    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.
  2. The m18x R1 can run the gtx 880m you just need the unlocked bios and correct vbios. I have tested my self.
  3. 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.
  5. 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.

    [M17x R4] - 'unlocked' BIOS versions

    You can make a thread with a mod or idea you have. It could be custom painting your Alienware or experimenting with cooling. You can see if some of my threads could give inspiration.

    [M17x R4] - 'unlocked' BIOS versions

    https://www.techinferno.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=11973 This is the download link. If you can not use it, it is because you have not made enough quality posts yet. (Read the rules) A think you can try is pressing FN+F7 The exact function is unclear, but it should switch between IGFX, PEG and SG. You need to restart each time. Also you need to have installed Alienware OSD (on-screen-display) and Alienware command center for it to work.

    [M17x R4] - 'unlocked' BIOS versions

    1. What link is not working? 2. What graphics card are you using? 3. Have it been working before? 4. If you are going change the bios, change it to an unlocked bios and set the primary display to PEG and see if it works.

    Here are the files needed. Notice the prr is called prr2, you might have to rename it to prr to make it work. FPT_DOS.zip prr2.zip
