    Whats your latest purchase?

    I went to a Mom & Pop computer store that I've walked by hundreds of times, went in looking for old NIB parts, maybe something good for Win98 retro build I'm working on? And there I see it, an X79 board on the shelf, the only mobo on display on the spartan shelves. "Well, how much is that X79...

    The Saga Of The Lenovo M93P Tiny for 4K and light gaming

    I imagine you didn't expect to see one get an i7 4750HQ stuffed into it. :P I admit that how much I've sunk in, I probs coulda gotten a newer chip with full hardware HEVC built in, but making 'The Most Powerful M93P Tiny In The World' has some novelty as a project. :P

    The Saga Of The Lenovo M93P Tiny for 4K and light gaming

    The M93P I got has wifi on a mPCIE slot, but there's a big problem there: Lenovo uses a whitelist on that slot for only Lenovo authorized wifi NICs. It'll refuse to POST unless you bypass it. Had thatn when I dropped in an Intel AC adapter I had spare, so to upgrade it's Wifi I'll have to get...

    The Saga Of The Lenovo M93P Tiny for 4K and light gaming

    I used Intel XTU with a saved profile, then a PowerShell script that is scheduled to run on boot to ensure the profile is applied every time. And I had to use an older version of XTU that'll take the commandline instructions that way. Getting the undervolt to start with, easy, ensuring it...

    The Saga Of The Lenovo M93P Tiny for 4K and light gaming

    So undervolting had some real improvements, the biggest issue is that with a TDP of 47w and a relatively powerful GPU by Intel standards, you see some real challenges in gaming benchmarks. It's one thing to hit max turbo on a CPU only benchmark, while the GPU is between 0w-1w, start running 3D...

    The Saga Of The Lenovo M93P Tiny for 4K and light gaming

    This weekend I'll be doing some serious undervolting to see what more I can get out of the 4750HQ in this limited platform. Between what I assume a system with a hard current draw limit in the firmware and a cooling solution only built around 35w, this will be more about making it do more work...

    The Saga Of The Lenovo M93P Tiny for 4K and light gaming

    Thanks, it's pretty interesting to play around with a CPU like this. When I first saw LTT's video on it almost a year ago my thoughts were 'That is stupid and expensive, a normal 1150 CPU would be cheaper and 'just work'. But this Lenovo is a rare case where it makes sense, since I'm rather...

    The Saga Of The Lenovo M93P Tiny for 4K and light gaming

    Guess what arrived from China today. :) The good news is, it basically dropped in and 'just worked'. The downside is, I think the Lenovo BIOS has some wattage limits baked in that I can't alter. In most loads it runs at 47w, but it won't do it's 58w 'Short Turbo' speed, it's also running...

    The Saga Of The Lenovo M93P Tiny for 4K and light gaming

    The first upgrade is fast to arrive and an easy one since Amazon moves a lot faster than Chinese eWaste sellers. The Kingston A400 480GB drive is here and plugged in, ensuring that while the system is resource constrained, it won't have issues with storage access. Maybe overkill but it it was...

    The Saga Of The Lenovo M93P Tiny for 4K and light gaming

    Edit: Oops, I accidentally hid half my OP by messing up a Media tag. :D Yeah, I know their support can be iffy, apparently all Gigabyte boards refuse to run them even, if I hadn't seen someone on a forum say they got an i7 4720HQ working in an M93P Tiny specifically I dunno if I'd have risked...

    The Saga Of The Lenovo M93P Tiny for 4K and light gaming

    First, short story on how I came across this. A relative purchased both this and an M92P Tiny from @The Great Gazoo and had them shipped to me with the intention of splitting the order. ...Then changed their mind once they got here. So I paid for both and traded the M92P for a 1500va UPS with...

    Undervolting and TDP Restricting with the Q87 chipset

    That's interesting and I'll have to look at it later. But seems I'll need a better power supply first. I dropped in an i5 4590 (84w) just to 'see what would happen' and the 65w PSU is a limitation. It's apparently aware of it's PSU's limitations and is throtteling the CPU at 40w TDP. The...

    Undervolting and TDP Restricting with the Q87 chipset

    I realize OVERclocking and OVERvolting are usually the topic around here but I have an interesting situation here. I have a Lenovo M93P Tiny I'm looking to upgrade, it's a MiniPC, Socket 1150, Q87 chipset, and it only ships with 35w TDP CPUs. I have read online about people swapping in 45w TDP...
