When will we see X220 with Low-Voltage CPU, e.g. i5-2537

Question: When will we see X220 with Low-Voltage CPU, e.g. i5-2537

Dear Lenovo,dear x220-engineers, after three years of staying with a *insert-name-of-a-popular-u.s-it-brand* notebook I have the desperate need to upgrade to a new, ultra portable device. Gladly this coincides perfectly with the release of x220. Besides perfect display, perfect weigth and perfect price there is one thing bugging me... There are numerous reports of the standard-cpus creating lot of heat and thus prompting also fan noise. Personally I would prefer a slightly less powerful CPU like the low voltage i5-2537 over the standard ones. These ones are stated to have half the TPD as standard ones. Therefore I would like to know, can we expect x220 variants with these lv-cpus? Possibly also as university-model? Thanks in advance.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Heh. I don't think Lenovo Forums censors other brands names. (Apple, Asus, Acer, Dell, Gateway, HP, SONY, Toshiba)The X220 fan issues might be an issue not necessarily related to the heat of a full power CPU. Probably want to stay tuned to the X220 fan thread. Can't remember if anyone reported egregious thermal output on the X220.

Just purchased a new X220 w/ only 4GB. Planning on upgrading the RAM myself and I have a couple of questions 1) Does the voltage of RAM matter?2) I see most on Newegg is 1.5V but a few are 1.35V, what is the voltage of the ones that come stock w/ the X220?3) If I got crazy and decided to go 16GB (2x8GB) would they work? Thanks

Answer:X220 RAM Voltage and 16GB

16GB RAM works fine for my X220. I purchased the 1.35V kit because theoretically if the laptop can run them at 1.35V it would consume less power and improve battery life, however I still have no idea how to check the actual voltage - the laptop could probably be running the SODIMMs at 1.5V instead of 1.35V though.

Hi, I would like to ask you a question about battery woltage, because I am unhappy with my X220's battery life. I looked into power manager and found out, that 6-cell (maybe others too) is designed to run in 11.10 V, but mine runs often in 12.15 V. I am not pro in these things, but - is it normal, that it runs in different than designed values? Many thanks and have a nice daySkrble

Answer:X220 - voltage question

Hi Skrble,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
The design voltage is the minimum voltage the battery should be charged. Jin Li had already explained in this thread the difference between actual voltage and design voltage displayed in the power manager.
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

         At the end of last year we purchased just over 330 T410 laptops. In 6 months we have had 13 with cracked LCDs. I can say that 2 where caused by the users. Pen left on one units keyboard and there was a dropped unit with scratches on the corner were visible. If this continues we will end up with 26 units per year getting mysterious cracke. We did not experience these problems with the Dell D620/D630 series we had for 4 years prior to the T410.  One of our users claimed that the support tech at IBM told him that the LCDs could not support high temperature variations. No details as to what these variations are. We are nationwide so each area will have a variety of temps.  I remember back about 4 years ago watching live demos by IBM reps that would stand on the laptops and pour water in the keyboard. The units looked tough. Has something changed? The specs looked reallty good when we were comparing manufacturers last year.   Anybody else experiencing a high failure rate of unexplainable cracked LCDs ?Thanks

Just today, while browsing around in the power manager, I noticed that the values for "design voltage" and "voltage" under the "battery" tab are different!. The "design voltage" reads 11.10V while the "voltage" reads 12.06V. I have a feeling that this is actually normal...but maybe someone can confirm my suspicions? Out of curiousity, why do these two values differ and what does this mean? I am using using a T510 running on win7 x64, if that is of any help at all.

Answer:"design voltage" vs. actual "voltage" in power manager

actual voltage will drop off over time, while design voltage provides a constant reference point to tell you what sort of condition your battery is in, and whether it needs replacement.

Answer:wwan card in thinkpad t410 2537-BA2

Hi, tejas08881
 
From what I can see, the card is not in your system by default, so you would have to procure one. The card for your system is the Gobi 2000 for worldwide use, as shown here in this KnowledgeBase article. The correct part number for it is 60Y3183 and you should be able to give Lenovo India a call at 1-800-3000-9990 to order one if you'd like. Just make sure that the WWAN card is Lenovo-branded, as other cards will not be recognized in the BIOS.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

Especially the CPU Voltage apparently.Can someone tell me if these are ok...(taken from everest)CPU Core = 1.31V+3.3V = 3.36V+5V = 5.05V+12V = 12.22VIn the BIOS the CPU Vcore reads at 1.3VSo do these look normal enough for a P4 3.2Ghz with HT?

Answer:cpu core voltage and Vcore voltage

nothing to do with voltages. If your voltages were wrong, the processor either wouldnt work or would blow up.The thing to look at are bottlenecks in your system. Maybe you have small ram, or maybe your hard drive came from an older pc and is only ata66. Maybe you have the older syle ribbon on your hard drive?There are lots of things to check. Look at what your virtual ram is set to, maybe it's too low.What sort of applications slow the pc down?

Question: CPU Voltage

I have an EPOX 8KTA3+PRO M/B/ with an AMD 2000 Processor. On bootup I am not show the AMD XP 2000 as being the installed processor. What I do get is an AMD Athlon (tm) 4 1733 MHz, (133 x 13.0) FSB 266.

I have asked this question before with helpful replies but not the solution.

Why is the processor 'accepting the true speed is 1667 MHz' not shown as an AMD 2000 on the Boot screen? Also what would the voltage for the processor be? On the M/D the default is +0.V. which is the setting at the moment. Others I can jumper to are +0.1v through to 0.4v.

Everything is working fine just a niggling problem. Many thanks everyone for any comments offered everyone.
 

Answer:CPU Voltage

the motherboard bios are showing the true speed of the chip apparently, not the product name. If your processor is truely running at 1.73 gig it is an amd 2100+, not a 2000

The voltages you are describing sound like voltage adjustments used for overclocking, your processor at present is running the default voltage, hence you can raise the voltage in .1 increments up to the max of .4v above default.

my 12v is running at a steady 11v, but the computer is stable.

is this a big problem or not?

Answer:12v voltage ok?

well if its true its defintly a problem and it will likely crash on load , its possible the software you used didnt read it right, its best to look in bios or use the mobo manufacturer software

Question: Voltage/OC'ing

Im somewhat smart overclocker so one thing im still fuzzy on,,Voltage.

I can get my 2.4 northwood Celeron to 3.0Ghz [email protected] pc-2100 Kingston 256X2 with thermalTake coolers running at 333mhz.
Max CPU Temp running prime95 is 42 degrees C.
with mobo default voltage settings, can i up them a little to gain performance or just more heat??
 

Answer:Voltage/OC'ing

First, read the sticky on the top of this forum.

http://www.techspot.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=10514

Secondly, when overclocking, you can up the voltage if you find the system becomes less stable at higher frequencies. It may not make it perfect, but better. Adding more voltage, however, give a better chance of smoking something in your system. I wouldn't recommend anything more than +0.2 above the manufacturer's recommendation.
Good luck,

Question: Ram voltage

The ram i have is supposed to be 1.65 voltige thing,but in the bios it reads a lower voltage,not at home now so cant see exactly what the voltige is,but i know it is lower than 1.65.Now can i push it up to 1.65 or will that be bad or something for the board?

Answer:Ram voltage

I guess you're using ASUS Probe for voltages?

For your mobo, I see some memory for 1.5v and the majority for 1.65v. If you memory is supposed to be 1.5v, I'd leave it. I'm not even sure I'd push the voltage up to 1.65 unless you started to get BSODs. Nothing bad would happen to the mobo.

Question: RAM Voltage

Hey peeps,

Just building my new system and was reading in the manual for the board that Intel says not use RAM over 1.65v.

Problem is my RAM is rated to run at 1.85v.

I checked in the BIOS and it looks like the system is undervolting but obviously when i start gaming that will volt-up.

Question is - Will i need to buy new ram as well?

Thanks for the advice

EDIT: I have left everything on auto

Answer:RAM Voltage

Buying new RAM would be a wise choice. It's likely the warning is there because too much voltage to the RAM could damage other components, such as the memory controller.

Question: GPU Voltage

Evening all, I just have a minor dilemma with the Sapphire Trixx software I have, or possibly even something else entirely. FYI, I've been using Crysis 2 as my main benchmark alongside 3DMark and Heaven DX11 since that game is quite power hungry with DX11 enabled.

Basically though, I have an HIS Radeon HD 7950 in my new system and for some reason the voltage being pumped into it seems to change by itself. I believe the stock voltage for this card is 1,087 under load, since hitting the reset button in Sapphire trixx always puts it back to this figure, and since anything lower causes Crysis 2 to crash within minutes on stock clocks when running it with DX11 & settings at full pace.

For some reason though even when I load a stock or overclock profile, apply and save it in Trixx, sometimes when I reboot my system the clocks stay the same but the voltage has randomly decreased to low 900's, which just isn't enough juice to power the card even at stock clocks.

I've been able to play Crysis 2 at the highest settings I can muster (1920 x 1200, DX11, High res and everything Ultra) on stock clocks with 1,087 voltage for several hours with no issues at all, and the same with my current overclock and voltage at 1,125.

It's worth me noting however, that this voltage decrease happens even when I leave the voltage at Trixx's "reset" value of 1,087 before shutting down for the night. I have disabled Catalyst Control Center since that caused a... Read more

Question: RAM voltage

Ive got 4 gigs of ram (1 gig sticks) and was wondering if it was okay that 2 sticks use 1.8v while the other two use 1.9. Their speed and timings are all the same.
 

Answer:RAM voltage

That depends.

Firstly does the 1.9 volt memory run OK by itself in your motherboard?
Some boards can only supply 1.8v.

Secondly can the BIOS recognise 4G?

Thirdly can your operating system address 4G?

Note

DDR memory is 2.5 volt

DDR2 memory is 1.8 volt standard but there are modules in the range 1.8 to 2.1 volts

DDR3 memory requires 1.5 volts.

Question: Voltage too low?

I am trying to troubleshoot a machine belonging to a friend who has had a variety of problems with it, including no or sometimes badly screwed up video. And when I had him run Memtest on it it apparently turned up a LOT of errors. On an earlier occasion, when he was having similar problems, Mentest ran clean.

I now have the machine on my bench, and have seen no sign of any problems whatsoever. Memtest ran over night without showing any errors.

BUT. I ran System Info for Widnows on it and the "Sensors" page shows one voltage that seems suspiciously low. The measurement showing for +3.3V is only 1.79V. So, two questions:

What is the 3.3V supply used for and what is the acceptable range?

I assume that this supply is derived on the motherboard vs. coming directly out of the power supply. Regulated down from the +5V supply. Correct?

For reference, here is a complete list of values reported:

CPU VCORE ... 1.10
AUX ... 2.50
+3.3V ... 1.79 <---(!)
+5V ... 5.7
+12V ... 12.03
-5V ... -4.74

Hi!
The computer at work wasn't stable lately. You are working, suddenly everything halts, you can't do anything. (Even Ctrl+Alt+Delete).
You have to reset it or even turn off (from the power supply), wait a minute, then turn it on again.

I decided to look at the PC Health Status inside the BIOS SETUP. And I got an important piece of information, look at this:

CPU Temp: 54C / 130F
MB Temp: 33C / 91F

CPU Fan Speed: 2500 RPM

VCore: 1.352V
3.3V: 2.864V
5V: 5.350V
12V: 12.196V

So, isn't it the 3.3V? It is marked in Red inside the setup.
What should I do? Should I change the power supply to a more powerful one?
I think it is only 180 Watts.

I was just wondering about my CPU voltage as well as other system voltages.

I Have a 500 watt power supply.

+3.3V-14A-----\
------------------|210W
+5V---25A-----/

+12V 13A ----- 210W
-12V 0.8A -----12W
-5V 0.5A ------5.0W
500 Watt Maximal combined output.

My CPU is a 1Ghz (1000Mhz) intel Celeron, Code name: Tualatin Technology 0.13um

I have it overclocked to 1.28Ghz (1280Mhz) Which it handles ok, no freezes etc.
The current FSB is 128Mhz, as you can see the multplier is 10x.

When i open up CPUZ and look at the CPU Core voltage it is 1.472Volts, but it is always changing, to 1.56V 1.24V even 1.88V, But only quickly. Is this OK?? even when it is not overclocked it still changes but not as much. When overclocked the Temp under load is 36 Degress C. Idle at 29 or 30. (varies on ambient temp.)

Also the ram is 512MB SDRAM 133MHz.

Also I have a NIVIDIA Geforce 6200 A-LE 256MB DDR2 GRAM. AGP 4x. 35 dgress C idle
45 under load.

The 3.3 voltage is running at 3.28V
And the 12V at 12.16Volts.

I know theses differnces in voltage are not much. But Does it mean any thing significant???

Thanks.

Id stick to 1.5v or under for 24/7 use unless your really wanting to push it. There's no need to get selfish with a quad unless your going for benchmarks. Generally temps and voltage are the two biggest killers.

Question: RAM voltage

I am thinking of getting a new computer, and I will go with a gigabyte motherboard. They say "4 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets"
I was wondering exactly what that meant. I checked the memory support list and found that some of the memory modules looked like they were 1.65v. I was wondering if I could use a 1.65v memory module (kingston Hyperx T1 2000MHz 4GB (2x2GB kit) $120)

Answer:RAM voltage

The Ram will be "throttled down" to run at 1333MHz and 1.5v on default settings.

From Synnex specs:"Each module kit has been tested to run at DDR3-2000MHz at a low latency timing of 9-11-9 at 1.65V. The SPDs are programmed to JEDEC standard latency DDR3-1333MHz timing of 9-9-9 at 1.5V. Each 240-pin DIMM uses gold contact fingers and requires +1.5V."
That also means the sticks have been tested at higher voltages and are, theoretically, good candidates for overclocking.

Question: Ram voltage

With the pc in my sig, what should the voltage be for my ram? Right now I am running at 2.0 volts according to HWMonitor. But according to cpu-z, it says I am at 1.8 volts and my timings are 6-6-6-18. According to Newegg, the timing should be 5-5-5-18. How high can I go with the voltage? I already increased it 0.3 volts to get it to 2.0 volts.

The reason I am asking is because I think this has something to do with the display driver error. Before I overclocked to 3.02ghz, I did not get the error that often but since I overclocked, a minute or two after I start playing Crysis I get the error every time. I am sure I am stable because I ran Prime95 all night and then some and no errors.

Answer:Ram voltage

what ocz ram is it?
my reaper 1066 is warrantied up to 2.4V
my sli-ready is to 2.3 i think.

both recommended 2.0-2.1V depending on the timings set for them. for example if i have the reaper set to 4-4-4-12 1066+ it requires 2.1V but if i run it 700-800mhz 4-4-4-12 it only needs 1.8V or so.

Question: voltage

i am curious, why is the battery 11 volts, and the ac adapter / charger 19 volts? i was a mechanic in my former life, so i understand that there needs to be extra power if the battery needs to be charged. but at almost twice the voltage, it seems a little on the excessive side. is it something to do with the lithium ion battery? i am not at all familiar with these.

Answer:voltage

well, on vehicles, a 12 volt charging system is regulated to 14.2 volts (+- .3 volts). but my computer, using an 11.8 volt battery, has a charger / a.c.c adapter, that put out a whopping 19.5 volts. obviously, i do not know all the ins and outs of how this works with a computer. if the charging system for the battery is separate from the a.c. running of the computer, or if they are indeed integrated like in a vehicle. 19.5 volts seems like a lot of voltage increase, for all of the electrical components to handle, from the 11.8 volts they are designed to run on. battery life is not part of my question. that should, unless i am missing something, simply depend on how much capacity the battery has, and the amount of draw on the battery. while i am not at all familiar with exactly how a lithium ion battery works, i do not think they are something magical, that could do something crazy like make its own voltage as it sits, or is being used. most batteries will recover slightly after a substantial draw, if allowed to sit for a period of time. that is simply a chemical process. my question is just about why so much voltage difference between the a.c. adapter, and direct battery voltage.

Now that I got the new memory in my computer and everything seems to be running fine, I'm getting the same message in the hardware monitor. Could this be what ruined my last RAM chip? If so, am I screwed with my new RAM? Is it a motherboard problem or a power supply problem? What is 2.5 voltage? When I check the voltage in the BIOS, its listed under different headings, and the voltage numbers are different, so I don't know what to make of it.

Question: Voltage !!!

I am clueless!

You all know I have major comp problems.
I think its not my HD.
I noticed after OC'ing my CPU it gets unstable and bluescreens. Got bluescreens n tcpip.sys and win32k.sys etc.

I think its my OC causing this.

Should I up my voltage?

Also, it seems to run better with external cache disabled.
Maybe the negative L2 value is related???? What's Difference between internal and external cache?

The other day it didn't boot with external enabled..

OMG

Answer:Voltage !!!

TheMajor,

I guess the internal cahe is the Level-1 cache and External is the level-2 cache. BTW, how much L2 cache does your processor have?

Question: Voltage

I found the answer but couldn't delete this post, so no need to reply here. Thank you! I am traveling abroad in Spain. They usually have 220V rather than 110V like in the US. Do I need to purchase some sort of converter or will an adapter be fine? I don't want to fry my laptop!

Answer:Voltage

@Klaesgi If you look at the AC adapter it should say 100-240V. If it does then all you will need is the wall plug. No new adapter needed. REO

Please let me know how to charge an Aspire Acer laptop that uses a 220 voltage power chord and battery in countries with a 110 voltage.

Answer:220 voltage to 110 voltage

just give a look at your AC charger, there is a label with some information, one will look like: Input Voltage 110-240V 50/60Hz if you find this kind of string, your AC charger works with every voltage from 110 to 240V

Question: CPU Voltage Help

I have my Celeron Processor overclocked (see signature), and my BIOS gives me the option to change the cpu frequency so I could overclock higher. The option right now is set on "normal", and I wanted to crank the fsb to 160 (now at 155) to make 3.2 ghz, although the system becomes unstable. The voltage options list (besides normal): .01, .02, and .03. What should I do (if anything) to the voltage? Also, I have an option for changing the dram frequency (changeble in speeds of mhz). I have looked onling to see what the dram is, and I have figured out it has something to do with the ram of the computer, although the website I was on only gave ratios; what does this option do?

Question: PSU Voltage

Hi Everyone

I have recently built a new PC for a friend made from the following:

Kandalf LCS Case (the one with built in liquid cooling)
Thermaltake 520W Power Station Modular PSU
XFX 768MB 8800GTX Graphics Card
2 GB (2 x 1GB) Corsair Dominator DDR2 6400
2 x SATA DVD-RW Drives
2 x SATA 320GB HDD's
1 x SATA 400GB HDD
ASUS P5N32-E SLi Motherboard
Intel E6600 DUal Core Processor

The problem is the machine kept shutting down. I looked in the bios and the 12v reads 0.0. I put a new PSU (Hiper 580W Modular) and the 12v worked for a few minutes and then returned to 0.0

I tested both PSU's in another PC and both worked fine (used Speedfan). Why would the new PC stop the PSU's working?

Any help much appreciated

Thanks

Question: PSU voltage

speedfan is telling me that the +5 volt line works at 6,85volt.if i measure the voltage on a molex with a voltmeter in the +5 volt position the result is +5,17.which one is wright ?do i need to replace the psu ?
 

Answer:PSU voltage

What are your other voltage readouts? I don't use speedfan so I can't comment on its accuracy but I do use a multimeter. If speedfan is correct then you definitely have a problem but if your multimeter is correct you are fine. Below or above 5% of the set voltage setting is when you need to become concerned

Test your other lines and do a comparison.

Interpreting your results
The general range of safe voltages is as follows (plus or minus 5%, according to the ATX standard)
+12v rail (11.40v - 12.60v)
+5v rail (4.75v - 5.25v)
+3.3v rail (3.13 - 3.47v)

Just because it's within that range does not mean it's doing its job.

Can you please tell me if my voltage is fine? or is it bad? i need to know because i don't... Read more

Answer:Not enough voltage? on +12v

Hi waynosss,
what is generally accepted for a PSU in the way of tolerance is +/- %5 (12.6v - 11.4v) so if your 12v reading is being reported correctly, your 11.19v is indeed low and out of the acceptable tolerances.
i would try another program to back this up(assuming you do not have the equipment to test yourself) to confirm. your 5v and 3.3v readings look good.

Question: USB key Voltage

Hi,

I have Apacer AudioSteno va210 256 mp3 player
http://www.apacer.com/apacer_english...teno_va210.asp

I would like to know what will happen if i'll connect power for it from nokia car charger. i think there is 4V voltage and about 350mA. That player uses 1x1.5V battery but i think that USB port outputs higher voltage so it shouldn't be damaged by 4V.

So i would like to know what is the possibility to damage my mp3 player? what will happen if i connect wires in bad polarity?
And i am wondering what highest voltage can these usb keys take? And what is the exact USB port voltage?

Answer:USB key Voltage

As far as what voltage the keys can take, I have no idea.

The worst that can happen if you plug in, is that you short out and destroy your MP3 player and maybe short some fuses in your car.
