As we all know by now, there are heat issues with the Sager 8790/Clevo D870P. The weak part is the inaducate cooling of the GPU (grafic processor). The fans are all controlled via the temperature of the CPU (main processor). A cool...
Gigabyte have four different WLAN Cards (mini-PCI). GN-WIAG02 (108 Mbit/s), GN-WI01HT (108 Mbit/s), GN-WI01GS (54 Mbit/s) and GN-WIKG (54 Mbit/s). Will they all work in a Clevo D870P (Sager 8790)?

Would not a thin layer of thermal compound improve the heat transfer to the metal plate/heat pipe?
About the thermally conducting tape or frag tape as some of you call it. 3M/Scotch has a thermally conductive tape, 9882, 9885 and 9890. Thickness are: 2, 5 and 10 mil. In mm that is: 0.054, 0.127 and 0.254.
Which one to use inside...
I have now runned the SuperPI test with different settings of ClockGen.
Default setings 3000/200/200/44/22, gave me 39 seconds. Underclocking to 2000/133/133/44/22 gave me 53 seconds. It seems to work!
The GPU is the weak point of the 8790 (Clevo D870P in my case). Which way is the best for downclocking?
There have been a thread on the ATI Tool. After installing the lastest ATI driver (220.127.116.11) and the ATI Tool, the default...
