RE: HOT Roddy

Thus, you see the real reason
why I told you. I may well be the only 1530 jockey running software that
monitors the internal temperatures.

 

Roddy’s GPU is currently
hovering at 156 F. Not cool at all!

Mr. Royall,

 

I have checked with two people that are really knowledgeable with
the XPS 1530.  Unfortunately, they both looked at me with a question mars
on their face when I told about what you discovered.  They did say that
they would get back to me.  So, when I know something, I will send it your
way.

Yeah, I’ll be interested
in the answer, if they level with you.

Mr. Scott,

 

I apologize as I do not have an answer for your question.  I
will have to get in touch with one of the people over there.  It would be
very interesting to hear what they say.

Richard,

 

Here’s a little something to pass along to the laptop
engineering gnomes.

 

I flashed the latest Dell-recommended revision, A08, to the
BIOS of my XPS M1530, Hot Roddy, yesterday. Now the graphics unit, a Nvidia
8600M, is idling at about 150 F., up to 20 F. above the other components. I
somehow suspect that’s not what the guys had in mind! J I’m seeing GPU spikes up to 175 F.
CPU peaks at 155, which is unremarkable in Roddy since she’s a
hot-blooded little critter.

 

Also, why was the hard-drive temperature sensor disabled n
A08?

 

Scott
