Settling In (2/7)



  1. oh gawd, they're bad looking. I still need to see one in person since I have considered a m14x as a portable now with going to a desktop in april. Chiclet keyboard and the front grill, whats happened? The older design was rehashed for a few generations and maybe its grown on me. Time to wait and see like most of you guys.
  2. Never. Only works without ati drivers of any kind installed on win8. Never tried expanded settings as without drivers makes it useless. Hopefully someone will get it before I sell my own little beast Sent from my DROID BIONIC using Tapatalk 2
  3. @dalan if you get a 240w psu with your new m17x, let us know if it still has the power indicator ring. I tape mine off with electrical tape although if they left it, it'd be wonderful if somehow it supported matching the color from some part of AlienFX. I couldn't stand the mismash when using non blues/purples. And honestly sometimes all the extra leds gets a bit bothersome when I can't shut them off.
  4. Miro, Middletown bios contributor awesome. That bios has saved me countless heartaches with my my thinkpad laptop home server (yes I'm using a ultra trusty IBM thinkpad for a home server) Btw what eng and year Honda? Pm me or new thread. Just wondering, I got a 6 that I'd like to do some things on someday Sent from my DROID BIONIC using Tapatalk 2
  5. yes the dell vbios will work on the clevo card. while the dell rom's are larger, its empty padding bytes - info from @svl7. And I myself have used both Clevo and Dell vbios on the Clevo 7970m When you flash a different vendor, you'll get a mismatched ssid and will need to force the flash with -f. You should also create a backup of your original vbios for safe keeping.
  6. can someone post up Clevo EM bios with Enduro and the Dell v21 vbios? I can't seem to find those 2 on quick order and would like to mess with them tonight. Thanks in advance!
  7. I've been trying out the Clevo vs. Dell bios on my Clevo card in the m15x to see if I could get automated fan controls - no luck, still need hwinfo64. Will try both vbios' on a few different monitors and tvs later this week for displayport. I'm using a aftermarket Siig DP->HDMI btw
  8. @frostie TRL 24/22/20/20 at TPL 65/62. Cat 12.11b, currently on the latest beta, has played well with all betas. Only issues I hit is sluggish performance if I resume from sleep mode and start gaming, requiring a reboot.
  9. Razr Copperhead and Logitech G5 v2 DPI: 2,000 Logitech because I was so used to the size after the mx518. Had a rough transition for texture of 518 to g5v2 and now really comfortable with the copperhead feel. Guess im lazy with mice, I got used to on in the early 2000s and stuck with it
  10. unless something has changed, you'll need to use hwinfo to control the fan speeds with the clevo 7970m in the m15x. the dell 7970m has automatic fan control working
  11. Hm, looks fine to me for modulation and no throttling although for 8 threads I believe the wPrime score should be considerablly better. Like x24 ~309seconds Going to standby and see what the more informed posters thoughts are though. edit: my bad, thought TS bench used wPrime doh.
  12. If it stresses or sets clock yes. I don't use kombustor except on a desktop with gtx470 to auto load overclock. It's been fire and forget the last year. Curiously what are your idle clock temps like on the 7970m Sent from my DROID BIONIC using Tapatalk 2
  13. Check gpu fan speeds when over 71 or 75c. Override with hwinfo64 to 5000rpm and recheck temps. If still high, repaste Sent from my DROID BIONIC using Tapatalk 2
  14. Hi kack, im on windows 8. I haven't had any severe performance issues although I haven't played the same games on 8 as I did Win7. Although now im curious and need to install a bench and see how it does, self doubt lol Update: performance as good as Win7. Ended up with 0.975v vbios and cutting my xm oc. Borderlands 2 runs like a dream maxed out 1080p. Low physx of course Sent from my DROID BIONIC using Tapatalk 2
