I have too many Precisions and too little time

There is a guy who was able to upgrade his M4800 GPU to a T1000 card.

have you seen it? I am thinking about doing the same thing (if it works with M4800, it should also work with 7520) but can't find any info beside the youtube videos showing the results and not the upgrade process itself.
I don't really care about upgrading my Precisions beyond factory specs.

Good, my USA contact has shipped my stuff. Should be getting the M40 and M6300 next week or so.

I can also reassemble the M4700 I stole it's CPU from too.

Holy SHIT UPS is on fire right now, parcel picked up the 18th, delivered today in the early afternoon!

M40: ****ed hinge :( at least it's chassis is in better condition than my personal M40! It also BSoD'ed after installing drivers on Win2k for whatever reason, which fixed itself after I updated the BIOS to A12
M6300: No CompuTrace, yay! Stole it's X9000 for my M2300 and put in a T7500 instead. I honestly have no idea what to do with two M6300's now. Both would need SSDs and chargers to be even remotely resellable. The one I bought in the USA has the FX 3600M though!
3940XM: M4700 reassembled with said CPU and it's working as it should.
M4600 IO board: still needs doing, I am done wrenching for tonight.

One freshly repaired M4600 later:


Need to reinstall Win7 though, as it doesn't want to update correctly :(

And indeed, the IO board was broken. The USB ports on the left are now working correctly once again.

What the **** is wrong with people? Offering $360 for a M6700 Covet in bad condition with a cracked E2E glass?

Idiot me managed to nuke the Windows install of his M2400 by overclocking and installing updates at the same time lmfao, at least the X9100 I recieved is working.

HELL YES, FINALLY FOUND A T7600G! This one also doesn't have a cracked die unlike the one I bought last year. Untested though, but I have great confidence that it's working.

Gonna be real interesting to see how much faster the T7600G at 3 something GHz compared to the 2.33 GHz T7600.
