That would be incorrect.

The external video card solutions (vidock2) are yet to be as powerful as even the least powerful p-fx GPU, 8800m GTS. Hopefully that will change soon.

Glad to report i upgraded the CPU with minimum fuss and have seen an increase in windows index rating from 4.9 for CPU and Memory to 6.1. Also dirt2 an extra 2 FPS. This is the sweet pie, average operating temperature with orgininal CPU was around 40-50C with new CPU 15-30C.


Also i noticed don't know if anyone else has a stupid amount of thermal paste on both the CPU, GPU and there respective heatplates. Isn't it meant to be a thin layer. Mine are basically pasted full of it apart from CPU which i wiped and applied alot thinner.

I couldn't believe how easy it was to upgrade the cpu,but mine didnt have an excessive amount of paste on it, so idk whats up with yours.

So you're saying you took apart your notebook to replace the TIM on the GPU? Because you're only able to access your CPU and northbridge by removing the CPU's heatsink.

This covers the CPU and northbridge. I've moded mine so that I could replace the thick thermal pad with just a bit of TIM:

You can access the GPU aswell by just taking that back panel off. Its mostly my GPU which has too much thermal atm.

I mean 60C isn't bad for the GPU on full load i just like things as cool as possible. And I think i may be confusing the northbridge with the GPU chip i was certain it was the GPU.
