Dell :: Video Guide: Changing Thermal Paste(AS5) On Studio XPS 1645

Feb 23, 2010

Due to popular demand of people requesting a guide on how to change their thermal paste I decided to make a video guide for the community as a way of giving back. Enjoy and sorry if I'm no high quality youtube blogger. This is my first video ever.

Changing Studio XPS 1645 Thermal Paste(AS5) from XmDXtReMeK on Vimeo.

You need isopropyl alcohol(99% or high purity)/arctic clean solution would work too with Q-Tips to clean up the previous compound. So please have that handy guys.

Also watch this video on why I will not spread the compound but put a pea size dab of the compound and let the pressure spread it. You do not want air pockets between your cpu and heatsink, it will cause a lose of the thermal interface and wont work optimal.

Dell :: Changing Thermal Paste - M1530

Apr 22, 2009

Well i finally decided that i should give this a try after seeing my temps creep up by about 1 degreeC per week. I just ordered some Arctic Silver 5. Ive looked at all the thermal paste topics here and still have a few questions. Firstly, what exactly is the thermal pad and do i have to worry about it? I saw that some people had to remove the pad but when i read through

http://www.robertbromfield.com/Tutor...he%20M1530.pdf tutorial i didnt see anything about taking off or replacing a thermal pad.
Secondly, when applying the thermal paste, do i want to cover the whole "black square" of the cpu/gpu with a thin layer?


And lastly, i heard that this may void your warranty. I was wondering, if i did break my lappy somehow, couldnt i just clean it off so that when the tech guy comes i just claim that i never even opened it up?

Dell :: SXPS 1340 Thermal Paste Replacement Guide

Aug 26, 2009

Replacing Dell's default thermal paste in the Dell Studio XPS 1340 can lower your cpu, gpu and ambient temperatures by as much as 15C/60F.

When I first received my SXPS 1340 from Dell, my temperatures were:
THRM-57C, CPU-52C, GPU-62C.

For me, these temperatures were O.K., but I knew I could lower them by replacing the thermal paste.

My temperatures after replacing the thermal paste were:
THRM-48C, CPU-34C, GPU-50C. Note that after a month or two of having the MX-2 inside your computer, the cooler it will become as it settles

Dell :: Warranty- Changing My Thermal Paste On My CPU And GPU Chipset

Dec 2, 2008

I was thinking of changing my thermal paste on my CPU and GPU chipset, many ppl out there saying this would void the warranty and hell yeah it will, but the question is, will DELL engineer would be able to differentiate between stock silicone paste and new thermal paste (for my case is Coolermaster Nanofusion), anyone ever get busted by modding XPS?

Unless you change the obvious purple/pink thermal pad at the ACPI chipset to copper sheet then it's a totally different story.

Dell :: Has Anyone Replaced The Thermal Paste / Thermal Pad On A E6400/M2400?

Apr 2, 2009

I have come to grips with the fact that my E6400 (see specs below) has idle temps of around 42 for both CPUs and around 62 for the GPU (while docked).

While these are not dangerous, and while the slow fan speed is very quiet and therefore doesn't bother me, I refuse to accept defeat so easily.

So, I am thinking of replacing the thermal paste and possibly the thermal pad on my E6400. There is at least one person here at the Latitude/Precision sub-forum who did that, with amazing results

Acer :: 6920g Thermal Pad Or Thermal Paste For The Northbridge

Jul 16, 2009

i have a question for everyone who has removed the heatspreader from an acer 6920g. Did the northbridge made contact with the heatspreader by a thermal pad or by a thermal paste ? mine had something that looked like a thermal pad but when i tried to remove it , it tore into small pieces ( i know a thermal pad is not like that ). i used a thermal paste when i put everything back together. Should i open it up again and use a thermal pad for the northbridge ?. In everst in the sensor menu it shows 42 degrees celsius for the motherboard sensor ( i assume that is the northbridge).

Dell :: M1530 Gpu Thermal Paste?

Apr 22, 2009

I just had the motherboard/video card on my m1530 replaced by the dell guy because of the old defective graphics card issue. I watched him do the whole thing, and when he re-attached cooling mechanism to the motherboard, he used new thermal paste for the cpu, but not the video card.

I asked him about this, and he said that the surface of the gpu is different and doesn't need it. I don't really believe this, since it looks just like the desktop gpus that I always use thermal paste on. I'm getting pretty high temps now (65-70C idle).

Dell :: How To Apply Thermal Paste

Apr 5, 2008

Alright, my CPU is idling at 75c and my GPU is at 80c, I've opened up my M170 and It didnt seem dusty at all, so I went out and bought a small tube of AC5 which people say will help.

Now the problem Is I have no idea where to apply it, or how much is needed. I dont really know anything about hardware components, so If anyone has any pics which could show me where and how much to apply that would great.

The M170 is currently in peices at my desk and Im typing this on a MacBook, and I really dont want to spend anymore time on the OSX than I have to.

I already undervolted my computer which did help, but the fan is so weak now that I feel i need to do everything possible to keep it from overheating. Does anybody have an extensive guide on applying thermal paste?

I really need to do this. I am pretty noob at computer hardware, So i would need a guide that would even tell me how to take apart my entire case/etc... I am sorta running out of options.

Dell :: Anyone Replace The Thermal Paste On A Vostro 1500?

Mar 10, 2010

My temps are starting to creep up and I suspect the thermal paste is the culprit. I'm looking to replace it. If anyone has done it before. My question is, does the Vostro use a thermal pad or just a heatsink on on top of the CPU?

I checked the service manual and it made no mention of a thermal pad. Just looking to make sure before I tear it down.

Dell :: Reapplied Thermal Paste - M1530 Hotter Than Ever

Jul 21, 2009

So ive been dabbling with the thermal paste on my m1530 for a few months now but havent really stressed the gpu to know for sure. Today however, while playing l4d, my gpu temp got up to 88 degrees C and my cpu was in the high 70s.

I havent seen these kinds of temps since i got my mobo/heatsink replaced a year ago. I have opened up my laptop and my fan looks a little dusty but i am not sure if that would warrant a 88 degree gpu temp.

I am wondering if this could be because i applied the paste incorrectly? I am quite sure i did it right and i followed the instructions that were posted on here for m1530s exactly.

Dell :: Quiet And Cool. Thermal Paste Replaced! 38@idle 73@load

Mar 25, 2009

I replaced the thermal paste of the CPU and the GPU with "Coollaboratory liquid pro". And I replaced the thermal pad of the northbridge with "Arctic Silver 5" thermal paste.

Here are my sesults (in a 20 degrees Clesius enviroment, T9600, 2,8GHz, stock voltage):
73 dregrees Celsius at 100% load
(instead of 92)
39 dregrees Celsius at 0% load (fan off)
(instead of 45)

According to my research and different experiments this combination is my actual optimum.
The cooler and more silent system supports my usage of voice recognition (using the internal mic).
Of cause later the voltage could be reduced using rmclock.....

HP/Compaq :: HP Envy 15 (V2) Inside Pictures For People Who Want To Reapply Thermal Paste

Apr 25, 2010

I decide to reapply thermal paste and took couple of pictures to show how to do it and what kind of parts you need to remove.

First you need to download service manual and read it. All the instructions are there for how to dissemble the notebook. Following pictures might help you to understand service manual.

Things you need to unplug before remove the top panel

Things you need to unplug/unscrew before remove heatsinks

Here's the CPU picture without heatsink

Cleaned CPU heatsink

GPU picture without heatsink

Cleaned GPU heatsink

I use white cotton cloth and alcohol to clean the CPU/GPU and heatsink(s) and use AS5 as a thermal paste. CPU/GPU temp drop nearly 4C-5C. I need to wait until AS5 settle down.

I'm expecting another 2C drop after that.

HP G6-2002au Display :: Changing Dedicated Video Memory In Notebook

Jul 1, 2012

I have a g6-2002au notebook, running Win7 home premium 64bit on dual core 64bit cpus, 2.7ghz clocks and an AMD Radeon 7520G gpu, that is mostly used to preview (for a class) movie projects created in a video editor.  And for video project files - stored on a usb stick inserted into one of the usb ports - that have a playing time longer than approx 4 minutes, the play presentation runs for a while and then becomes stuttering - pauses the image for a while, altho the audio continues, then the video seems to catch up, and after a short period repeats this stop and go activity.  Like the editor keeps running out of data faster than its work space is filled up.
 
I sourced equivalent (to the original brand and specs) RAM memory to increase the installed RAM to 8Gb without apparent impact on this.  A change of memory stick type - usb2 to usb3 - worked a bit but the issue remains.  And disciussions with others using notebooks - Toshiba's actually - did not have this problem.
 
The dedicated video memory in the machine is 512mb (windows display settings details), and this probably isn't enough for video editing.  With 8Gb of RAM now available, there should be plenty to enable me to increase the amount dedicated for video editing.  Changing that seems to be a bios function, but there isn't any apparent/accessible setting in the Insyde F.03 bios on the machine to enable me to do that. 
 
So, the questions are,
1.  Can I increase the dedicated video memory on this specific notebook?
2.  if so, how?

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Ways To Apply Thermal Compound

Mar 12, 2010

Heat issue has been a major issue to most of the SXPS 16 owners. Most users have replaced their Thermal Compounds but when some didn't get the expected results they tried different ways to apply the Paste.

I welcome all the owners of StudioXPS 16(1640,1645,1647) to gather together in this thread and tell the experience y'all had and which way of applying the paste on individual GPU and CPU worked for y'all and which Thermal Compound y'all used.

Also provide the CPU and GPU temp before and after the thermal compound replacement.

Dell :: Studio 15 Changing The Processor + Graphics Card

Nov 18, 2008

I'm currently wondering how easy (or even if its possible) changing the processor in a studio 15 would be.

Secondly i'm curious as to expensive a new processor would cost, 2.5GHz preferably as my current processor is 2.0GHz.

My second question is: Can the graphics card be changed without soldering in the studio 15. I'm unsure whether the graphics card is integrated or not.

My current graphics card is: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3450 (256mb)

I was wondering how much a new card would cost and the difficulty to replace.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1645 / Studio 1747 Wireless Configs

Dec 3, 2009

Does anyone have any idea why? Is this something affecting Dell globally or is it just UK/Europe in a mess?

I guess I could survive with just wireless G, but it seems ridiculous to be limited to that these days;

I guess I could also just order it and pick up an intel/dell Wireless N card for ~25 and install it myself,

but again the question arises, why is it necessary? I assume some of you do have an 802.11n card of some description in your 1645/1747's have you seen any problems with it? .....

Dell :: Studio XPS 1645 Or Studio 1747 ???

Nov 6, 2009

I'm university student and ntb is meant to be carried almost daily (16" is ok for me), it's mainly for multimedia oriented jobs, some programming in C and Mathematica, some photoshop or even premiere (occasionaly), A LOT of movie watching. I also want it to be futureproof and well-built.

Dell XPS 1645 meets most of my criteria, but there are few things I'm unsure about...
1) after reading a couple of reviews and many posts on this forum I'm really doubtful if RGB-LED is worth the extra money. I'm not doing colour sensitive job (however I do sometimes edit RAW images in PS), but i want things on the display to look natural, especially in FullHD movies... (and I'm occasional gamer too)

Those who had honor to work with RGB-LED: would you pay for it in my position???

And just to make sure I haven't overlooked something: biggest DISadvantages of RGB-LED are supposed to be: inaccurate colors, bigger power consumption and some heat produced;
while advantages should be: 0,4" gain in size, wider gamut and (maybe) better brightness...

Do you know any more to be added?

2) I'm also considering usual Studio 17 with Core i7 720QM (almost the same config), because it should be cooler, it has numpad and place for additional hdd (I'd buy 80GB intel ssd 34nm for system while keeping stock 500GB for data, I think it's beatiful idea), but what I DISlike about studio 17 is: dimensions, weight, speakers and design (and maybe a bit worse overal built quality).

So which one do you think is better for me?

3) how does combined e-sata/usb work? Since I have a external e-sata drive I have to plug 2 cables at the moment: USB for power and e-sata... With this 2-in-1 port do I need only 1 special cable? Or is it meant to be either/or thing??? From the placement of combined e-sata/usb on the opposite side of ntb than other USBs I'd say that 1 cable should be enough,

Dell :: Studio XPS 1645 Vs Studio XPS 1647

Feb 23, 2010

I am looking to get a Studio XPS 16 soon, but can't quite decide on which model to get and had a few questions...

1) What is the battery life of the 1647 (i5) compared to the 1645 (i7) assuming they have the same specs. I've read that i5's should last longer, but I really couldn't find anything comparing the two for these systems.

2) When configuring the 1645 and 1647 side-by-side with the same specs. The 1647 is about the same price as the 1645, if not more (depending on which processor selected). I thought the i5's were supposed to be less expensive than the i7's. Since they are about the same price, would it be better to go with the i7? Any reason to choose the i5 over i7?

Dell :: Studio XPS 1645

May 4, 2010

I generally use my computer each day, and if I close the lid at night without shutting the computer off, in the morning the computer will be off.

That wouldn't be a bad thing except many times it'll shut the computer off so I lose everything that was opened up. But the only weird thing is that it won't happen every time.

I was just wondering if any of you have this problem and if there was some setting that I overlooked each time when I looked to change that. It's not a big thing, but I had a Dell computer provided by school and it would still be on in the morning after using it at night...........................
