  1. The temp stays at 90ºC with the turbo/fans on max?
  2. Taobao prices after adding shipping and Paypal fees end in the 750-800€, on eBay its "only" around 100€, and one or another will be hit hard by customs in my country, so extra 23% VAT over all that Lets wait for volta to come out to see if Pascal gets cheaper lol.
  3. Good to see successful upgrades to 1070. I want to get one, but they are so expensive, and then I dont know where I could sell my current 980m, I dont think that 500$ to go from 980m to 1060 is worth it, its a bit faster yes, but not 500$ faster..
  4. Unless there are updates to micro-code, and maybe ME firmware/SATA/GBe rom updates there is no much if nothing to do to a unlocked bios(as far as I know).
  5. And is that unpopulated footprint really an SLI bridge/interface, or is it some debug/test interface? Because if its not SLI the most likelly result is a pair of fried gpu's.
  6. And a Targus aka cheap crap charger to feed all that was also a bad choice..
  7. Both have a miniPCIe WiFi card, so yes, you can use an EXP GDC Beast type of eGPU adapter.
  8. Why do their cards have a "mod-wire"? Needed for the Clevo systems or needed for any non Pascal laptop to work with a Pascal GPU?
  9. Maybe something went wrong during the flash. Have you tried removing your RAM(s) stick(s) and trying one by one, and also, clean then with a white rubber very gently. If not, there should be some key combo that should enable rescue BIOS flash, that will read the bios from a usb stick with a specific file name, sorry for being vague, I dont know a lot about Lenovo.

  12. The most common is an EXP GDC V7.0 Beast that you connect to the MiniPCIexpress slot that is used by your wifi card.
  13. I would bet in a damaged audio jack, if the laptop as warranty make use of it.
  14. Clevo made Alienware before it was bought by Dell, if that says something to you..
  15. Disassemble the laptop, clean the heatsink with a brush or compressed air while holding the fan still, then clean the cpu, gpu and the heatsink faces with napkins and alchool, apply a thin line of thermal paste in the cpu because is very rectangular and a pea sized drop in the gpu. User Artic MX4 or Kryonaut. Toshiba is already throttling is CPU to 30Watts TDP via current limit, so your best bet is to undervolt it, it will be cooler and you will gain 100-200Mhz under load. I have a P50-A and I spent a couple hours to remove the stupid current limitation : But I'm using LiquidUltra on mine because the heatsink is all cooper all I did was apply nail polish over the exposed caps and test pads on the cpu/gpu and applied the LiquidUltra.
  16. https://ark.intel.com/compare/53469,53478 Even without OC you gain a lot more max clock speed, and the extra 2MB of cache will help as well, also vPro support.
  17. The amplifier is almost always some TI part, in the 2-6Watts per channel ballpark.
  18. Maybe your heatsink is not making good contact with the GPU die, some heatsinks from MSI came a bit crooked :/
  19. There are two kinds of M.2 SSD's, there are the PCIe based ones, those can be either NVMe or AHCI, NVMe ones are the fastest, AHCI are a bit slower(mainly IOP's, and are more or less phased out). Then there are m.2 SATA SSD's, those use the regular SATA interface and will be as fast/slow as a regular 2.5inch SATA SSD. If you use a M.2 SATA to 2.5inch SATA interface you are just wasting money on the converter and more money on the SSD because M.2 SATA SSD's are kinda rare(the most recent one's are MX300's) and they will offer exactly the same speed as a 2.5inch drive will ever deliver. Your laptop doesnt support m.2 PCIe SSD's, so just get a big 2.5inch SATA SSD and be happy. Also, update your BIOS and all your drivers, and do a clean install of Windows, NEVER clone an install from an HDD to an SSD.
  20. I think it was @Khenglish that did the modded cards for @Mr. Fox. If I recall he as already said he added the missing mosfets in the VRM zone of the card, what mosfets did you use Kenglish(if you want to disclose)?
  21. Match the ohm rating of the new speakers to the old ones. After that, maybe try to find some full range 1 inch drivers, maybe something like this: http://www.parts-express.com/tang-band-w1-1828sa-1-neodymium-full-range-driver--264-883 Dont know how much space you have, then get some extra speaker enclosures and hack the new drivers into them.
  22. Interesting, thanks for the links, but the laptop was already returned to my friend(the owner), I found a B950, and after going into Device Manager and removing the CPU and rebooting it recognized the new CPU clock speed, added 4GB of RAM and a new 1TB HGST HDD, clean install of Windows and a cleaned heatsink, its ready for another couple years of Facebook and Spotify, if he ever wants I will try that, because I have a dozen i7's laying around from broken laptops that are just gattering dust in my desk
  23. A big part of the better sound is bigger sound chambers for each speaker, aka the enclosure, and if you swap only the speakers and keep the original Clevo enclosures it will sound the same.. I find funny that what as a couple years ago a normal speaker is called a sub, my Asus N53SM had speakers in the 5cm diameter range, bigger than the "sub" in mi MSI and ROG G750 lel.. The sub will need an extra amplified output that is also filtered/EQ'ed to just emit lower frequencies so you cant just drop a sub into a laptop that doesn't have one.
