    Waranty sticker

    I just bought a new GS60 with GeForce GTX 970m and I opened a ticket basically asking if I were to upgrade my SSD and memory would I lose my warranty doing so. I would have returned the unit despite absolutely loving it if that were to void my warranty this is the response I got and it was only a few minutes after I submitted my ticket. Dear Customer, We do not enforce the sticker we do allow customers to open the bottom panel as long as no damage is done while that is done the warranty will not be voided. So again you can open the bottom panel without voiding the warranty. Thank you, That was all the info I needed to order my new SSD and memory. I am thrilled with my GS60, Ive seen several people review the GS60 and incorrectly indicating that the chasis is plastic and feels "cheap" which couldn't be further from the truth its an incredibly sturdy Magnesium Alloy. Sorry i'm getting way off topic I basically intended on just posting their response. You are OK to break the seal just don't break anything else and you'll be golden Kal

    MSI G-Series Unlocked BIOS

    Is there any chance we might get XMP support modded into the new GS60 variant with GeForce GTX 970m & 1920x1080 display UEFI? I'd be willing to test and whatnot. Kal

    Possible M14x BD-ROM drive

    I bought and have been using the UJ-267 in my M14x R2 for a while now, I quite like it. The only irritating thing is Fn+F6 doesn't seem to work for eject any longer, but with all the upgrades/changes i've done to my M14x the BDR being the last thing the unit finally feels complete. I have 8GB of DDR3 1866Mhz memory, a 256GB Crucial mSATA SSD, a Hitachi 1TB 7200RPM HDD, and the Matsushita UJ267 BDRE I had a 500GB HDD in the unit initially and I was originally intending on getting a ~500GB SSD for applications and storage, but the more I thought about it pushing the boundaries of my 500GB HDD i had installed, I found the 1TB hitachi hard drive, I didn't even know it existed, I had never seen a 9.5mm 2.5" 1TB 7200rpm drive before so it was a no brainer and I absolutely love it.

  4. I'm curious about this too, is the option to avoid the GPU throttling available in this BIOS? Either way Thanks so much for your work! Kaldon
  5. Hey Everyone, The title says it all. I'm looking for the most epic, awesome, amazing laptop bag for my M14x R2. I am open to pretty much any style: messenger, Backpack; whatever. I want to have room for the lappy, power cable, tablet, 2.5" portable hdd, maybe my PS Vita and my litle belkin 3 port surge protector with USB ports. Please reccomend those that are awesome. I would like to stay under the $100.00 mark. If I get a good number of responses I'll gift the winner with something out of my Steam inventory i have quite a few extra games in there. In High Regard, Kaldon

    Alienware M14x R2 A04 BIOS

    Well its worthless for me, it still throttles to shit and USB is still broken. WTG Dell!
  7. The dell site says nothing, does anyone know what changes are in the A04 BIOS? I'm about to flash it momentarily. Kaldon:ambivalence: OK, I've flashed it with no problems, was there a USB Debug option in the BIOS before? I don't recall it but I never specifically looked for it. The VBIOS version is now 80.07.28.00.26 my old version was 80.07.16.00.04 My fingers are crossed that they removed the 65C thermal limit... Will be testing that next. Im also going to see if my USB 3.0 problem is fixed with external drive constantly remounting. Kal
  8. When are we going to see some available test BIOS? I'm itching to put my R2 through the paces! Kaldon

    My M14x R2 PCH cooling mod

    just replacing the thermal pad with some high quality pad from frozencpu.com made a significant difference to the PCH temperature. Kaldon
  10. I would love to give the Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra a try but im just not ballsy enough to use it on my M14x R2. Call me a pansy but I can just see myself getting it on the top of the GPUs tiny components and frying the shit out of it. Kaldon I used MX4 for my repaste, I decided against IC Diamond due to its ability to scratch...
  11. I went out today and picked up a 2.5" USB 3.0 enclosure and a 32GB USB 3.0 thumb drive to use with my new M14x R2. I got home and moved my hard drive over to the new enclosure, plugged it in, got the familiar noise it popped up and I started copying some files from the drive to my internal drive. After about 20 seconds the USB disconnect noise happened the drive disappeared the copy failed and 5 seconds later the plugin noise happened the drive popped back up ready for access again. This is happening on both USB 3.0 ports with the 2.5" drive and the 32GB USB 3.0 thumb drive I bought. It stays connect for 15secs to 1min disconnects and reconnects within 10 seconds. I uninstalled and reinstalled the USB 3.0 drivers to no avail. Does this indicate I have a bad board or is this another issue with the M14x R2 USB thats been going around? I will absolutely NOT put up with another computer as problematic as my M11x R1 was.

    Bluray drive (9.5mm) for M14x R1?

    Please disregard my post, I was under the impression that drive would work based on some other information i'd seen i'm so glad i was proven wrong when I was, as I was planning on ordering the 5850 tomorrow, turns out there is a Panasonic UJ267 that is a burner like the UJ167 is a reader, but the UJ267 is 400 bucks... Either way thanks for pointing out my error.

    My M14x R2 PCH cooling mod

    Do you think it would be a good idea to put some of the Fujipoly thermal pad between the PCH and the factory metal contact? I ordered some 0.5mm and 1.0mm thermal pad, so I can use the thinner of the 2 if it would provide any improvement. its 6.0w/mk thermal pad, I haven't used it as yet, personally, it will be here on Monday but I've heard really good things. I'll be replacing the factory pad on my GDDR5 with it, may make no difference but i figure what the heck, might as well when i pull it apart to repaste.
  14. I got my M14x R2 on Tuesday with the standard 500GB 7200RPM HDD, I'm trying to decide if I should go with any of the standard 750GB 7200RPM 2.5" drives, or if I should consider the 750GB Seagate Momentus XT considering its not going to be used as a boot drive. I bought and used the 500GB Seagate Momentus XT pretty much the day it came out for my M11x R1 and I never for a second regretted the decision, it was fantastic, I'm just not sure its necessarily worth the price difference to use the 750GB XT as a Game/Storage/Media drive. I would appreciate any considerations anyone might provide as to the advantages/disadvantages of choosing one way or the other.

    My M14x R2 PCH cooling mod

    Im curious, what is between the current little piece of metal and the PCH as shipped from the factory? Is it just a standard thermal pad? Either way, keep up the good work, this is a great idea!
