Extreme laptop hacking
Just finished my mod on the C650D, now using 44% of the CPU and no apparent slowdown.
Before it was throttling even at 19% load on the Phenom 2.
Mod: replace existing 0.4A with a 0.5A fan containing double the blades.
Had to do some plastic butchery and modify the casing with fragments of a broken Ipad screen light spreader as they were just the right thickness.
Now for the warp drive: can I mod the BIOS so it does the following.
1) replace fan table with something a bit less primitive
2) have it boot from the internal SD as well as HDD and "BIOSBoot" so if all disks are unreadable the laptop still runs somewhat and contains a failsafe that can rebuild even onto a totally wiped drive
3) backs up all FATs, etc to failsafe storage *2 so in the event of malware the drive can still be salvaged.
