MSI GTX 1060 MXM successfully working on Alienware M18X R2 (another socket victory against BGA crap)By aaronloveweed
Hi All! First thread poste here!
Very happy with my beast ..again!
m18x R2 on modded bios (SG mode needed, optimus mode igfx+dGpu)
So my msi 1060 from alezka.com (Woodzstack thank you) was arrived yesterday, fast, very well packaged , and with a bit of icdiamond7.
Removed (not very well..buyed and used a dremel for first time) the tiny metal square on heatsink , that touch ram on 1060.
put thermal pads everywhere to match heatsink space.
Absolutely do not tight or strengt too much the gpu because has on his backside a big squared capacitator that push on motherboard
Here 3dmark11 to start benching
msi1060 (stock clocks) + 3920xm(4.2Ghz) on m18xR2 .
Max GPU temp 71° (at 24° t.amb).
And Here 3dMark
Max GPU temp 71° (at 24° t.amb).
GPU max temp 72°
Now I'm start to look if performance is aligned with other 1060's powered laptops.
All suggestion are very welcome!
Have Clevo P170SM and working music and video production. Processor: Intel core i7 4800mq 2.7GHz with turbo boost up to 3.7GHz x8 (47W), Graphic: Radeon R9 M290X 256BIT 4GB DDR5 (100W) + Intel HD 4600, Memory : 24GB DDR3 1600MHz, SSD 3x Samsung Evo 1tb, and interested for upgrades, so if somebody have experience with GPU NVidia GTX 1070M 8GB (150W): https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/gtx-10-series-mobile-reveal/ and CPU AMD Ryzen 7 1700 (65W) : http://www.trustedreviews.com/amd-ryzen-7-1700-review. Of course I will have to change memory with DDR4-2400, but question is, will the 230 watt power adapter be enough and should I expect some more problems (except money) to do that. Thank's in advance.
Hi @ all, i whant to use an EXP graphic adapter with an GTX 1050Ti with ExpressCard on my M18X R1.
I startet with the Adapter and i can install the NVIDIA driver. The GTX was normal detectet. But i have 2 exclamation mark one by the Card and the second by the PCIe adapter (after installing the driver).
I have a GTX 780m with modded driver so i cant switch to onboard graphic (with my older 6990m i can do this).
Error Code 29 (GTX) and Error Code 43 (PCIe).
I want to use the GTX with the Alienware Monitor but i also testet it on an extern Monitor.
So have anybody an idea what i can do?
I'm using the Beast Version 8.4d!
