T530 in E530

2020-12-29, 9:29 AM

Hi everyone

I ve been trying to build  a T530 out of basically dead pcs and i came across multiple good offers on semi-broken  E530s and terrible offers on  broken T530s price wise (this is in Eu).

Therefore I have multiple questions for you experts out there:

1: Will a T530 motherboard fit in an E530 (as far as I know the E530 is just a worse quality T530 with a worse motherboard)

2: if i reset the bios (with ) will i be able to get, with the right screen, FHD(1080p)

-I am doing this only because an Italian has a (he claims) T520 FHD screen that, as far as my understanding goes, I should be able to fit in a T530, that i can make with an E530 body/case and a T530 motherboard

If anyone has better suggestions to get a cheap T530 for dirt cheap (ex. Taking a L530 and swapping motherboard ecc...) I am totally open.


Thanks everyone !



P.S. : i don' t care about the rest of the hardware because I an going to swap it (cpu, ram, ssd and hdd).
