Alienware M18x-R1 3DMark 11 World Record (Single GPU)

Recommended Posts

Well we've done it, the M18x-R1 just crossed the 9k GPU barrier with a SINGLE video card! Major props to @svl7 for his vbios, to nVidia for building Kepler (what an amazing GPU) and to Alienware for designing some awesome cooling, without any of the aforementioned this wouldn't be possible.

One in the same bro. Yeah guess you were lurking, you need to toss some benchmarks here too.

ok, it all makes sense now.

yeah i had talked to marc about that long ago...i think i quit doing that after the killerinstinct notebook thread nonsesne. where benching turned hostile. :D

Which KI notebook thread? Was it here or NBR? I noticed a few of yours in the GPU benchmarking section (where you upload your SS). Anyway, grab some dell 680m's and give svl7 some feedback, the other guys aren't doing the job.

back when killerinstinct notebooks had it's own forums. nothing here or on nbr....

that's right, i did start, but it seemed like there was no real benching interest so i think that's why i stopped.... but on a side note. way to put the smack down for alienware. :D (had to throw that in even though it's a clevo card)

as for the other guys...not really sure why the no good feed back...this should be the soul mission...cracking the the limits of the card.....

Thanks, I wanted to see AW back on top ;) Hopefully @svl7 can sort out the Dell cards so those start performing like this Clevo one. I'll probably sell this and grab a Dell one once he's able to do it.

yeah that definitely beats 7970 and by a lot. now all you need is another card for some SLI runs:chuncky:

Vantage world record for a single mobile GPU as well:

Is that Oced stable for gaming?

It's not recommended for gaming because it would wear down the card pretty fast, puts too much pressure on the voltage circuitry. I use 902/1100 daily.

Thanks and triple pipe CPU sink coming:

Quantity Item Number Description
1 0MXJ5 Assembly,Heatsink,Central Processor Unit,QC XE,M18XR2





Should help those high CPU temps I get at 4 GHz.

holycow , is what im seeing is true ?

9k with a mobile gpu , unbelievable .

+1 rep for SVL7 and Brian for nice thread.

EDIT: your GTX 680m passed my HD 6990 in vantage .

I doubt it will scale linearly

      I've read a lot of conflicting posts about thermal pads for the CPU and GPU on the Alienware m15x. There are a lot of pictures out there detailing all of the different sized thermal pads that you need. In my experience, 1.5mm pads are perfect for everything on the Dell 980m and the 920xm. I was using 0.5mm pads at the time that I replaced both, so having the exact sizes was important. I think that I might have actually fried my 5850m in part due to not having thick enough thermal pads. I discovered that they had had not been making contact with the heatsink at all.
      I tried following the guide on techinferno and noticed that my gpu was actually bending (a lot) and certain areas weren't even making contact at all. I tried different layering of thermal pads through trial and error, looking for imprints of vrms and such. 1.5mm on everything worked the best.
      Some people are putting thermal pads on things that the manufacturers don't even put them on. I can't say what thicknesses are needed for these, but it will be more than 1.5mm.
      Anyway, I hope that this helps someone. I was using Arctic brand 0.5 thermal pads and stacking them in my testing. I have 1.5mm pads on the way now.

      I'm going to be upgrading my Alienware M18x R1 with a GTX770m I purchased from ebay; 770m has a Dell P/N: HW6C9 for reference. I have a couple questions about performing this upgrade:

      -Is the /unlocked/ version A05 bios necessary? I am receiving 8 beeps on startup with the dell factory A05 bios installed w/ the 770m
      -Is a vBIOS flash required for basic functionality and driver installs? 
      -If so, is there a link to a compatible vBIOS for this card, finally, a guide for installing the new vbios?

      Any help is vastly appreciated, I've done some homework but I am new to upgrading MXM modules on laptops.

      Hey guys whats going on? I have an M17X R3, been running the 780M perfectly fine for about 7 months now. I've updated the driver once before, but it seems I'm having problems with all of the latest releases. Whats happening is when I download the latest driver, I run the setup so the 398.36 folder gets saved on my computer. Well thats what is NOT happening. Every time I run it, I see the folder pop up, but once the Nvidia downloader fails (as it should), the 398.36 folder disappears! I cant figure out how to make it stay there permanent! I've disabled driver signing and everything. Any suggestions?

      Hey guys, first post, but I thought I’d discuss my heatsink fan retrofit in my old M14x r1. 
       
      Old fan was loud and not very efficient: the air transfer rate was around 2 cfm (I’m assuming cubic feet per minute). Finally had enough and decided to swap out the crappy r1 fan/coughing pinwheel for a r2 fan (rated at 10.4cfm). 
       
      I found an old r2 heat sink on eBay (beware though that the heat sink for the r2 will NOT fit the gpu/cpu configuration for the r1. HOWEVER, the fan of the r2 heat sink it is attached to is a carbon copy fit into the r1 MoBo. A few philips head screws and a seal of good electric tape and BAM, you’ve got a significantly cooler and MUCH quieter intake fan in your old R1. 
       
      My CPU temps from before were around 87-88 max load in FSX, 65 for the GPU; bear in mind this is after a repaste. Now with the new fan, I’m not going over 77 degrees on the CPU, and the gpu stays around 58, all while being MUCH quiter. I’ll post pics of the walkthrough if anyone is interested.
       
       Just thought I’d share with all you fellow loonies trying to squeeze every last frame and degree out of our “portable toaster ovens with a screen and keyboard”.

      So I bought an older model M17xR3 with 6990 AMD GPU in it. When I turn on the PC the Screen blinks, image get crooked until I boot into the system. Also it won't load the video on YouTube. I can view the pictures on google just fine and load pages as well. Can anyone help me out ? Is it bad GPU or what should I do ?
