I like the fact of the vent holes though.

Thats what i just said lmao.
And regardless on weather or not the vent holes are a good idea or not, he is an idiot for using a soldering iron.

And it seems to me also like those copper peices are wwaayy to big and could short the little transistors around the chip or something else bad.

The extra thick TIM acts as an insulator and allows the chipset and GPU to heat up more than they should. By putting a small amount of TIM on either side of the shim, and putting the copper shim between the heatsink and the chipset and/or GPU, the temps drop around 20°C. I haven’t watched the video yet (will do now), but I know why shims are being used.


I used to own a DV2125nr... and pulled the motherboard to have the chipset resoldered only to have the board go out 3 months later. I found out after the fact HP extended the warranty, but they never contacted me to let me know. So for me it was too late. Then I missed the class action lawsuit that resulted in owners getting replacement laptops from HP. I still have that laptop in pieces... in a box in my garage.
if u where in canada i was gonna sugest u to come by so i can fix it for you, i do a few of them everyday, and seriously HP made thousand of poeple waste money they are my best source of revenue for the last 3 years!

someone should report this to youtube.

Wow the oils on his finger will probably burn up his chip. I was also cringing thinking about what if I bought a used laptop and some kid did this to it before shipping it off to me lol

As for the copper plate I doubt that would help much. Vent holes do but not with a soldering iron LOL.

After all the work I did pulling the board and sending it in to have the chipset resoldered (HP also used a lead based solder that was failing due t the excess heat), I just decided to pick up a dell M1530. it has been great, except the wife cracked the screen. So now I have a new screen in a box, and waiting for a chance to swap it out. And of course I picked up the worst reviewed panel. I know now which one I should have gotten, and it was only $25 more. You live and learn I guess.

Omg this guy is an idiot, watch some more of his videos


He seems to think that if you leave it idling while on a bed or desk, the graphics card will die Within a few hours.

Watch this one, you can steal his windows key if you wanted...

he got the intel version of it! this version is great, take about any mobile cpu and got a 8600gs onboard with HDMI and is the model that break the least often of the series.

Intel have a Nvidia Chipet and a Dedicated Video Card

AMD have a Turion (hot like hell) with a chipset with onboard video wich break all the time

Too bad he didn't show before and after temps. I wonder if that laptop can boot after the mod.
