|On March 22, Sager made an announcement that users with 85xxxxxxx series serial numbers would be able to install the nVIDIA GeForce Go 6800 Ultra Card themselves. Unfortunately, due to non-heat related issues, we have found that Sager will have to do this installation itself, and those units will have to be sent to Sager for modification of the unit's motherboard. (Reversion update)
Sager will offer a discount of $100 on the nVIDIA GeForce Go 6800 Ultra Upgrade Kit for users who purchased their NP9860 after March 22 that must send their units to Sager for installation of the card. This discount will continue until Sager ships units that support user installation of the card.
To demonstrate the heat distribution capabilities of the NP9860 with GeForce Go 6800 Ultra we have attached some photos of the fans used to cool the unit. The heat dissipation system in the unit is working as designed. Unfortunately, however, a motherboard reversion update is required to accommodate the nVIDIA GeForce Go 6800 Ultra must be performed by Sager.
