    [Tutorial] Dual 330W AC Adapter Mod

    The only thing good about the Dell systems is, it is very hard to do a power short. The hole thing, both the laptop and PSU will shutdown fast! When I was making the dual PSU mod I made some mistakes resulting in big sparks! But nothing was damaged, Even the alienwaren did not take damage. Clevo on the other hand. I had a p170em and a friend borrowed it to watch YouTube while I was working on something else. The battery came down to 10% and he panicked and ran for the charger. In his rush I managed to connect the PSU UP-AND-DOWN to my clevo, resulting in + and - to be switched around, killing the motherboard instantly! I was pretty pissed at him! But also for clevo not making it idiot proof.

    No it will still ask for 330w PSU.

    [unlocked] M18x R1 BIOS versions

    You will get an extra option inside bios. Here you can choose between Auto, iGFX, PEG and PCI. Do not select PCI, it will cause 8 beep error and you will need to reset bios.
  4. Just ask rmsmajestic he gets some cheap cards from time to time. https://ebay.com/usr/rmsmajestic He is also to fine on techinferno and notebookreview
  5. I fixed the issue using MSI afterburner, there is a setting that locks the core clock at max. I just can't remember what settings you should use. Something about the ULPS. Also go to RegEdit and search for everything called EnableULPS and change it from 1 to 0

    Alienware fan and cooling mods

    What you can do is look at the small sticker on the fans saying how much CFM it has. There is made different types for the m18x. For the m18x you can upgrade your CPU fan from around 4.5 CFM to 11.5 CFM if I remember correctly. Another Idea is to make my watercooling mod.

    [Tutorial] Dual 330W AC Adapter Mod

    I made a small experiment. I connected the Y90RR PSU together with my two XM3C3 PSU'S to get 990 watt. But it seems like the Y90RR do not work together with XM3C or just don't like multi-psu-mods. Anyway it will only deliver 90 watt max. When connected alone it can deliver 330 watt. It would be nice if someone can confirm that 3x XM3C3 PSU's can deliver 990 watt. Because 2x gtx 980m and a i7 2960xm can pull way more than 660 watt. Even though hwinfo64 measures like this: Gtx 980m 140 watt Gtx 980m 140 watt CPU 100 watt If I overclock the CPU to 4.9 ghz and keeps the GPU at stock it pulls 810 watt. If I want to keep the watt at 660 watt I need to set the CPU to 3.2 ghz. So if you have a i7 QM CPU and gtx 980m SLI you will not gain anything in games by upgrading to a XM or K CPU.

    Then download the modded bios version A5 from the first post. Remember you only have access if you give 5 quality post or something like that. If you need some interesting threads, or inspiration here is three:

    You may want to flash a vbios too if it does not work right away. Here is some tips: Do not completely put the Alienware back together before you know for sure the card is working. Install the modded bios before anything else. If you just get black screen after mounting the graphics card, unmount it again, turn on the laptop, go to bios and set the video setting to SW (switchable graphics). Now put back the graphics card and flash a new vbios. When finished see if you can switch the video setting to PEG now.

    Yes it was only showing the half of the powerdraw but the performance was correct. I just realized when overclocking 2 gtx 980m and the CPU, two PSU is not enough. Mr.fox described similar issue somewhere. I believe the solution was to connect the ID cable to the negative (black) cable.

    Very understandable. It seems like it is the wattmeter because it doesn't matter if it say 330 watt or 660 watt the performance is the same. But I see now that 2x 330watt is still not enough if I want to overclocke while running SLI. With both gtx 980m at stuck I can maximum overclock the CPU to 4.4 ghz. Even there it sometimes pulls 700 watt. If I overclock it to 4.9 ghz the gaming performance drops in SLI because it reaches 800 watt in no time. Overclock both gtx 980m is a no-go I can sometimes keep it around 660 watt if the CPU only is clock to 4.0 ghz Actually when running single gtx 980m I can have 4.6 ghz on the CPU and +181mhz core, +469mhz memory and +56mv on the GPU and it will pull almost 600 watt!

    What exactly does the diodes do? Also can you make a simple schematic how you connect them?

    [Tutorial] Dual 330W AC Adapter Mod

    Okay now I am getting somewhere. Yesterday I forced the problem to come back. Before I went to bed, I toke out the wattmeter from the wall leaving it on the table and connected the power strip directly to the wall, leaving the power on for the PSUs. This morning I switched off the power, toke the power strip out of the wall, plug in the wattmeter connected the power strip, switched the power back on a voilà it was working again. Now I am pretty sure the whole issue is the wattmeter!!! What I need to test now, is if the wattmeter is showing wrong values, or if it is causing a bottleneck. I tested it on my clothes dryer and I shows 4.000 watt. So it can indeed show large values. But it is still very strange behaviour.
