My custom M4800


MELOCODI

Recommended Posts

This is my daily driver, it went through a lot 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).

"Buy me a coffee" Ko-Fi magic button

Original configuration:

AMD FirePro M5100
16 GB 1600 MHz Hynix
512 GB LiteOn IT LCS-512M6S SSD
Dell 330W XM3C3 PSU
Dead battery

My upgrades:

AMD FirePro M5100 --> NVIDIA Quadro T1000
16 GB 1600 MHz Hynix --> 32 GB 1866 MHz G.Skill RipJaws

Original SSD --> Samsung EVO 870 512 GB 
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 --> MPE-AXE3000H Wi-Fi 6E

You did one hell of a good job getting it back together working. 🙂 You can bung in an mSATA for a third storage medium if you desired. Although mSATA has become a little harder to get but I have a Kingston 240GB in mine.

That's a great idea, I agree, hopefully I will manage to find LA-9772P motherboard one day, because it is a budget build, I think the best way is to find someone who has a broken laptop, so I can get it for cheap (to rock that 120 Hz GSYNC display). I also think about replacing fans with some Delta fans.

Where did you get the T1000? My friend bought a 1050Ti and it doesn't work for him. He ordered a P1000 now and hopefully that one works

Can you tell me where did you get this delta fan from? Perhaps you can send me a link? Is it 12V?

I should have the 4980hq sitting around my house somewhere, worked in the M6800 but not the PC I originally wanted to work with (Alienware 17 R1) 

I am still hunting for that CPU

You using the T400 series Kingston?  I highly recommend them. I have around a dozen of them between 240 and 960gb. I have 2 in my workstation, one in my wife's notebook and one in my sons 2 notebooks. Plus a few extra.  Cheap as chips and plenty speedy for a sata.

UPDATE 6,7,8#:
-Installed a palmrest with FP
-Replaced a keyboard with a Japanese backlit version
-Installed a modified GPU heatsink (dropped temperatures by around 17 degrees which is absolutely insane, it doesn't throttle at all now)

(heatsink was provided by cicichen594 from eBay)
