Success: Thinkpad X40 !!!

Post by phc-x40 » Tue 16. Mar 2010, 18:23

Hi,

first of all: Thank you to the PHC-Team, their stuff just works :-)

Well, after having PHC so smoothly installed I was mostly looking for some VID values from other Pentium M users as guidance...I gave up looking pretty soon but wrote down the steps I took and my VID values - you can find them in the (german) Mini-How-to attached, but use that as guidance only.

Applying the new VID values (in general -10%) my Thinkpad remained completely silent (no fan operation) as I was setting up the values, trying, surfing and writing this stuff. The CPU Temperatur is at 40°C all the time while the laptop is on my desk. I just did a short Burn-In Test and the system did not crashed - the fast dropping of temperatures was noteable and nice. (Just to give a quick and brief impression)

So again, thank you for your outstanding tool and keep up the great work - and thank you for sharing all your knowledge!


Last thought: Using Debian on a noiseless Thinkpad (thanks to PHC-Undervolting and a SSD) is really cool ;-)

Hi, I have a X40 too and would like to know what SSD you're using and how it performs. It's hard to find affordable 1.8" 44 pins IDE SSDs that are not total crap.

My default vids are: 26 26 25 23 22 21 20 18
The vids I have been using for a long time are: 14 13 11 9 7 5 2 0

(Edit: Seems you got a more different CPU than I first thought.)

Hi,

I had a 64GB Kingspec 1,8" SSD - stay away from this model or read this and think twice:

Until now, I have got a 32GB RunCore Pro IV 1.8" PATA IDE Solid State Drive SSD up and running. No issues and its now working longer than the Kingspec did.

I searched a lot for replacement back then, compared and got mine from memoryc.com maybe that will help you...

Thank you! After posting I searched for one and came up with the Runcore from memoryc too as the best option. There are good SLC Disk on Moduless that should fit, but they're up to 16GB and too expensive.
