Hi all,

I've just acquired a CF-31 Mk5.
i5-5300U CPU, 8GB RAM (as a single module), 500GB Drive, [resistive]touchscreen,

According to the model number breakdown etc. it originally had a backlit keyboard and GOBI5000 card but not as I got it.

I have a Toughbook GOBI3000 I picked up a few years ago and which was supposed to be for a CF-31, but they are now using a different form factor, M2 style rather than mini PCI.. doh..

The machine is generally very clean and works well, but has signs of fine sand or mud in some places, like the drive bay door, outside the seals.

I'm looking for a service manual for this to find out exactly what's what and where inside it, rather than start taking it apart for the sake of it..
I'm particularly curious about the airflow path and what coudl get clogged in that, as that's something new to me with toughbooks - my CF-30, CF-19 & others did not have fans.

Any info appreciated!

Yes, MK5 CF-31's are the newest to date and the GOBI 5000 is the EM7355 - smaller chip, not the MC7355 larger chip!

Enjoy! :)
