    Based on my experience with the Gtx 1070 notebook mxm If the EC of the system board can't properly read your GPU's temp it will probably assume the worst and rate your GPU temp as 85c the fan will default to 100% unless you over ride it with a fan control program YMMV

    Hi guys.
    Got a ZBook 15 with k610m. I noticed that it had a few pixels (1 pixel line maybe 1 cm long), periodically flickering in a line on the bottom left edge of the screen (under the windows 10 start logo).

    Was only a few pixels. When I disabled Quadro and ran intel only - the issue disappeared. Obviously just a few pixels are affected. Though is this an early sign of graphics failure?

    I just picked up a ZBook 15 refurbished from OfficeDepot.com for $369. It has a 4800MQ and Quadro K1100M and it works great. I replaced the crappy mechanical HDD with a 1TB Samsung SSD and that really perked it up. This fan control software works great as well. Thanks for sharing that back in 2014. :)

    This machine is old, but it great shape and the build quality is impressive. For $369 it beats the stuffing out of the Samsung turdbook that I paid a lot more for, then returned for a refund because it was so wimpy. For the price, hard to beat. Anything newer in the sub $1000 price range is pure garbage.

    This happens on mine as well. Sometimes it's very noticeable, sometimes I don't mind. My K610m has crashed multiple times in the past, mostly when playing PUBG Mobile on the official emulator. I really hope it doesn't die on me, the integrated graphics are much weaker.

    EDIT 1: BTW, has anyone tried to upgrade a Zbook 15 G1 with a GTX965m? What about the M2200? I've been looking into upgrading my rig for better gaming performance.

    EDIT 2: My zbook came with only two ram slots. Has anyone tried to install 16GB modules on this model? It would be very helpful to know :)

    If anyone that has an old notebook with a weak GPU is looking for something fun to play, Singularity runs great on my old HP ZBook 15 with a Quadro K1100M (very weak) and it delivered a steady 55-70 FPS with all of the graphical settings enabled. I recorded this on my desktop, but I tested it last night for roughly an hour on the ZBook 15 and it was perfect. It's an old title, but still a good game if you are not familiar with it.

    What's a reasonable price to pay for a 230W docking station?

    Prices for them on ebay seem to be a total rollercoaster, ranging from 15 all the way up to 200 bucks. Attached is a screenshot of what I believe is a scam.
