    Great to hear! Thanks for that information too. Hope you enjoy it! :)

    Does your W230ST have any backlight bleed?

    Im having some trouble finding one of these with an IPS screen as standard in the UK. So far none of the UK resellers ive been to make any mention of an IPS screen in the specifications. Ive spoken with PCSpecialist and they confirmed that their model does not have an IPS panel. Whats going on over here in the UK?

    You mentioned that your i7-4700mq temps are under 90c when gaming/benchmarking at stock clocks without any mods or cooling, how come rlrh, htwingnut and some others are getting 99c on their cpu temps?

    Remember i'm talking about the first test you did and not after when you had to put a stand or cooling or repasting or whatever, i'm talking about when you just got your w230st and you did your initial test with the 3dmark11 and you posted a screenshot and your cpu temps didn't even exceed above 89c.


    Why are the others after running just 3dmark11 or several minutes of a game, the cpu shoots up to 99c and with rlrh at 100c and yours stays a lot cooler in the 80s?





    Another thing for all w230st owners, does your fan make a noise like a grating/grinding noise the same kind of sound like a mechanical drives does? I only have an SSD inside so the only moving part inside my w230st is the fan and I hear this grating noise.

    There are no IPS panels in w230st.
    It's an IPS-like screen, apparently called AAS ( Azimuthal Anchoring Switching).

    PCSpecialist should have it, since they told me they're shipping it with the CHI MEI INNOLUX panel.

    IPS is just a trademark name owned by LG for a type of screen technology, but everyone refers to screens of that type as IPS because they are using almost the exact same tech. Kinda like the same way everyone refers to every tissue as a Kleenex.

    I don't think the rest are having high temp on 3DMark11.
    It is those games that highly rely on CPU speed.

    I haven't fully test mine yet on those games, and I suspect I might have temp reaching 90c and above with the CPU turbo boost enabled.
    Currently popping in my old Sager NP8150 HDD, with most games outdated, and haven't had the chance to re-update it back home. :p

    Well RLRH and me, a simple 3dmark06 and 3dmark11 which takes 5-10 min to complete and my cpu reaches 99c core and idles at 50-55c. Are you telling me that after you ran a simple 3dmark11 or 3dmark06, your cpu temps never goes above 89c? See this is why i'm asking you if yours is like that before you did any of the mods or whatever, all i'm asking is when you did it @ stock no cooling mod, no lifting the bottom none of that etc..




    Can you do a simple test for me, say a 3dmark06 or 3dmark11 which takes 5-10 min to complete if you have time. Do this test with your i7-4700mq and everything stock and no voltage adjustment and no disabling turbo boost and just sit the laptop flat on the table without any cooling pad or mod or that raises the laptop and please tell me your cpu core max temp and gpu. Thanks

    The first test I did was without any adjustment on anything, all at stock, with the turbo boost enabled, and on a flat surface without cooling pad or anything.

    .
    Copy Paste :
    So, max CPU is 86c and Max GPU of 64c.

    Yeah your cpu at 86c is the perfect temperature after running that 3dmark11, but I do not understand why mine is 99c after 3dmark06 or 3dmark11 with the same conditions as yours. What could possibly be wrong?
