    Looking to part out a P157SM

    I could've sworn there was a selling section on TI, but I can't seem to find it. Anyway, I'm parting out my old P157SM since I've upgraded to a P750DM2-G. I've already sold the GPU, but the rest of the parts (minus the CPU and bottom case cover) are in decent shape and I was wondering if folks would either be interested in buying any parts (much cheaper than getting them from rjtech) and/or had recommendations on where to post them. I've already posted them on eBay without much fanfare (links below) but if anyone has any tips I would be very grateful! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Laptop-Keyboard-and-speaker-cover-For-Clevo-P157SM/272870402908 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Killer-Wireless-N-1103-NIC-Clevo/272870395346 https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Clevo-P157SM-P157SM-A-P170EM-GPU-fan/272870382942 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Used-for-Clevo-P151EM1-P157SM-P157SM-A-P170HM-P170HM3-CPU-Cooling-Fan/272870380925 Thanks everyone!
  2. Hello. I just installed a used motherboard to my sager p157sm. When I try to power on, the light turns green, turbo light comes on, it stays that way for 29 to 39 seconds, turns off then automatically turns itself on again following same cycle all around. I ve reseated fans and gpu and also tried booting without gpu which also didn t work out. I tried booting with a single ram and changing ram slots and also tried a CMOS reset and nothing. Any help will be appreciated. Btw, board was confirmed working before this escapade.

  4. Hello everyone. Just got a used sager p157sm for a gpu upgrade project and noticed it beeps for a minute then shuts down by itself when under load. It does well when watching movies but when benchmarking the issue pops up. At first I thought it was the gpu so I unplugged it but still occurs. Now it's running only CPU and still does the same things after repasting. Temps of CPU remain along 80 - 87 degrees centigrade. I've cleaned system components and changed Ram modules and slots still nothing. Any help will be appreciated.

    [HARDWARE MOD] P157SM cooling overhaul

    Over the last month or so, I've been planning on overhauling my (slightly dated) P157SM to give it better cooling, and possibly higher performance. There were a number of sources I used for inspiration, and I'll attempt to document all of them later on, but first, pictures! This is the first modification I made. I increased the opening of the CPU fan to allow more air to go into the fan. As I recall, it helped with idle temperatures but I don't remember by how much. This picture shows how much I increased the opening by, I didn't do just that bit and stop Next up, I increased the width of the intakes directly over the GPU and CPU to reduce ambient heat buildup in those areas. I ultimately decided that increasing the width was not the best route to go (and it was quite ugly) so I decided to simply remove the vents I used some diamond mesh to cover those areas, but I don't have any pictures of that at the moment. Next I used some HVAC tape to direct the air flow from the CPU fan into the heatsink and not out the tiny gaps in the area. Then I swapped out the heatsinks (originally I ordered this from XoticPC and went with their copper cooling upgrade (I was young(er)) for some bigger ones. Everything is all nice and snug And finally with the lid back on. With the changes made between cutting the vents, and the last picture, I was able to drop load CPU temps ~5C which I thought was pretty nice. My goal is to also get rid of the vent over the fan, but I haven't found time to do it. I'm also planning on lapping the GPU heatsink, which will, again, take time. I'll post more updates as I make them (and post the benchmarks I've already done). Update: GPU Work: So I have a 780M at the moment (I'm planning on going to a 980M, though I may just wait for the Pascal GPU's to come out) and I decided to lap the heatsink, since I'm planning on overclocking it. Fresh of the block 400 Grit (10 minutes) 600 Grit (10 minutes) 800 Grit (10 minutes) 1000 grit (7 Minutes) 1200 Grit (7 Minutes) 1500 grit (about 25 minutes for this stage) And I thought it looked pretty smooth. One of my references mentioned cutting off the little tabs on the block, since they're mostly there for adding additional pressure (since the plate is usually warped) and I wanted to just lap the area directly over the GPU die (plus I don't really have a good place for grinding copper with my rotary tool). For the paste I used http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/thermal-compound/mastergel-maker/ which I went with based on the favorable review posted at http://www.play3r.net/reviews/cooling/cooler-master-master-gel-maker-nano-thermal-paste-performance/ and the pads are Fujipoly high end (didn't think I'd need to go ultra). I also added some little sinks on to the heatpipes, though they might be suspect (more on that in the results below). And I sealed up a gap in the fan to direct more airflow through the larger fins. I also used from more HVAC tape to try to prevent ambient air from being drawn in to the fans, but this too might be suspect (it might be needed to draw it away, since where else is the heat from all those fins supposed to go?) And the results are... interesting... pre upgrade post upgrade So the initial benchmark had a 5C drop in temperature, but the following results aren't as promising. In fact, the stress test results appears to be higher (I'm speculating that it'd be over 86C by 400 seconds). I'm thinking that either the added heatsinks on the heatpipes are dispersing the heat before it can get to the fins, my lapping job wasn't so great, or I added too much TIM. I may try the washer trick from the p150 cooling threat mentioned below, but I'm spent on energy for this weekend. June 3rd update I finally got back around to working on my clevo some more and after a third re-pasting my temps are down (taking into account that today is hotter than when I first tested) I suspect that my older paste jobs were either too thick, or I bent the heatpipe and kinda threw the plate out of alignment.
