Hi all, just a quick note to share my experience with Need for Speed Most Wanted.
First I have to recognize that I’m not a big fan of gamming in general, but this one as an amazing interface felling, and as a result got addicted in the very first spin of the wheels.
All was going fine until 15 <-> 20 min of playing then the screen just froze, had to do a hard 10 seconds boot with the power button, for a few days this was the rule but then I realized that the processing power of the machine 2xCPU + 4xGPU was more than needed for the game, so what was the problem?, game bad coded?, system Jelly Bean 4.1?, turns out it was ”heat dissipation” as I suspected.
Even after my bricking episode I never had to open my tablet, but now I want to play, so I did open it with great difficulty because of the first two screws that are six edges nano scale “nearly”.
After opening noticed a black plastic that seems to have heat dissipation on top of the board, after removing this plastic I could see the board and chipset, with the tablet opened I went for a spin in NFS, after 15 <-> 20 min the frozen screen came up, the cpu chipset could fry eggs when I touched it.
I will tell you what I did but be aware that this is for your info only I’m not responsible for other people’s actions or bad judgment.
I glued 3 layers of aluminium heat dissipation on the top of the processor;
1 layer on top of the 2 GPUs;
and 1 layer on top of the 4 RAMs, result? I can now play NFS for 3 hours or more without freezing the screen, of course that the black plastic covering the board had to come out.
The glue used was from a pound store (brand?= Tool Box Super Glue, 20 grams, yellow sticker), and the cost was … yes 1 pound, the heat dissipation aluminium was 1 millimetre thick from an old machine I had (cpu eat dissipation).
If you’re going to do this don’t forget to glue your hands to the tablet, really don’t use your bare hands, in my case I used a small plier and a scissor or screw driver to fix the heat dissipation, obviously I did not apply the tube of the glue directly on the board, it was prepared beforehand with the plier and scissors to hold it together.
Amazing game after 3 hours of delight playing.
