  3. Yeah the ultrabay fan is just not large enough to keep the temps in range at stock volts (for my unit) and I like overclocking every machine I get my hands on, so this poses a problem when my goal is just to not overheat at stock. My GPU's are doing doing ok as long as they are undervolted. Right now in a cave in FF14 GPU1 is 67c and GPU2 76c when both have a -25mv applied. I might go with the 4910mq then in the future and see what I can get out of it. I have to find out more information on it, max 4 core turbo at stock is 3.7Ghz which is kind of silly. I believe 6 bins are accessible which would make it 4.3Ghz (not that I expect that clock) For now I want to get the system set to go as it is right now, however once I finally move on to the eGPU the biggest bottleneck becomes the CPU, I can alleviate it by making sure temps are low, and high speed (2133mhz) memory. Its why I am concerned about how much raw power I can get from the CPU in this laptop, I'll likely pick up VEGA when ever it drops as it will last me long enough time to go into multiple systems, just want to limit the bottleneck as much as possible. Im still using NT-H1, its probably time for me to also finally make the jump to liquid metal...Its just quite expensive right now.
  4. Four years since this thread was started, it's still perfectly useful. Thank you very much, @svl7. I've finally been able to install my Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 into my old Y500. I ran into an issue creating a bootable DOS drive (the HP tool kept failing without any additional info; I was using a 16 GB USB 2.0 drive and Windows 10), but I did a quick Google search and found a tool called Rufus recommended by HowToGeek. I used Rufus to load the drive with FreeDOS, then transferred prr2.exe, fpt.exe, fparts.txt, and the modified BIOS image onto the root of my drive. I had no errors using any of the provided files other than the HP tool. Thanks again for keeping those links updated and working.

  6. Post your hardware ID and we can give you a straight answer
  7. So I have tried everything on this forum to try and resolve the dreaded code 12 error. I've got a DSDT override working, I've tried all manners of booting with/without it plugged in, I've got rEFIt installed and am running the startup.nsh script. Im not really sure what else to try. Running Windows 10 on Bootcamp It kind of works in macOS, but not well. It's detected in About This Mac, but when I plug it in, I get a lot of visual artifacts and tearing on screen. Anyone have any advice?

  9. They can be be replies. Quality Posts means "Thanks", "Nice Job", "Cool" and so on will not Count to be promoted.
  10. Ultrabay fan is weak even at max speed, but, you can fit original main fan to ultrabay, lower pitch than y500 fan, which is stronger by the way, but it is still enough for 1 gpu, and noise is less. I think it held very well, regarding the size of heatsink, and vrm overload, but that is out if its league. 47W but larger cpu could work, since under gaming load, it can boost up to 4930 speeds, but under heavy load, tdp will keep it cool ( compared to 57W) I bought is from local marketplace, it was around 200EUR, and sold it around 170... ebay is waaaay overpriced. 4200m was arround 40EUR... a 4340m slipped out of my hand, and that was even a bit cheaper. that would have been the perfect cpu for me. Max temps will be only lower if you increase disspipation space on other side of pipe, like larger fins, increased airflow, lowered ambient temps. And of ocurse, @skavi use CLU, and with that less is not always the better, apply it to chip and heatsink as well, and increase pressure on chip via washers. I don't have to mention, when using clu, insulate smds beside the chip, do I?
  11. Hey Klem, Do 5 posts mean 5 new threads/topics/discussions or can they just be 5 replies to other topics??
  12. Hi! I'm Windows 10 and EVGA Precision X "evil magic" victim aswell. let me tell ya' my story. I downloaded EVGA Precision X and overclocked GPU a bit too much and it crashed. Green artifcats came on screen, nothing worked so i force shut down pc. After reboot i couldn't see anything because of pernament black screen (even in BIOS), my only friend was external monitor. Later i removed LCD many times display cable from panel ( N173HGE-L11 ) and re-installed nVidia drivers. After many attempts i managed to get life back into this panel, but only in Windows with gfx divers enabled. In regedit it's possible to see that the panel is using its own IDs but also external monitor's IDs, so i think it's not working without those. Yesterday i found this thread and i tested edid-rw, no luck. i also tried windows-based edid dumper called "dumpEDID", for this time it shows two monitors with same id, one is external one and other is build-in panel. It's impossible to re-falash eeprom in Linux, because of lack of responding addresses so i don't know which to flash. Any ideas, guys? Any help would be welcome, Thanks!
  13. Guys when i try to backup the bios i get "Error 200: Invalid parameter value specified by user. Use -? option to see help." when i execute the Backup file it opens and close instantly and i don't get any backup.bin file ... any help or solution please ?
  14. GTA IV (2008) Very High (all to MAX) +SMAA with ENB mod and textures mods + car mods with 1680x1050 I can play the game with 30-35 FPS on my retina display... The best story in game for me, and after 9 years finally i can run it to the max, its look great with all mods - REPLAY!
  15. Mine are ~41 with normal loads like chrome tabs /w stock voltages. You could try sanding down the heat sink surface and make sure it is making proper contact with the CPU die. 60c is really high for Idle, Are you using a good thermal paste? I had the same problem before with a cheap thermal paste.
  16. Alright everyone, the server was wiped this morning for a few reasons: 1. We want to give new players a fresh chance to level up since those of us who started with the server had a pretty big advantage. 2. We need to set some rules and a fresh wipe will set those in stone. That said, the rules are as follows: No offline raiding - if you're caught doing this, all your buildings will be demolished by an admin and you will be killed forcing loss of your belongings. If it happens a second time, you will be banned. No placing objects inside mountains where they cannot be reached. If you do this by mistake, contact an admin to rectify it. No foundation spamming, this will result in a warning then ban. Because avatars are disabled, building bases in unreachable locations (e.g. on mountains that require stairs to reach) is prohibited. Building near NPC spawn (e.g. NPC towns/villages/caves) that causes them to cease to spawn will result in your building being removed by an admin. In addition, we are testing settings and right now the server is at 3x ALL so if you are happy with that, let us know. Good luck and have fun!
  17. My idle temps currently is 38c-43c I have the grill removed, washer/spring mod applied, and 6 pieces of copper attached to heatpipe and aluminum with a cooling pad, also thermal "glue" applied to the GPU pipe over the CPU area. Its why Im a little irritated with my load temps lol, 82c Got to work on lowering the temps more.
  18. My idles are around 60C, even after repasting and adding some thermal paste under the GPU heat pipe to help the CPU. Even a 100mv undervolt has not helped much. Is there any way to decrease my temps?
  19. I'm trying to get promoted. Do you have to start 5 new discussions to be counted as "posts" or can it just be 5 replies to the discussion??
  20. Thats awesome man, thanks for sharing! I figured it would be a 50/50 chance of it working but stoked that it does. Making it a clean looking install is more challenging but at this stage I believe function over form is what we're after anyways
  21. If you are referring to the usage of both the Ultrabay PCIe and SATA slots concurrently, then it is definitely possible. I am doing this right now. You just need the correct cable. I'm using this one from Amazon. It allows you to connect the Ultrabay SATA port to an HDD caddy. This one connects directly to the HDD without the caddy. Here's my (messy) setup.
  22. Sweet, I figured with how locked this system is out of the box that it would likely disable the SATA port if Ultrabay was populated. I dont have an extra drive right now so I cant test it myself. @ghoul Hmm quite the hurdle. Chassis is already cut for more airflow, Im not throttling anymore but temps are still way too high, the fan curve just sucks. I've already cut the wire for the ultrabay and still 15c higher than GPU1 at stock volts, have to undervolt to keep it from reaching 97c eventually. Which is the motivation for the larger fan on the ultrabay side. This is unfortunate that the 4930mx is too much for the y510p, I recall xoticpc selling these laptops with the option for 4930mx back in the day but maybe no one actually bought any. There really isnt much point to getting the 48xx/49xx though as they are just as locked to 47w and thus cant actually access the higher multipliers when under significant load, might change some under gaming but would make it difficult to test for stability I would imagine. In a nutshell, its either stick with the 4700mq or undergo heavy modification to accommodate the 4930mx/4940mx. I actually like the second option, the challenge seems fun but since there is the price hike on those chips Ill have to wait a while before pulling the trigger on it, its also likely ill just buy it from another laptop on ebay, some are going for 900 when the chip itself goes for 500-600. Spacer was probably the wrong term, I should have said washers. I have no way of locating them here in Korea at the moment, I'll just test it and see how it works out, I've had success with them in the past. Regarding the heatpipes, I've already purchased the copper heatsinks. The idea is to transfer as much heat to the other pipe as possible, I have already glued the GPU pipe to the CPU portion but temps are still differing greatly. Im sitting in a somewhat populated area in Final Fantasy 14 at the moment with 28% load @ 79c-82c (3.4Ghz 4 core -90mv core/-90mv cache) while GPU1 is 65c -25mv (stock clocks) and GPU2 70c -50mv (stock clocks) its my opinion (no hard data to back this) that the heatpipes are already underutilized due to low fan curve. Its why replacing with larger fan is a great idea because even though it will just lower rpm of the fan due to increased airflow when it hits top load temps the end result should still be lower than stock solution. In any case, if it doesnt work out, I can just as easily pull them off, but thats unlikely as Ill need them to transfer heat to the GPU pipe after its disabled. Fun little project at least
  23. Last week
  24. Just ordered one on ebay. I'm so excited to test this out.
  25. @TheReciever First of all forget 4.5 even large AW machines are unable to run them at that speed, heat and power is too much. 4.2 with AW, but never gonna happen in this machine for multiple reasons. First of all 4910MQ is 47W cpu. 4930MX's deafult IA max current is 95A and Lenovo bios sets it 86 if i remember correctly. Evven with unlocked bios, tried to increase it, but nothing happened. So did the cTDP failed to work, no matter, how i set it in bios, MSR as set according, and XTU was able to read those settings, but throttling occured way before that, porbably,because of current limit, which is programmed by EC after bios init, so those settings are overwritten. With undervoltin, was able to run Throttlestop bench @57W TDP throttling, cpu speed was hovering between 37 and 38 multi. Don't expect more from Lenovo, and with 47W cpu, it will be even lower. With more current usage,like AVX load, speeds where down as 3.0 with 4700MQ, didn't tried that with 4930mx, probably you will understand why Lenovo repair manual for motherboard states clear, 47W cpu max, use cooling on vrm, and expect it to fail over time And remove battery, when you tempering around VRM, those are under power ,and risking shortage( been there, done that... tried to move thermal pad over with screwdriver, motherboard almost died, had to repair it) What spacer are you trying to remove? If you want more pressure on chip, use washer mod, copper shim will introduce another layer of thermal interface between chip and heatsink. Regarding extra heatsink... For heatplate( let's call it that), as you can see, you can add copper sink, but, this is a two sided weapon. You will gain, for being more thermally capacitive( English not my native, excuse me if it is unenglish ), and heat from chip will be absorbed by copper heatsink as well, delaying temp increase nad flattening down heatspikes. But, downside is, the are dissipating to chassi, so eventually, when final temps are equalized, temps will be as high as without them. Cooling down will be slowed as well, so only reason to use them is for this. But, putting those on heatpipe in the chassis, will make it even worse, because it will downgrade the efficiency of heatpipe, since not all heat will absorb outside the chassis, but part of it inside. Strongly unadvised. Cutting chassis,so fan will be able to breath more fresh cold air is a better approach. But don't forget, VRM will be hotter,since airflow over it will be lower. Those outside sucker are as good to practice throwing to dumpster. Use brown wire cut switch, and it will force fans to run at max speed. Sata can be connected via flexy cable, so 1 m.2 and 2 sata devices can be inserted, if you strip sata ssds, 2 can fit on top of each other at original location. Almost forgot, fan is XN0G5 part number , AW m14 R2 fan. 4 pins inner two pins have to be switched, and that's it. Edit, did forgot something: Even with original 4700mq downvolted, inner power cable at motherboard side was almost burned. Switched out, but when used with 4930mx motherboard pins became so hot it occured after two weeks or so. If you want to use it for folding, replace power cable and solder it onto motherboard. I used 2.5 mm2 speaker cables, which was a pain in the ass to route under left speaker, and getting motherboard out became harder as well.
  26. Hi ALL Is it possible to install a 120hz display? Has anyone People a photo of the cable? THX. Rainer
  27. You have nothing left but try, starting with BIOS (if clevo), or vBIOS, I'd rather try on different drivers.
  28. I did a bit of research and found out that my notebook only has a 180Watt PSU. I searched a bit here and saw that a couple of people made their own 240Watt PSU for their P150HM notebooks. I was wondering if there is a guy here who would be willing to make a 240Watt PSU for me as well and sell it to me? I don't have tools to make my own PSU nor do i have the knowledge for it.
  29. This is a 2GB Vbios for GTX680M,this is from a Medion Erazer(MSI) they use only GTX680M with 2GB. GTX680M2GB.rar
