    Hi,

    After seeing Chris’es video about heat sink mod, I starting wondering if we could use those empty connectors on motherboard?

    There appear to be three of them not used at all. And since almost 1/3 of tablets’ volume is not used (thought it is very slim in that area), I think it could be great to use them somehow 🙂

    Any ideas on using that?

    Hey Chris, nice to hear from you. Would it be possible that you post high quality photos of these ports? I would post those on reddit, or some technical board, but I dont have the device 🙂

    Hi guys,

    I bought this laptop yesterday at Gearbest but if I get to see this forum and Chris’ videos first, I do not.

    Anyway, @Dominik I can share with you the pictures what you asking for in a few days, because I’ll try Chris’ solutions for the laptop’s troubles.

    Regards

    There was mention of a heatsink mod for the Jumper.

    The second batch ones (with toshiba emmc) do not have the ‘extra’ ports soldered on the motherboard. 🙁
