I have one
same spec but have only 8gb of ram ☺

nice! Same CPU also? How hot does yours get? Mine runs at 102c at 48-53w on 2 of the cores at full load, other 2 are in the low-mid 90’s, might need to repaste it…

yes sir same cpu but my display only 1600x900 and 2 ram slot with 4gbx4gb and 2 slot still havn't ram 😢
my cpu full load not over 92-93c

Solid Workstation! Used to have one for coding. Easily one of the best machines I ever had.

its a superb machine. I also have one with the 3940XM, 32GB, 1080p display and 3 SSDs (two 2.5 ones and one msata). But i don't have the docking station (what extra does it provide btw?). I see temperatures rise to ~74celsius as the most (i use Kryonaut paste).

W530 still performs today

24gb ram? How did you configure it? 3x8GB sticks? Or 16+8GB stick?

2x8gb and 2x4gb 1600mhz sticks

3940XM, how do you keep it cool, does it throttle?

currently trying to figure out how to keep it cool, runs hotter than expected from what others have told me so I need to repaste it. (And yes it throttles, but I hope it doesn’t once I have this cooling thing fixed)

even when throttling it is still more powerful than stock CPU, keep up the good work 🙂

definitely repaste, but you might also be better off without the dock, since it's partially blocking the exhaust vents.

i guess undervolting and undercloking it a tiny bit >:)

Oh I forgot to mention the previous owner of this machine had already IvyRain’ed it surprisingly, can’t seem to overclock the CPU though. (Can change the power limits but they don’t seem to do anything)

Main and interesting component: mechanical dock 😉
