    Shame the Nidec Furukawa fan is spot welded assembly, would love to see the inside of the fan but don't want to destructively take it apart.

    I'm prett sure that top portion of the fan either doesn't have or have much smaller blades compared to the underside.

    Really not sure what they were thinking about when doing this.




    Anyways, you can try to use tpfancontrol manual mode and setting the speed to 64, this will disengage the fan and make it even faster than what the bios allows.

    I got around 5600RPM as the max speed (using 7[max], on the 0.63 revision of TPFancontrol).

    As for airflow being drawn through the KB, I finally remembered why that's silly. If water got through the KB tray, then it would not be a water resistant KB, lol. Imagine the water getting into the fan, and spraying everywhere. Droplets would easily find at least one unprotected lead/wire/pad and start corroding things.

    Any thoughts on extended warranty from Lenovo? How good is their customer service? I have an extra year from my CC on top of the base warranty. But I am getting offer of $69 for 3 years extended warranty from Lenovo, along with CC that would make it a total of 4 years which is pretty cheap.

    No clue, the opinions on their customer service range from good to bad (Thinkpad side; consumer Ideapad/Lenovo side is considered poor).

    Latest round of BIOS updates have come around to the X1C6.
    Code:

      Version 1.34
    
    [Important updates]
      Nothing.
    
    [New functions or enhancements]
     - Updated the CPU microcode.
     - Updated the Diagnostics module to version 04.04.001.
     - BootOrderLock was shown as Enable in WMI command if Device Guard was enabled.
     - Supported ALPS TrackPoint Firmware Update function.
    
    [Problem fixes]
    - Improved Thermal FAN behavior.

    I ordered another X1C hoping to get one with a non-mushy keyboard. As luck would have it (or not), the unit was spec'd with the EXACT same keyboard part # (KBD+Bzl_US,FPR,AlpsTP,B,CHY / 01YU651). It's coming later this week.

    Does anyone have a nice clicky keyboard that they like? If so, would you mind sharing the part #?

    Doesn't the X1C6 only use one keyboard FRU?

    Hello all,

    I’m very close to pulling the trigger on a x1 Carbon 6th Gen. This would be my first time purchasing a Think Pad. I will be using this notebook for business but no gaming. However, I will need a quality notebook for MS Office applications and marketing projects that may include Adobe CC Suite. I will also be frequently traveling and on web a lot to manage various projects.

    I believe I have found a good purchase from the Lenovo website.

    The i5-8250u is less expensive but the website is forcing me to get the i5-8350U. Any reason? I don’t see any major differences in the processor. Also, I would save about $135.00 with purchasing the 8250 processor.

    My major configs are as follows:
    8250/8350 processor
    16G Ram
    256G Hard drive
    14" FHD Non Touch 300nits
    WWAN-Fibocom L850-GL 4G LTE-A cat 9
    -Warranty-
    One year Onsite and ADC
    One Year Depot

    Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Right now, I’m paying right under $1400 with the 8350u processor.

    Is the WWAN a good feature or a waste? (Lenovo said I couldn’t install later.)

    Should I be able to select the 8250u processor? Any major or great difference in processor?

    Am I missing any savings?

    Your suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks again,

    Jim

    PM/DM me and I can give you access to the special discount store, I don't profit from this.

    Much better deal.
