Settling In (2/7)



  1. The original one that came out for the 680m/7970m was also broken into two, yet many people consider it shitty, in part because of the gap between the radiators, and leads to higher temps. What's the difference then?
  2. Thanks so much @Khenglish! The heatsink would be for a GTX 1060, but I read a post from you saying that this one has "the best" cooling. I should go for it then, right? (Cooler means longer lasting GPU) So it's normal that the end piece is divided? (At least it appears to be from the photos). PS: What do you mean with poor memory cooling? Would this be a relevant problem for the 1060?
  3. Both are stock, but they have changed the design over time. The ones I have for example, are less efficient and make the card 10° hotter.
  4. I'm looking to upgrade the heatsink in my p170em as I have the shitty version that first came out. I posted this in NBR but didn't get many replies. Hoping maybe @Khenglish, or anyone, can help. I found the following two heat sinks. Now I don't know which one is "the best"...Option 1 - Supposedly from a 980m that I found on Ebay. I'm afarid because it seems the end part seems to be 2 pieces.Option 2, from a 780m. It's a from a laptop seller in Germany: Thanks for any help
  5. During the course of my ongoing upgrade to the GTX 1060, I found out that it runs a lil bit too hot (80-85°) compared to the temps reported by @Billy2789 (65-70's°). After much repasting and screw adjustment I could barely do a dent to the temps. Eventually I noticed that Billy and I have different heat sinks: I have the old 2-piece heat sink that first came out for the P170EM and he had an early P170SM version meant for the 780m. Some research shows these provide 10-15° cooler temps.Further reading led to @Khenglish suggesting a 980m heatsink, as these have slightly better temps than the 780m one.I'm asking around on European websites, but would apprecciate pointers on what I should ask for - Currently I'm asking for a P170SM heat sink for the 980m. Is this correct? Also, what would be an appropiate price, as I have seen numbers vary between 60 USD to 95 USD??? Heat sinks for other cards are valued much cheaper (around 35 USD). Perhaps a recommended shop in Europe? All pointers are appreciated.
  6. @Ferrouswogg Fixed the BIOS problem. Now my problem is that I can't download your file. My account may be too new "The page you are trying to access is not available for your account." is the error message I get.
  7. OMG you both are geniuses. Removing the GPU for one restart cycle fixed everything. I'm writing from the affected computer now Love you 1000 times!
  8. I have only two RAM sticks equaling 16GB. How can I reflash if it gets stuck? Could you explain more in detail :)? Also wouldn't the lack of a GPU thermal signal lead to a shutdown?
  9. I tried, but after the first start up (still holding Fn+B, without monitor, only LEDS), the restart sends again to the splash screen, not the recovery menu as I read it is supposed to u_u
  10. Yes, I left it a couple hours on the splash screen, no changes.
  11. I left in Europe, as I was going to sell it. I'm currently in Mexico for 3 months.
  12. Pressed Tab, changed into text bios, pressed F2, says Entering Setup. Hangs in there :/
  13. Computer wont turn on doing that. No changes after that u_u
