get food here, and all the toys.
Still don't post much, but it is good to see the team growing.
@Norton More hot pics. Hammer must be so pissed at me for this. Pie is for hot chicks and not the kind with feathers.
^^^ "not the kind with feathers"
That got me, sorry.
Well, I've been offered an incredible deal on a CPU & mobo from KieX, this might be hard to pass up....
Hmm, its showing 1.3461 currently at 4.2ghz.
And got a smoking deal, as some of you know, on a combo the other night. Waiting on that to arrive and just fired up the ole 4x4 system so currently crunching 24 threads.
I'll get them in but will still mix it up a bit... so yes some chicks will have feathers
I passed 20 passes of LinX at 3.8GHz using 1.175v (cpu-z reads 1.177). I'd say that's pretty good yeah? Maybe too good to be true... like that time I ran 9 hours of occt linpack at 1.275v for 4GHz and got a BSOD with a x101 code while playing a game. Anyway it seems I found the sweet spot for sure if this is indeed stable. 3.8GHz isn't bad at all... and at 1.175v temps and power usage stay relatively low. 62c load right now, though it's only 72f in here. Almost 4800ppd being reported by Ion's estimator for 3.8GHz.
i dont care much for these so called stress programs, bc 8/10 times they dont hold true in everyday usage
do some crunching, do some gaming, do some everyday use, if it doesnt bsod with that, you got yourself a stable machine
True, at the end of the day actually using the computer seems to be a better test. I figure if I can survive 20 passes of LinX, which seems to be the industry standard among many overclockers, it should be able to survive anything else I can throw at it. Then again, like I said, 9 hours OCCT Linpack stable but then I got a BSOD during supcom2 while crunching. Stress test programs aren't to be 100% trusted, but it's a good indicator of whether you are stable or not. Save that one occurance I just mentioned, I've never had a computer pass a good stability test and crash in something else.
