Laptop porn thread!!

Recommended Posts

Well, a desktop CPU is an entirely different story. I was pointing out at the fact n1smo kept changing the paste fairly quickly (or it seemed so from his post). Even if he does a decent job with AS5, the results should be good nevertheless. AS5 certainly doesn't require you to pretreat surfaces (I've used it normally plenty of times), you just won't get the lowest temperatures possible, but they should still be pretty good.

Right now the GPU is idling at 33C. That is near as low as I've seen the temps. The thing is, I have no issues with the CPU temps, its the GPU that gets weird and the reason I've been resetting it so many times. I think it has just as much to do with the heatpipes themselves. Maybe when it was new, the heatpipe was performing better. I've noticed that if I sit the laptop straight up and down with the touchpad side facing up the temperature will go through the roof (100C in less than 30 sec with FurMark 1080p burn-in benchmark). I need to read up on how a heatpipe work.

Odd, you even have the 35watt cpu.

The CPU runs cool, I'm not worried about that. The springs/screws for the CPU heatsink is pretty good and I can tell that it is evenly distributing the force. The GPU is a different story. One of the screw (#4) is shorter than the rest and it is also allowed to go deeper (if you will) than the rest so that when tightened, it actually bends the motherboard. This worries me because I'm thinking this can't be distributing the force evenly on the core, probably have some gaps as a result. So I cut a piece of thermal pad sheet (I replace the thermal pads on the memory and other chips that uses it), rolled it up and placed it right over the core so when I tightened the laptop, the case would apply pressure right on the heatsink over the core. The thermal pad material gives it some flexibility so that I'm not going to damage the core. But as I am typing this, I'm thinking that perhaps I'm focusing my attention at the wrong area. I think maybe I need to look at the heatpipes a little harder because there is absolutely no change to my temperatures. CPU is idling at around 42C and the GPU is around 35C. CPU maxes out at around 77C in Furmark and the GPU at 87C when overclocked to 1155/2555. The GPU is very cool when running at stock settings, 70C max in Furmark.

Edit:

Screen shot from this morning. The laptop was sitting on the cooling pad but the pad was not powered. I keep it on the pad so the laptop doesn't suffocate on itself since my ottoman coffee table that the laptop sits on is made out of soft leather. Furmark really keeps the house warm. ;)

Just got my y500 Friday, hoping to dig deeper into its capabilites. Looking for a moded bios led me to this sight.. Which cooling pad is that by the way? And would you recommend it?

I'm here for the same reason Bizkit. I picked up my Y500 in May, just before the launch of the Y510p. I have to admit I am impressed with the bang for the buck. It doesn't feel terrible cheap. I have owned a Dell XPS M1710 and an Alienware M11x previously. My only gripe is the lack of an unlocked bios and no 5Ghz N. I bought myself an Intel 6235N card and am hoping to unlock my BIOS thanks to svl7.

I wish I had a picture of my original/first gaming laptop. It was a Toshiba Satellite 5200-s703. It was a 15.6" 1600x1200 laptop with a mobile Geforce FX 5200. It also had the really unique Synaptic C-pad, which turned the touch pad into a small LCD screen that could run applications. This is someone else's picture.

I transitioned from that beast to a Dell XPS M1710 which had a mobile GTX 790. I remember running Crysis 1 on it and just the sense of awe. Though the later levels with the snow effects really killed the framerate.

What notebook cooler is that?

This is exactly the setup I want to have. External monitor + keyboard + mouse for gaming. Simply dock the laptop after a long week on the road :)

Cooler master storm. Its a great cooling pad expensive though.

The Coolermaster Storm is indeed very nice but I found it makes alot of noise which I dont like.
