When i first got this laptop (used), the fan on the graphics card would occasionally start speeding up, then slowing down, then speeding up in a pulsing manner. I found a couple threads online that said this was normal. Now however I'm starting to hear a rattling sound every once in a while... anyone had issues with this?

As long as it's a 2.5" SSD and not the desktop 3.5," it will.

NICE THREAD!

My specs can be found in my sig - Upgraded my 6831's CPU to a T9300, put in 4 gigs of RAM, and installed a WD 7200RPM 16mb hard drive. Possible future upgrades ($ permitting): I might get another WD hard drive or possibly buy 2 newer ones, or a SSD, possible screen upgrade, and Windows 7.

I have one, the P6860FX. I got a Hitachi 500gig 7200rpm hard drive in the beast after the SECOND HD failed on me, after warranty no less. I think I might have picked up the only lemon out there.

heres why I think MINE is a lemon:

The monitor and first HD went withing the first 3 months.
The DVD drive died the day after my warranty ended, great!
And the second HD died after a year in a half, same manufacture as the first one.

My mistake for not buying the store's warranty I guess, learned my lessen.

But now it's fine and stable, haven't had any problems sense I switched the HD and installed Win7 on it. Even got a very good laptop cooler for it to keep it cool while gaming.

Though I've been thinking of getting a new CPU for it, but that'll have to wait for a later date. So mine's pretty much stock except for a 500gig drive and Win7 Pro (64-bit).

Nice upgrades. I would be hesitant to upgrade the screen. It's something I want to do as well just realize that if you do, you'll have lower FPS from your games. Right now at 1440x900 you can play any game out there with native res and lots of eye candy turned on. If you upgrade your panel you may not be able to. Just something to think about.

Also I went from a single HDD to RAID 0 to SSD + HDD. The last set up is the way to go. Highest performance and lowest temps. RAID 0 HDDs made the palmrests feel like they were on fire!

Just Flash your 9800m GTS with lower 0.94 Voltage on 3D Like I did. And its safe OCed to 700/1750/850. Now running with FurMark stability test on extreme burning mode, only got 70c max running 1 hour, and it doesnt get more than that. Playing Crysis for hours and got 68c max.

On everything stock with out flash I was getting 78c max. Now Iam getting amazing scores, P5198 on Ventage and 9998 3dmark06(res. 1024x768) on P7805u stock p8400 CPU.
