    [M17x R4] - 'unlocked' BIOS versions

    Yes a 120hz is 1920x1080 The way you can find out if you have a 120hz. If you have AMD graphics card = no If you have gtx 660m or lower = no If you use Nvidia Optimus = no If you have a sticker saying "3D vision" = yes If you go into Nvidia control panel, desktop resolution, and can set the resolution to 120hz = yes If you take off the keyboard, then you can see the screen connector, if it has screws on each side, it is 120hz if not it is 60hz.
  2. Also go into "integrated graphics" and change the settings from "auto" to disable. And in discrete graphics change the settings to always on.

    I wish you luck. I tried for fun replacing the ec with one from a m18x R1 because it was the same type, but no luck.

    It is possible it could be a wrong EC. I tried using a CH341A on R4. I ended up buying a new motherboard, I could not get it to work. It was completely dead.

    [M17x R4] - 'unlocked' BIOS versions

    Yes but you need to fiddle alot to make the clip stick to the bios chip. Have you tried resetting bios by taking out the CMOS battery, draining for power, put everything together, holding the FN key while booting up? Also there is a way to blindflash a bios, using a flash drive, put in esata port hold the END key while plugin the power cable back. Just make sure that no matter what DO NOT TURN IT OFF WHEN START BEEPING REALLY LOUD! Let it sit 1-2 Hours before thinking about shutting it down if nothing seems to be happening.

    Link is working, it is because you need to make something like 5 quality post on techinferno to get access to downloads. Try search for some modifications threads, maybe you can help with new ideas.

    Alienware M18XR2 & 980m

    Yes it does to work properly. It will work without the vbios but the performance will be better with the correct one.
  8. The m18x R1 can run the gtx 880m you just need the unlocked bios and correct vbios. I have tested my self.
  9. Maybe this is a stupid question. Are you also able to mod Alienware bios? I talk about the Alienware m17x r4?

    Alienware M18XR2 & 980m

    Yes the cable will be fine, also your heatsinks will fit too. Also if you need help with bios, and vbios you can always ask. I have upgraded multiple Alienwares.
  11. The throttling will come soon or later. But it will not be thermal throttle it will be powerlimit throttle. Both the Alienware m17x r3 and R4 and Alienware m18x R1 and R2 has a bug. I have tried them all both with gtx 780m, 880m, 980m and now 1070. They all powerthrottle in those systems. Gtx 880m was the worst. If your computer crash or you force it to shut down by holding the power button. Then you will get the powerthrottle issue. There is too ways to fix it. 1. Go to bios and switch to IGFX then restart and enter bios again and change it back to PEG. 2. When your computer is up and running then put it to hibernate for 3 second and wake it again, then the problem is gone until next time. (It needs to be hibernate, sleep will not work.) While I am here. There is a bug with the combination of windows 10, Alienware m17x r4 and sleep mode. If you put it to sleep and wake it again, the sound card will still be at sleep and not being detected. The fix is putting it back to sleep again and then wake it.
