    Need help overclocking my M18X please!

    As i can see it your multipliers are 34,34,35,36 so set your cpu voltage to 1.15V and change your processor current (both current settings) to 95A leave your multipliers at their maximum. That should give you 4 cores at 3400Mhz,3 cores at 3400Mhz,2 cores at 3500Mhz,1 at 3600Mhz. Seems thats as...

    Alienware 18 drivers question

    Yeah windows 8 is a bit ordinary in many ways,was there a reason why you didnt order it with windows 7? If you go to your local Dell website you can download all the drivers there.

    INTEL I7-4930mx

    You can overclock any cpu in the Alienware 18 with XTU,i have overclocked my 4900MQ upto 4.2Ghz on all 4 cores. Trouble is the Vcore required to run at 4.2Ghz combined the Vring for the uncore to run at the same speed generates a hell of a lot of heat. To give you an idea i did an XTU benchmark...

    INTEL I7-4930mx

    Probably little point in buying the 4930mx as overclocking it beyond what XTU will do with a 4900mq 4.2Ghz or even what you already have will only generate an insane amount of heat,i cant run mine at 4.2Ghz on a warm day just gets way to hot.Being a laptop you just cant really effectively cool...

    Need help overclocking my M18X please!

    Firstly do you have a current Alienware 18? If so what cpu do you have? Cpu information will be on the bottom plate of your laptop along with manufacturing date.M18x implies you have an earlier model than the current 18?

    Need help overclocking my M18X please!

    You dont need an unlocked bios you can use a intel utilty called XTU. Overclocking is relatively simple you just need to change your multiplier and your Vcore or core voltage. A word of warning though DO NOT APPLY TO MUCH VOLTAGE TO YOUR CPU i cant stress this enough. What model cpu do you have...

    New bios finally released !!!!!!! A04

    On my Alienware 18 the cpu fan takes forever to really do anything. At about 90 degrees you finally can hear the cpu fan work but it should be running at a higher rpm well before i hit 90 degrees,this is a result of the fan tables in bios A03 not being correct. From what i have been reading so...
