  1. Upgrading Firmware? Yes. But you need to go into the Settings Menu and ensure some adjustments are made. Be very careful, you can render your system unbootable.
  2. Check your BOIS/UEFI settings. You may need to update the Firmware.
  3. Most of them are limited to 1.5 to 2GB at the most, if even that. That Person will not be able to do much.
  4. Anything well before 2012... And the very low end Hardware...
  5. Probably since I don't really use it that much really.
  6. Well the extra Memory and a SSD will given a Speed increase to be sure.
  7. To my Knowledge there isn't much in the way of Overclocking SW for Linux. So Normally Users will have to go in the BIOS/UEFI and adjust the voltage from there. Laptops? Not much there for the vast majority of them...
  8. I gotten this Thinkpad T430 back in ~2016 from Newegg for ~$160. I use it Primary for testing Distros and letting guests use it instead of My Main Desktop. Ivy Bridge i5 /4GBof RAM and 500GB HDD. I want to replace the HDD with a SSD. The Memory with 8GB to 16GB depending on Pricing, DDR3... However due to it's age, CPU, and the weight, I'm wondering if I should get a newer Notebook instead?
  9. At least you have the budget figured. What are you expecting the System to do?
  10. There is the possibility you could melt the Keyboard. And very few Notebooks are meant to run under high loads for hours at a time. Get a Proper Desktop for that.
  11. But I had to replace the Fans on my Zotac 970. When I opened the case I found one of the Fans dropped right off it's mount. Does Zotac uses cheap Fans or something? I wonder if I had cut one of the Blades of each of the Fans, I would have lost any screws...
  12. I just replaced the Fans on my Zotac 970 GPU over the weekend. And I was wondering how long will these last: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07V86BPBZ?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details I'm considering Upgrading from the i5-4670 to a more current i5 six core CPU. So I want to reuse the 970 until GPU Prices return to normal.
  13. 1) 90 Degrees F is really hot. Scale Back to ~80F. 2) Temperature. Other Parts of the Laptop can and will be effected as well. 3) No. A mere 200Mhz will make nary any difference.
