I've had my B130 for a while now and was recently looking around to do something to speed it up. I never considered it before other than the 2 sticks of 1gb mem.
Found this place through a search and have read for two days. This thread and the one that's 51 pages about the FSB pin mod are very informative. I've decided to try it.... I've been convinced that my laptop now out of warranty is fair game now.
I have the 735 and by what I can glean that seems pretty successful w/o a volt mod. But if needed I can manage.
My old boxes, amounting to a Abit BH6, Sloket 3, 566 Celery @ 1000. lol... still works.
Then my Abit VP6 w/ dual P3 700's @ 1000. Got to love that Soft Menu!! Both boxes have big copper Vantecs with fans on them that sound like a freakin helicopter is in the room.
Well anyway I told myself I would not mess with the laptop. After the memory install and doing some peaking around at the guts I changed my mind. Because not messing with the laptop is just a silly thing to do.
Wish me luck.
Oh yeah, Hi everyone.
