MELOCODI Posted April 17 Share Posted April 17 This is my daily driver, it went through alot of stuff, I never used a laptop as a daily driver before. I've got it for cheap (200€), because the seller was open about damage that this laptop has (it is mostly cosmetic). Original configuration: i7-4800MQ AMD FirePro M5100 16 GB 1600 mHz Hynix 512 GB LiteOn IT LCS-512M6S SSD Dell 330W XM3C3 PSU My upgrades: AMD FirePro M5100 --> NVIDIA Quadro T1000 16 GB 1600 mHz Hynix --> 32 GB 1866 mHz G.Skill RipJaws (I will definitely overclock it at one point) DVD --> Samsung EVO 860 Original SSD --> Samsung EVO 870 I have replaced DVD with SATA caddy, so I have two SATA SSDs. I've placed LCS-512M6S in caddy and dropped in Samsung EVO 860 in a place of an old one. I have also replaced a dead battery with a 97 WH battery. I've dremeled out a small piece of frame to have access to BIOS chips without disassembly, this helped me remove Intel ME, almost completely + I have unlocked SPD write capabilities. UPDATE 1#: Replaced original SSD with Samsung EVO 870, 860 went into DVD ODD slot UPDATE 2#: JAPANESE KEYBOARD UPDATE 3#: Replaced default AVC CPU fan with a Delta fan 1 1 DELL Precision M4800 : Spoiler GPU: NVIDIA Quadro T1000 CPU: i7 4800MQ (Undervolted) RAM: 32 GB G.Skill RipJaws 1866 mHz (4 x 8 GB) Storage (SATA1): Samsung SSD 870 EVO 512 GB Storage (SATA2): Samsung SSD 860 EVO 512 GB Desktop : Spoiler GPU: ASUS ROG STRIX GTX 1070 Ti (Custom heatsink mod) CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 5950X MOBO: MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS COOLER: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: 32 GB HyperX Predator 3733 mHz (OC, non-RGB, 4x8 GB) Storage (NVME): 2x 512 GB Samsung 970 EVO PLUS Storage (SATA): 2x Western Digital Caviar Green 1 TB Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
