I don't have a link to the cable, the item I purchased on eBay was the entire upper panel assembly with LCD, camera, and cable attached. It may be easier to buy a broken laptop or one for parts and salvage the screen. FWIW, the 1600x900 matte panel has terrible contrast ratio. Here is one of the panels on eBay, but not the cable: 1600x900 HP 8470p HD+ LCD.
I paid $100 for my i7-3740qm in Dec 2016. I see they are around $80 now.
Hi @phunguss ,
You did the great job and thanks for sharing all the stuffs to us.
May I ask if the internal bluetooth card works well in terms of Airdrop... features? If not, which wifi card integrated with Bluetooth that you recommend for Mojave?
And have you faced the heating problem with i7 3740QM? Mine is getting up to 50-60 C in Idle mode . Even I've disabled the Turbo Boost in Windows OS to get it low down a bit with the temperature but it seems too high. So, do you have any solution for it?
And in Mojave, is there any way to disable the Turbo Boost and Undervolt the Ivy Bridge i7 3740QM?
I wish you a very nice day ahead !!!
