M18X Cosmetic Modifications Please Post Here

Recommended Posts

Usually i mod my Alienware's to make them unique but in the case of the M18X is not much i can do because i love the Gunmetal" color so the only thing i tough would be good and protect the machine was this carbon fiber vinyl over the palmrest

I didn't realize how good it feels and look until i install it makes the palmrest a lot better than the stock because is not sticky and there is no more fingerprints all over the place also protect the finish what i think is really important for a lot of people :D

Nice job speedy. Will removing it cause any damage to the rubber underneath? What about leftover adhesive?

I don't think so if you use a hair dryer and slowly remove the film if some leftover adhesive is left you can use rubbing alcohol

PD: in the worst case you can call DELL and tell them your touch pad stop working :44_002:

Wow @enantiopure, this one really looks great. I like your work with the cover. Cheers!

Great textured black. I'd love to do that if I could. I am too far way.

To explain the reason why 4.6 or more is not stable for you CPU is because, however high you add voltage on BIOS or XTU the maximum voltage m18x R2 MOBO can handle is 1.501v.

Within that voltage, if your CPU can be stable you can OC. If not stable you cannot OC.

My OEM CPU is stable till 4.7. I can do anything at 4.7. At 4.8 I can pass XTU bench test, but not cinenbench R11.5 or R15.

So it's all about how high your CPU can get with 1.501v.
