    C90P was the best :D C90S was also good though. I owned both. C90S was older P965 chipset while the C90P used the P35 chipset. The X3380 I could keep under 65C at 3.5ghz in prime 95! I managed to get a 9300 3dmark06 score with the 4670/Q9650 combo! Never tried with the X3380 probably could have got past 9500 as I was able to push it 300mhz faster than the Q9650.

    I really miss the machine. I ended up killing the 4670M in the end. I can't think why it died considering I kept temps so low...I then tried a MXM III 4850! That is a story for another time....

    Voltage. They are weak GPUs, sadly. Rare and weak, that's a bad combo. That's why I'm keeping mine undervolted. And soon supercooled :D I'll try to beat those 55ºC you're talking about... with silence :p

    Q9650 :eek: my other best desktop has a q9550 with a 1ghz overstock OC can just keep it in the 70s.

    re flow? was that the dead 4670 i got from you? that one had a cracked core, which i removed form the card but, i'm not sure i can properly install the new core as i messed up some solder pads during wicking. FYI with a proper reballing service you should be able replace cores fairly easy. i had no issues buying a pre balled care on ebay.

    It's the only 15 incher to feature desktop CPU, not even Clevo has such model :)

    Indeed. FYI the X3380 ccdoublejj is even faster at 3.16ghz stock! It is the fastest LGA 775 1333mhz cpu. Yes the 4670 was the same I sent you. I remember now you saying it arrived damaged! Real shame that!

    Stage III - SuperCooling :cool:

    I'm yet to test the water part though. I have all the necessarily plumbing parts, reserator including, I just have to assemble it.
    Now I'm able to run the X9100 @3.8GHz @1.350v and I can finally run the GPU @stock voltage (1.2v) and overclock the damn thing :D Nothing mind-blowing, just an evolution. Let's not forget that 5920G has crappy thermal design to begin with :)

    it has been a long time since i posted here (completely forgot about it :D)
    in the end i only did a base for the laptop and some hole (2mm) for the vga (around 20 or so, more or less evenly placed) and made a bit bigger the intake hole for the laptop fan
    didnt touch the heatsink
    real good news: just with that and while using the base temps droped 15-20ºC
    the trick seems to be in airflow, more specifically, sucking air from the vga

    the base puts air IN the hole of the laptop fan and sucks air OUT (second fan of the base) from the holes of the vga, thats it
    didnt have to mod anything besides a few holes, and of course making the base, which is nothing more than an old side panel from an old desktop, which i bent, and making 2 hoes in it for 2 fans that were for a HDD
