    Question W700 Throttling

    ACER W700 is having Throttling issue when turbo boost is working for more than 20 secondes, CPU and GPU will throttle down.

    Someone will eventually "mod" the BIOS and post it here.

    When CPU/GPU reach 60C they throttle down.

    I don’t know how to edit insydeH20 bios and don’t know where is the thermal sensor. Those are the only way to get rid of this early throttling.
    Yes, is the BIGGEST flaw by far

    who on here did that in the past for ep121 and others?? I am just wondering, as I would like find someone to mod the BIOS for the T902 too. It has GPU throttling problems, no cpu throttling though. It amazes me the OEM's are so scared of these things overheating that they are intentionally crippling the systems, instead of beefing up the cooling systems.

    makes me angry. Many of these new systems are over-specced for the cooling solutions.

    Any one here already dismounted his W700 ?
    I can't find that thermal sensor from any dismount pictures so far.

    Might not be a separate sensor. Might use the internal embedded sensor in the chip.
    Which disassembly pictures have you looked at?

    FYI, this is the insides of the W700 and how its cooling works. (Just in case anyone were wondering)

    Can you locate any thermal sensor ?

    I have no idea what it might look like. (here is the one from EP121)

    I can't see any sensors mount like that. That's not to say that there aren't any thermal sensors - they may be mounted directly to the PCB.
    The thing is though, that sensors like that are a thing of the past. Nowadays most chips have integrated sensors, as do the i3 and i5 on the w700.

    Even is there are separate sensors, they would look like any other generic transistor/resistor so locating them isn't all that obvious.

    (Note that I'm not looking at an actual product myself, just at disassembly pictures found on the net).

    Here's the CPU area of the W700:

    If you're right, then we're doomed...
    Let's wait for mengpo (guys who took those photos) to give us a definitive answer.
