    SP3 Duct 2.0 (Stops thermal throttling!)

    It won't be as hot as before but yes it still gets hot. Also, I'll try to see if I can find some other places to order the fan..

    SP3 Duct 2.0 (Stops thermal throttling!)

    That should work fine. I just don't trust myself to strip those tiny fan wires. Show us some pics when you're done!

    N-Trig jitter is driving me nuts!

    It seems to me that the orientation of the antenna in the pen makes more of a difference than how close the pen is to the screen. Perhaps try adding some wire to the antenna and see what happens.

    N-Trig jitter is driving me nuts!

    I've noticed that the closer to perpendicular to the screen the pen is, the less jitter is registered.

    Trying Surface Book - returned sp4 m3 and sp4 i5

    Having the base charge the clipboard would be perfect in your situation but alas it doesn't...

    Charge clipboard with base battery

    Because it costs more ($70+), it's another thing to carry (size, weight and more cords) and the base is capable of doing this.

    Charge clipboard with base battery

    I figured this was the case, but it would still be great if they gave us the option to enable it understanding the impact on battery life. :(

    Charge clipboard with base battery

    The clipboard has a pretty short battery life to begin with so when it dies or is almost dead you are stuck using it with the base or with the charge cord attached. It would be great to use it and have the base charge it as the comp sleeps or i flip a toggle to start the base charging it. I...

    Occasional times where DGPU turns off during programs.

    I'd look in the event history to see if it's a driver crash or potentially a hardware problem.

    Good to hear! Got some pics for us?

    SP3 Duct 2.0 (Stops thermal throttling!)

    This duct won't work on the SP4 because they are different thicknesses unfortunately (or fortunately). Not sure on the fan from amazon but any additional airflow will help. Make sure the red wire coming from your USB cable lines up with the red from the fan and same with the black wires...

    Looking to buy Surface Pro 3 256gb i5

    I'm looking to sell me i7 256 but I'm in the US and shipping to Denmark will run around $70US. It's in great condition (it has a decal girl vinyl cover on it) and has the red type cover. It works and runs perfectly. The only reason I'm selling is because my parents offered to buy me a Surface...

    Looking to buy Surface Pro 3 256gb i5

    Are you looking for an i5 or i7? The title and your post conflict.

    SP3 Duct 2.0 (Stops thermal throttling!)

    Unfortunately the connector from the fan is smaller than the ones you linked. But doing what Markbc01 did is always an option. I wish the fan had a bigger connector but i couldn't find a fan that size with a larger connector. This is great! Thanks for posting pics and as long as it works...

    No more throttling for Surface Pro 3 :)

    This is what I've found as well. The lim-fac on the SP3 is not the CPU temp but the external case temp. You can see in his graph that it still throttles (the jump in power limit throttling) due to the case external temp. Another tell tale is the drop in TDP. Also, what is the time scale on...

    SP3 Duct 2.0 (Stops thermal throttling!)

    1. Thanks for letting me know. I updated the OP with new links. The first amazon (a little more pricey but has prime) and the second I haven't bought from them but they are much cheaper than amazon and they say "free shipping". They are based out of China, so not sure if it'll really be free...

    Custom Fan - Get More From Your SP3!

    So I apologize for the lack of response but I really only check in here every couple weeks and life has been kind of crazy for me lately. To answer a couple questions/concerns about the models, the main reason I haven't shared them is for quality control. I know that the ducts coming from...

    SP3 Duct 2.0 (Stops thermal throttling!)

    Thanks for the feedback Markbc01! Glad it is working so well for you! If you watch with XTU you can see if/why the CPU is throttling, whether it be from thermal, power or external reasons. Let me/us know if you have any other questions/comments.

    Understanding DPTF ... Smarter Throttling

    This is good news! I'm assuming this would be at the firmware level for the SP3?
