Ok so I'm patiently (that's a lie) waiting on my new M17x R4 being delivered (still in production) what I'm wondering is what software if any would you guys recommend as a "Must" to install on the beast? Obviously this will mainly be a personal preference for most but I'm curious..... System specs in my sig

K-lite codecs - decodes almost everything video and audio out there.
Anti-virus - whatever is your choice. i think you get Mcafee for free for 1.5yrs.
Razer Game Booster - shuts down all other non-required processes when you game.
JDownloader - recommened in this forum as a must have for web file downloading.
Rainmeter - desktop customiser.
VLC Player - Great for MKV formats and anything else that is proper bluray quality video.
absinthe - if you have a jailbroken iphone.
WinSCP - for FTP file management (if you are into that sort of thing)
Winamp - or something else equivalent for music management (i just hate itunes with a passion, and then you can install the Winamp fx : http://www.alienowners.com/showthread.php/412-Winamp-AlienFX-Plugin?highlight=winamp)

I am sure that there is a ton more, but it is late for me and im sleepy. Had a horrible valentines with the wife. Had a fight. Sleeping on the couch. AWO is my recovery corner.

Thanks. No problems. These are the main core of what I always have on my PC.
Other than the paid stuff like MSoffice ... etc etc

I like the sound of the Razer Game Booster. I may give that a go if you recommend it.

Yeh I recommend this. I also assume due to the lighter load as less processes are running, it should help a little with temps.
After the game closes, it restarts all the other processes.

Hi guys! Took delivery of the beast on Monday.
Just want to know if there is a specific program that allows me to turn on/off the turbo boost.
I used to use AISuite on my desktop PC, but thats an asus program.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

You can turn it on and off in the BIOS. Why do you want to switch it off?

Hey MattyB don't want to switch it off, i want to be able to choose at what speed the CPU is running.
Is there a program that allows me to do this?
