Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

Hi Jasim, trying to answer some of your questions: Im using Lifebook AH-531(i5,4GB RAM). What CPU is living inside your 531? I didn't look up the specs of the i3-6100, but I doubt you'll be able to fit it inside the socket. The most powerful CPUs that fit in the socket are (a) i7-2670QM (3.10GHz, 45...

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

Welcome, @Ahmedsafian :) I just edited my reply above regarding the SIM card, apparently there is an option. Heat sinks: the metal heat spreader contacts on the regular CPUs in the data sheets is a square, while those on the QM CPUs have a rectangular shape. That means that the heat pipe covers only...

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

My upgrade so far : :D Nice, well done :) Can i upgrade to intel core i7-2960xm for ah531? The i7-2960XM fits into a FCPGA988 socket, so it looks as if it may be working. The only caution I would like to add is that the i7-2960XM pulls 55W, while the system is designed for 35W CPUs so the i7-2960XM...

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

Sorry but Open Hardware Monitor requires Mono with WinForms to run on Linux, which would cause more pain than it's worth, and Intel® Power Gadget runs on Mac and Windows only. Here's the output of two runs of auto-cpufreq, which shows that the CPU frequencies vary with the load, within the min/max s...

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

@Siema_CoTam I am running my AH531 on Linux, so I can only guess what I see on your last screenshot. Running 'sudo inxi -Fmps' in a terminal gives me CPU: Quad core Intel Core i7-2670QM (-MT-MCP-) cache: 6144 KB clock speeds: max: 3100 MHz 1: 1484 MHz 2: 1254 MHz 3: 1607 MHz 4: 1122 MHz 5: 1374 MHz ...

@syn_burz I just ran a check with wavemon, it shows that the Intel 3160 is running at 5180 MHz. No modifications on the antenna.

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

Hi syn_burz, sorry but I won't be able to help you with that one. What I did was to find a WiFi card that is compatible with Linux. And yes, I remember there was a problem with Bluetooth, but there was plenty of workarounds I found just googling. I would guess if you can find a Windows 7 driver for ...

Re: Upgrading a Lifebook AH531

@aydinozdemirx very impressive, thanks for sharing. Currently my AH531 is sitting on the back shelf, I didn't have too much time lately. I was thinking about attaching two wifi antennas to the casing, similar to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7P4hEcZc3o I have all the parts already, but not ...

@aydinozdemirx you installed a water cooling system? Super cool! Could you give a couple of details, please, and maybe post a photograph or two? How did that fit into the case, in the first place? I have abandoned the idea of a higher resolution screen, the main problem seems to be the connector on ...

Re: Processor upgrade?

Look up the data sheet on google (try and find the latest), and check if there is only one processor listed or several. If there are several, it is quite a good indicator that the CPU sits in a socket.

In the E754 it comes in a socket, not soldered. This may be different in the E734.
