As long as it is docked, or plugged in, you should not. Depending on what you are doing, it may run a couple degrees warmer than now. 

If you are not plugged in or docked and running on battery alone, it will drain faster due to the higher demand by the processor.

If you are running games, then yes it will run hotter than usual. 

My E6430 has a 3rd gen i7 in it now, and I run a R9 380 eGPU with it. And while running high demand games such as Monster Hunter top graphics settings and Need For Speed Payback, my computer does run hotter than normal, but the original fan and cooling unit are enough to keep it at a manageable level.

 

Thank you for the information, i greatly appreciate it.

Hi, does anyone know the pointerstick (btw G,H,B) on keyboard is related with the upper mouse buttons (the 3 buttons below the spacebar) ?

 

i had an old kb that has a pointerstick, and the lower 2 mouse buttons below touchpad, and the 3 mouse buttons above touchpad were working fine.

 

i decided to change the kb with an illuminated one (that one do not have pointerstick.),

i changed kb. and gave the old one away.

Now the 3 upper buttons do not work ???

 

best regards.

any interest in removing Intel ME from the e6430?  I was successful in doing this with A24 BIOS using https://github.com/corna/me_cleaner along with information from this thread.

What part of the guide did you follow to do this?  I have two e6430's I'd like to do this to..

Dell has been disabling the management engine themselves, by hand apparently. the unit I have is on the a17 bios and it has a sticker on the bottom that says 'ME DISABLED" . Along with that, the base clock cannot be manipulated. Id like to reenable that option. How do I "RE-ENABLE" the management engine? I like breaking the rules. I dunno why you would disable it yourself. Unless you are the man....jk. lol..
