right now, just today, I have found 1 grey pixel on my screen after 3 long years. it is on the top of the screen, first line and right in the center.
I start to look and now my mind and eyes fix at this stupid dead pixel cuz guys like you are constantly reporting small tiny defects that nobody cares.
You still didnt report us how many degrees you have? so why do not you grab a thermometre and report to sager??. they will tell you what to do!
What I meant is 5 in the center to return. Secondly I never said I hated the 1 pixel being dead. ive just seen one common feature that odd. Most people have gotten there’s without any, and others have gotten them with 10 or more. I was just saying with 95% of the people here reporting no dead pixels with the 3790, the few that I have seen/heard also had a heating issue. I do realize these two do not go hand and hand, but rather a weird occurrence.
As for my temps I have posted them many times before. And as for my friends temps they are not off by much but he’s in the process of getting an RMA from Sager. The touchpad to the far left is 114-116F. It also shows signs of what mine was when I first corrected it before I replaced most the factory contacts with new thermal stuff. His is hot all over, not in spots. The avg temp all around the place is about 108-110F. Again this does not matter if it’s running at the 600 MHz or the 1.7 GHz, with full load or without.
So like I sad before, well aware of what’s going on. I have started to see a trend of heat issues with the 3790, but I can only hope its few and far between others. I can only hope Clevo will do the responsible thing and look into there product.
Don’t get me wrong on loving my 3790, its a bad arse little bugger. I sit down in the commons area and somehow grab the attention of all.
All in all great machine, its just been a pain to get Clevo to accept that the touch pad should not be 120 degrees and still have it be in "design specs". Needless to say they are trying to work with the american office, because the Japan office is tired of me calling every day for almost two weeks now.
