    yeah my buddy is looking to upgrade his gpu he has dual 5670's and is looking to make a jump but doesn't have a lot of cash maybe a GTX 750 is a good move.

    High GPU Temps in X51 r2

    I still say that's to high for me to close to the danger zone. With my 680 SC over clocked even farther i hover around 75 maybe getting close to 80 with games like BF4 but not going over 80. My mad is 97c ive seen cards burn up so for me i'm paranoid for this to happen to me since cards are not...

    680m sli + full liquid cooling in a x51

    the 680mx beats the 780m, but the 780m beats the 680m there is two different cards. If you can get the 680mx to work on a adapter board i would try it to just for shits and giggles ;) where can you get those adapter boards?

    High GPU Temps in X51 r2

    yeah precision-x works good for the GPU fan, the only reason i use SpeedFan is because it controls all the fans in the case. But i use Precision-X for my OC

    High GPU Temps in X51 r2

    No that's bad! You don't want it anywhere near 90C. You need to download a program called SpeedFan 4.49. This will allow you too adjust all the fans speed in your computer including GPU fan to accommodate to the temp. rising in the case. Here is the site you need just fallow the steps. This will...

    X51 Poll - Who is getting one?

    congrats they are great machines for the size not much out that can beat them honestly for the size and looks. If you are looking to upgrade the gpu i'd prob go with the 670 FTW edition i think it offer's one of the biggest bang for the bucks with the least amount of trouble. When i got mine it...

    Previous Alienware owner, now back with a X51 R2!

    I was also debating on the 780 ti as well but if i did go for that i would def. get the classified version. I see total mixed reviews on frames per second for these cards for example: GTX 690: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/battlefield-4-graphics-card-performance,3634-8.html Note that...

    Previous Alienware owner, now back with a X51 R2!

    I have to be honest i'll prob never get another Alienware again. Not that i'm not happy with the performance i have squeezed from this little beast. But i'm just unhappy with the way conducts there business. The thing is there is so many options when it comes to PC's and the fact we can build...

    UK PC Noob considering X51

    i've played with the settings a bit and now i'm able to have everything on ultra i turn off MSAA in game and turn it on to 4x forced by my gtc 680 and then i'm able to turn the scaling to 200% and still get 55-60fps. Oh and i turned post process to low. Game looks great. My resolution is at...

    X51 custom build!?

    Yeah the biggest limitation on these is the PSU only being 330w but still you can setup a pretty decent machine.

    UK PC Noob considering X51

    Honestly both those setups are going to struggle with BF4. The 270x can play battlefield with High settings and get a decent frame rate but i don't think it will play ultra settings all that well. I play BF4 and i bought the cheaper model and just upgraded the card. I play BF4 at 55-60fps on...

    Previous Alienware owner, now back with a X51 R2!

    Yeah i haven't had much luck talking with Dell either about any issues i've tried to work out in the past either. IMO there customer service doesn't seem to knowledgeable. Maybe when you get your's since it's taking a bit longer the bugs will be all worked out ;) If there was any.

    X51 custom build!?

    IDK where you would get a barebones version of this prob ebay would be the only place to find something like this for you. As for th GTX 680 i love it. But you might have a hard time if you have the i7 4770 in there with the 680, to much power draw between the two together. I've ordered a i7...

    X51 custom build!?

    I have seen some ppl use a aftermarket board however they back of the x51 doesn't have a place for the backplate so they have to cut and make the MB fit. It would be a lot easier to just get a AW MB like a bare bones system or just do what i did and start with the base model x51 and build it up...

    Previous Alienware owner, now back with a X51 R2!

    yeah that is the best option i'm running it and i set up my buddy's pc the same way different settings of course since his doesn't run exactly like mine. He is now running his 270x without and issues.

    How does your X51 handle BF4

    My x51 does pretty good get between 55-60fps some times in big battles it will go as low as 48fps but for the most part stays above 55fps. My x51 seems to pretty much handle any game i though at it COD Ghost being the only game that runs like crap that i have.

    Previous Alienware owner, now back with a X51 R2!

    be careful with the 270x i think dell pushed them out without fully making them work right. I have a R1 that i've since upgraded with some parts my buddy liked mine so he got the 270x R2 and it didn't come with any drivers installed and he didn't know how so i took it home installed all that he...

    X51 R1 upgraded GPU to R9 270

    Yeah that is running to hot i say increase your front fan speed to push more cool air into the case. The tight fit of the cards and the HD are in the way of most of the air trying to get into the case. The best thing i can say is have that front fan based of your GPU temp so for example when my...

    X51 R1 upgraded GPU to R9 270

    That's what i used as a guide line its great at least shows you the basics what everything is for. I had to change some stuff due to my overclock but it was a good learning tool for the program.
