Still, there's not as much room for airflow in such a tight case as th X series, and if we don't have adequate control over the fan, I would expect it to get hot and shut itself off.
I have a couple X60's and X61's in the field, and those seem to be doing okay in terms of fan noise & proper speed throttling (under XP; I've never even attempted eCS on one of those models!). I also have a relatively fresh build (XP) on an SL400, so we'll see if that has a similar fan experience to the R400's (although that model seems to have some other issues with it).
I, too have an X60. After the success with the T60, I grabbed an X60, because
that would really be a perfect laptop for me. But even though XP runs just
fine, eCS shuts the machine down after a few minutes. I didn't know why it
shuts down, but I bet it is a problem with heating.
I fixed it a different way, after seaching open tickets on eComStation.com. IHow about OS2APIC? Any luck with that and SMP?
switched to the W4 kernel. I lose one CPU, but the machine runs normally. (But
still have bad system sounds, like some T60 users on this list.)
I wonder if the T60 would run cooler with the W4 kernel. It's too bad to runI suppose if you ran only one core on the T60 it would run cooler. It makes sense, at least.
only one CPU, but I would be satisfied with good eCS stability with only one
CPU. I may go back to the X60 and try SMP with cpuspeed, because cpuspeed is
still working well on my T60.
