Dead links, and some important information query

I know that I may have mistakenly gotten rid of some actually useful information, which was a bad move on my part. I understand, and I am sincerely sorry for that. But first, could you explain why is the thermal design power rating of a northbridge useful?

The processors are definitely going to need some thermal design power ratings listed, but for a northbridge? There must be a reason, and I would like to know and understand why.

You added back the documentation link for most of the northbridges that I have edited, but it links to the entire set of devices that the northbridge is supposed to be paired with. Was the documentation link supposed to be a link to the northbridge's datasheet, or was it supposed to cover everything the northbridge was supposed to be paired with?

Also, the R50's link that points to its driver resource, is dead. At least, on my end. And I could compensate for my 'butchering' by adding a driver link for every ThinkPad's page I edit, if you wish.

I had also noticed that you shifted the docking solutions to the Miscellaneous subcategory, which in my opinion, looks out of place. I could just create a another subcategory dedicated for the docks, and maybe that would look better. Your thoughts?

Now, I believe I should tell you my reasons for editing and removing some of that information that you deem important. Most of it has some irrelevant pointers, such as the northbridges' documentation that points to everything that it is supposed to be paired with. What I thought was the northbridge itself, which is why I replaced them with the datasheet. I assume that we have a disagreement here, right?

And for additional compensation for my continued 'butchering' for the past 3 or 5 days, I will try to list as much information as I can get for the southbridges and the northbridges. Such as some rather strange specifications, the AGP bus speed, and the companion southbridge it is paired with. Maybe the thermal design power rating too, but I doubt that helps anyone with anything software-related.

There is a lot of things that needs to be done on my part, and I would definitely like to come with an agreement with you on everything I edit.

Thanks.
