Here's an odd question. does anyone have either a higher clocked C2D (laptop) than the T7200 and/or a T7300 that's clocked at 2.00 but otherwise faster that's tested fpulog? My T7200 still holds the highest laptop score when I had it overclocked to 2.4 GHz and incredibly curious if my 2.00 clocked at 2.4 was much slower than a genuine 2.4 (T8300). I suspect it will be slower, but not 100% sure as the T8300 is stock clocked at 2.4 GHz, but only has a 3 MB Cache instead of the 4 MB Cache my T7200 has. (which is retarded IMO)

Nice specs Will. Have you heard of any pin mods for you lappy? I havent found any for my 2.4GHz ml44. I've seen a few for the Intel chips but no luck for AMD's yet.

Hey guys, what temperatures do you normally get on your laptops?

This is my first laptop (specs in signature), and the temperatures kinda horrified me a bit. I get ~57 on idle and ~67 on load, CPU.

GPU's I haven't measured them on load yet because I still have to work out which program to get on Vista x64. On idle one would be in the 40's and the other one a bit higher close to 50 degrees.

I have ordered a Zalman NC2000 cooler maybe it makes things better. After all here it's the warmest season and even my room temperature with aircondition rarely goes below 25 degrees. I read about the Zalman that it would reduce temperatures by 5 or 6 degrees.

I might try my hand at oc'ing if I can put my mind at rest with these temperatures (!) but this effing bios doesn't show anything, no fsb, no multiplier, no cpu data at all, no voltages, no RAM data... So I guess the road is to OC with software, something I never did before...

I also couldn't get ATItool to work to oc the graphics cards, maybe it's because of 64x Vista, I dunno?

BTW does anyone know of any important differences between the Zalman NC2000 and the Zalman NC1000? I found the latter in stock in my country, but to purchase the NC2000 I have to order overseas. Is the difference worth the price and the weight or?

Thanks!

I run mid 40's idle and high 50's-mid 60's load during the summer. TBH I think those temperatures are reasonable since you're running a quad core and dual 8800's

Temperatures are worse in laptops - your temps are fine.

What's the verdict on Cooling Pads??? :confused:

Good, Bad, Helpful, Harmful? My roommate tells me that they draw air AWAY from the fans and by so doing are harmful to the laptop & the fans.

On the other hand, I would think that the cooling pad I use (which has two fans in it, and blows air onto the bottom of the laptop) would be helpful in maintaining a cooler atmosphere.

On a side note, does anyone know of any software that works for the Vista 64 bit line that can monitor a laptops temperatures???

Much thanks!

It helps even if it pulls air away (like mine). Like without this cooling pad I would've melted my second hdd.

Any decent cooling pad will push air up at the bottom of the laptop. If it's designed any other way it it's a bad design.

I just got my EeePC, time to do a little overclocking of that Atom. I'm hoping for 2GHz, but I don't think I will make it.

Make sure you disable driver signing and turn off UAC.
