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!

i was preparing for a gpu replacement, so i decided to flash my alienware m17xr3 A12 bios into an unlocked version.
I removed the gpu, put "PAR00X64.fd" in the root of a FAT32 usb.
i unplugged the power cord, inseted the usb drive in the esata port, and held the end button before replugging the cord.
the fans kicked in, and i heard 30 beeps, then it restarted.
after that, it wouldn't stop resatarting. it kept rebooting even when i held the end key for more than 20 mins.
i'm really confused right now as of what to do to fix this issue.
i would really apreciate any help you have to offer me.
I have recently a power shortage problem - the battery in my laptop ran out of juice and it suddenly shut down. This resulted in a broken SSD drive, which actually died a week later (not detected by any system or adapter). The laptop also had another SSD msata drive installed which was ok and I could see the data on it when booting into linux from pendrive. I then got a new drive and went for a completely new system in RAID 1 config for backup - changed legacy to UEFI mode in BIOS, removed the mSATA before in case I got something wrong and the data was erased. After installing Windows to the RAID volume I plugged the mSATA SSD into the mobo again and it is no longer visible for both BIOS and Windows. What could have gone wrong? I assume these possibilities: the motherboard went wrong or the drive got broken - question is "HOW"?
I resorted to google straightaway and I've found several tips:
- update the BIOS (did that, and nothing changed)
- change RAID/AHCI/ATA modes (still nothing)
- reset the RAID, install new OS and drivers (still not showing the drive)
- complete a "power cycle" for SSDs, found on Crucial's forums (is that even a thing?)
I need to recover the data from this mSATA drive - how do I do that?
The system I'm using:
Dell M6700 with i7 3940XM
16GBs of RAM
2x ADATA SSD in a RAID array
1x Samsung PM851a mSATA - the one I am trying to revive
What is up. Emailed Sager about latest bios and they sent me one. Suppose to provide support for Kabby lake 7XXX series processors as well as optimization for crappy WIFI cards that aka (cough cough KILLER) le'ts not point fingers here XD. File is below. Gotta flash through USB... there are plenty tutorials out there how to do but here are instruction from the email I got.
Rename the attached file to 9870BV08LS2.7z(Done it for you already)
Unzip the 9870BV08LS2.7z to a USB flash drive.
When the screen turns black, keep tapping F7.
Select enter setup on the boot menu.
Pull down the exit menu in the CMOS setup.
Launch EFI shell from filesystem device.
The Startup.nsh will flash the BIOS.
Note. Sager Computer does not take the responsibility if the computer does not work after you updated the system BIOS & firmware by
yourself. ( Neither do I)
