T|I Semi Advanced (3/7)



  1. I'd recommend eBay. I've heard Aliexpress can be risky. Try look for damaged units. Not only would you be able to get the part you need, but also will have plenty of spares.
  2. You'd have to know what kind of connection X230 uses and this screen. Most modern screens use eDP. I do not know if there's any constraints within the BIOS that would stop it from working, but it is possible, and it might be a good idea to do some research. You can always ask the seller. They should either tell you, provide you the needed tools and software, or guarantee that it will work out of the box with full refund in case it doesn't.
  3. Toggle USB legacy mode in BIOS. With SSD and 8GB or more RAM pagefile is not necessary.
  4. That's exactly what I was trying to say. If my Y580 does not overheat, then that means whenever there's Y580 that is overheating, then obviously there's some kind of issue. Usually bad thermal paste job as you have noticed. It's hard to tell whether it's related to binning, but my guess would be that under load they should generate around equal amount of heat. If 3630qm is binned, then it is safe to assume it runs hotter at the same frequency, which is why it's running frequency has been lowered. On the other hand 3840qm does run faster, so I'm sure it generates at least the same amount of heat under load. I do not know how much temperatures can vary depending on manufacturing quality.
  5. Most powerful Ivy Bridge mobile processor within 45W TDP group, both overvoltaged and overclocked GPU to the limits and over the spec RAM. All Y580 have the same thermal design I guess it is safe to assume, that if I don't have overheating issues, then no Y580 should have them.
  6. Have you ever considered that maybe during gaming it's running at 100%, and during dust extraction it goes like 110%? Every fan has a bearing which wears down. My guess it can run on the highest speed only for a certain time. It's a guess, so you might as well be right, but I wouldn't do it anyway. I don't have any problems with overheating. If I don't have problems with overheating, then no Y580 should have any problems with overheating. If you do have problems with Y580 overheating, then something is not right. My bet would be thermal paste.
  7. That won't make much difference. Start a benchmarking application or something like that and notice when the fan kicks in. It's less than a minute. It doesn't change the efficiency of the fan and radiator, so it will reach the same temperatures maybe like 30 seconds later?
  8. There's definitely a way, but what's the point? The fan will run at maximum speed when the CPU or GPU reach certain temperature. Running at full speed won't decrease your max temps. All it will do is it will heat up slower.
  9. You should've googled it first. Microsoft says... Certain monitors report a TV-compatibility timing of 59.94Hz. Therefore, Windows 7 exposes two frequencies, 59Hz and 60Hz, for every resolution that is supported at that timing. The 59Hz setting makes sure that a TV-compatible timing is always available for an application such as Windows Media Center. The 60Hz setting maintains compatibility for applications that expect 60Hz. In Windows 7, when a user selects 60Hz, the OS stores a value of 59.94Hz. However, 59Hz is shown in the Screen refresh rate in Control Panel, even though the user selected 60Hz. Regards
  10. This is a very impressive mod. I'm happy I don't have to do any of those with my Y580 though! It'll never beat SLI Y500 in 3D, but oh well
  11. IMO this laptop is too big for a sleeve. Go for a laptop backpack. Some of them have removable sleeve included.
  12. That's better. Thanks octiceps. bluephlamez can you elaborate what exactly did you do to the heatsink? I don't see much point in coating heatsink with more copper unless it's a radiator.
  13. Not the best looking modification, but if it does its job then well done. I do not know how does the heatsink in y500 look by default, so I'm not sure what do you mean by "more copper". Did you add more radiators or...?
