Hi
I am working on PC, in order to run emulators and old PC games. I'm posting in the PS2 section, as this is the initial focus.

Specifications:
• Eyoyo em09t 8.9 Touch
• Resolution: 1080p

Motherboard:
• Lenovo Ideapad S145
• i7 CPU - 8565U
• RAM: 4GB + 16GB XPG
• GeForce MX 110 & Intel UHD Graphics 620

Battery: 1x Lenovo 4700mha (I am studying a means of two)
1 x Pair of Chinese Joycons emulating an X360 controller.


I'm looking for heat sinks with a low profile, but I believe I should customize something.
In relation to the case, I am modeling something similar to AYA, however at a very early stage, so suggestions are welcome.

This guy!!! I fully endorse the emulation approach, and I find it EXTREMELY clever to use an existing small form factor device with a very powerful chip on it. Super good!!!

And yes you will very likely need to design something for the heatsink. I've been trying to find a fabricator for such a piece. Are you going to go with a passive heatsink, or are you going to add a fan?

the idea is to use something close to the original lenovo s145. I have an L340 here with a GT1050 and the cooler is low and the heatsinks are very small, so I think something similar will suit here. Unfortunately my card is relatively large so I don't believe that this laptop will be less than 3cm in height.

I know there are better ssf solutions like udoo and DFI cards with Ryzen, but the price in my view is prohibitive

I too, like this idea. I considered repurposing an old laptop mainboard for mine but struggled with finding the information I'd need to be able to adapt a smaller screen to it (without having to use an external screen driver through HDMI). Keen to see how you end up doing it!

it is the principle I intend to use via hdmi by flat cable, because the screen has a solid wiring and I am afraid to remove the screen that is glued.

Ah fair enough. I just didn't want the added bulk of the HDMI driver when the laptop mainboard is perfectly capable of driving an LCD panel on its own. I look forward to seeing your progress, keep up the good work!

I ended up learning a lot about the rtd2660 chips (PCB800099 and its derivatives) that can operate lvds and TTL screens, support for ypbpr etc. If your LCD is one of those, we could see a way.

I assembled it, but the pieces had an unpleasant surprise. The memory slot is damaged, so I'm limited to 4gb of eam for now. Another point is the temperature that is still cool. I will pass copper plates in order to improve these cooling systems before developing the case.

Hello guys, change the card due to the problem with the memory. I bought a ddd4 connector from china, when I get it, I will buy another one, because 4Gb in my opinion is not enough for a Windows PC.

I took a card from the Acer A515-51g-c690 which is slightly smaller and better in both specifications and battery than Lenovo's.

- Part number: C5V01 LA-E892P
- Processor: CORE Core i7-8550U 1.8GHz
- Nvidia GeForce MX130 2GB VRAM
- Ram OnBoard 4GB

Hello guys, I managed to fix the memory slot on the Lenovo s145. So I'm going to go with Lenovo.

In the previous tests I identified several temperature bottlenecks, to be exact the clock of the mx110 was cut at 400mhz in 65c. Then I remade the heatsink using Dell Latitude 120L. I will use 2, one on the gpu and the other on the cpu. Here I saw another question, as the temperature sensor is on the CPU and apparently there is no line for the gpu fan, I will use a stm32 that i have here to manage the fans and volume controls.
