Take your pick so long as it is a slim SATA. You may also want to stick with a tray drive instead of slot, that way you can swap the faceplate.

Keep in mind that really anything above 6x playback is a waste and even at that, between 4x and 6x playback you won't see much of a difference. Data transfer rate for a Blu-ray disc is limited by the RPM capabilities of the drive itself and the bus speed of the SATA connection. So if you have a read rate of 6x and your drive is only able to transfer 3x respectively, you have a 108mb buffer. Sata uncoded transfer rate is 150mb, SATA II is 300 and so on. 1x Blu-Ray speed is 36mb. The slot on your MB for the media drive IS a SATA 1 bus. Your data transfer cap is 150mb for uncoded data.

Hope this helps.

Also, they don't come with software so.... you'll have to find a program with Blu-ray codecs and playback.

No problem. I use it as well, had to download libbluray in order for it to work though.

Cheers.

Hi,

First, I want to thank shifty22123 and all the posters for the great info about the p-7805u FX series laptop.

Especially the dis-assembly guide. The detailed instructions & photos were fantastic.thumb.gif

I was concerned because HD temps were hovering @ 45C & the MB temps @ 52C running @ idle after 2 hours with room temp @ 70F. Under load the primary HD would reach 53C, too close to max for piece of mind. This lappy is stock.

I just completed the first tear down & re-assembly of the laptop. The interior was fairly clean, which I found quite surprising for a 5 yr. old machine.

The heatsink vanes were another story. Even though I blew them out a week ago, both were partially clogged ( 1/4 on the CPU & 1/3 on the GPU) with large dust bunnies in the corners. Now everything is spotless.

CPU & HD's are now 10 degrees cooler, MB is 5 degrees cooler, GPU only runs 2 degrees cooler, all at idle. The fan cycles less frequently. Ambient air temp is 70 to 74F.

These are the idle temps after 2 hours: under load using Arma2:

GPU = 47C GPU = 64C
HD1 = 40C HD1 = 42C
HD2 = 36C HD2 = 38C
MB1 = 39C MB1 = 58C
MB2 = 39C MB2 = 58C
Core0 = 32C Core0 = 47C
Core1 = 32C Core1 = 47C

I have a couple of questions about observations during the dis-assembly & about the MB temps.

When I took off the CPU heatsink, I noticed on the northbridge chip that there wasn't any thermal paste. Just a spongy square piece of material. I suppose this is the TIM pad referred to in the guide. It wasn't damaged during the dis-assembly.

The center of the material had a squarish depression in it. Is this normal?

This would appear to be counter-productive to proper heat dissipation.

As to the MB temps, what is normal & what is max? I could not find any info about them.

Also where are the sensors located in the MB?

Thanks for all your assistance...

1066 gskill 2x4gb kit. That work?

I have been using that exact kit for a couple of years in my p-7811 fx.

RE: x9100 overclock : can someone tell me...can you OC this chip using throttlestop and nothing else?
no hardware mods? (I really don't want to do get into that). I read quite a bit about quad but seems are real no go
without a new MB and tons of work/research. So I guess Im in the T9900 vs X9100 state...seems for a few more bucks X9100
is better, but only if its a software only thing and throttlestop works reliably and without attention or interference etc.
also...X9100 - is a different HS stronly suggested? if so, what?
Thanks!

1) Normal. The depression is caused by the pressure between the NB and heat sink. Like pushing down on playdoh.
2) No idea but your temps look slighly high to me. What TIM did you use on the CPU and GPU? You can drop some ICD7 and change your fan settings in your BIOS to drop temps more.
3) No idea

1) Not without HW mod. Multiplier is locked
2) IMO, not worth it. I picked up a T96 and I'm very happy with it. Unless you overclock, I can't see any advantage of paying the extra cash for either of those chips. The difference between the T96 and T99 is nominal
