    ThinkPad T61 Wiki
    Because of the popularity of this page and its value to the international ThinkPad community, Wikispaces was kind enough to donate hosting services.
    A huge thank you to TuuS316 for helping make this happen.

    undervoltingCPU UNDERVOLTING and THROTTLING
    The maximum CPU clock speed may be limited when the system is operated on the 65W AC adapter and no battery is installed. source
    By reducing voltage the CPU will run cooler and draw less power, usually providing an extra 10 to 30 minutes of battery life.
    CPU speeds can also be throttled to reduce temperatures and extend battery life.

    Wireless upgrade option
    From uruiamme:
    With 3 antenna ports and no bluetooth, it seemed to me that the best upgrade for my Intel 4965AGN PCIe Mini Card was to find a newer Intel card that will fit in the slot with similar specs. I looked around for a card with 3 antenna ports and no bluetooth. I couldn't find one with a full length card, so I bought an adapter off eBay. I got the Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 AGN card. It works fine in my T61 widescreen laptop and gets pretty good signal for me. I found out that there may have been a swapped cable on my old card, but in any case I followed the color scheme of the new card for the white/gray/black cables. My cables reached across after pulling some slack out of the area under the CPU fan. IT HAS TO HAVE a mini PCIe adapter (About $2 on eBay for two adapters with screws) My wireless speed is much improved. Note also that I am using the Middleton BIOS, which is needed to prevent the laptop from rejecting this upgrade. Hope that helps the Wiki!!
