is kind of weird that 745, 755 needing that much voltage to run stable in notebooks. my 715 rolled @ 2.6 15x 200 1.34V totally stable in desktop board with a asus ct-479 adapter.

Ok, the $23 1.6's were gone, so I picked up a 1.7 off Ebay. (like $40 shipped)
Couple Questions. The more detailed link (from the original poster in his post) is dead. I would like to remove the minimum of parts if possible. Reading the SM, do I really need to remove the display? Remove the DVD Drive? Remove the PCI card antennas? (obviously not if I dont remove the display) etc....
I ask because just last last week when my Son's new I-1520 arrived...the display did not work. I fiddled for over an hour (upped the mem to 2Gb while I was in it) Finally I found the just released SM...and ended up taking more things apart (all I wanted and ended up having to do was re-seat the display cable) then I really needed too. LOL.
PS...the new 1520 Rips! T-7300, 8600 GT, WXSGA 1680x1050, 2Gb DDR2, Vista Premium....it plays BF2, GT2 etc with full settings and looks gorgous. Magnesium Chassis, strong hinges, spill proof keyboard...it's not the lightest in its class but no flexy noises at all. Only down if Dell did not include at DVI/HDMI output. In this day of digital tv's there is no excuse. Shame on you Dell.....
