Hi everybody, I just did a bga reflow work on a HP dv6000 and I think everthing is working fine but I just want to make sure that the temperatures are right, so.. I'm using a program to see the temps and I have: the cpu is working around 49 C when fan is on and then gets to 59 C when fan is off, and the video get 58 C when fan is on and when is off gets 68 C.

Can anyone let me know if the temps sound good to you ? thanks for the support.

------

updated BIOS and now is 9 or 10 degrees less. ;)

cpu: 38 C
video: 50 C

anyways, somebody let me know what you think about this. thanks.

Your temps are not bad.
When you did the reflow, did you replace that strange foam stuff between the heatsink and gpu with a copper shim? The bios upgrade runs the fan constant which in turn will shorten your battery time between charges, it was HP's lame attempt of a fix for their blunder of overheating their gpu's because of the design flaw

Everything Joe C said above. The bios flash makes your fan run all the time to get your chipset through the full warranty period. Shortens battery life a bit though.

Apple, Dell and other OEMS did the same thing.

when I did the reflow I took the heat sink out and I cleaned good a lil bit around, I took out all the old thermal compound. Also, I did put the copper shim in the video chip with artic silver thermal compound. so now.. do you think is better to use the old BIOS settings ? or just stay with the new one. something else I dont have is the plastic zif to attach the mouse to the motherboard, I look all on ebay but I can't find it. I dont want to buy a motherboard just to take one zif :thumbsup: thanks for the reply guys.

I have a DV2000 that I fixed with the reflow trick too, When I updated something from HP (I knew I should've looked first but I did not) HP did a bios flash as an update, now my battery life is about half of what it was and I did not see a another bios to flash it back
