  1. Tech at XOTIC PC said it can only be upgraded up to 980m and display cannot because the chipsets are different. No 1070 or 1080 because of chipsets as well. I bet someone has done it though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Dell ALW17-15306sLV is the one I have and its referred to as Alienware 17. Might call today to see if they can do that.
  3. Thanks for the reply. I have the 2014 model but I'll contact them to see if that's possible.
  4. Is it possible to upgrade the display from the alienware 17 (2014) which is 1080p to the 4k display from the new alienware 17? Thanks in advance!
  5. Thanks. Sounds like a lot of work maybe I should just stick to an external display/monitor. I don't think I want to go through all that but it's cool to know that it's possible for someone to do.
  6. Is it possible to upgrade the 1080p display on my Aleanware 17 R5 (Alienware 17 2014 (GTX 880M)) to a 4k display from the newer 17 R3 or other options?
  7. Thanks again Sent from my SM-N900T using Tapatalk
  8. Perfect Thank you so much for all the information. So I guess all I need to do is find a motherboard which most efficient in the the way c state is implemented in their bios.
  9. I'm thinking of purchasing a 5960x for my multi purpose 24/7 server. I've been testing Wake On Lan with my current setup and it's not consistent in terms of always being able to wake up. So I rather just have it always running. My current server is an Intel i7 875k with an evga p55 sli motherboard. I have it idling at about 65 watts at the wall measured with a killawatt. So finally to my question. What's the best motherboard for both over clocking and saving power? Also what tips to lower power consumption other then under clocking and under volting ram and cpu? Is there any motherboard that can run less cores as needed with the 5960x? I plan on under clocking it very low and have a very high turbo boost.
  10. I was thinking of doing some "overclocking" under Windows with XTU. Rising the turbo boost a little but before I start tinkering I want to make sure I wont brick it. Im pretty sure it wont carry into OS X. Any thoughts?
  11. How limiting would this be say if I have an Alienware 17 R5 the one with 880M and 4910MQ if I were to plug this in the wireless card mpcie ( x1 PCI 2.0~3.0?) slot and use a GTX 780 Ti? My guess is that it will out perform the gtx 880m but is the 1x mpcie a huge bottle neck?
  12. I know that much thanks (about the amplifier). I just wanted a full gaming experience on the go with a 980m and the 4980hq for video rendering. The amplifier is just a bonus for me cause I have a gaming desktop and that defeats the purpose of being mobile. I'll just stick to my Alienware 17 R5 for work/play and my personal grid(GameStream) server + Shield when I need to be extra mobile. Thank you guys for the quick response.
  13. Can the new Alienware 13" be fitted with a GTX 980M and 4980HQ?
  14. Update so the only way to get one is to order a laptop with it or know someone in the system. Also Alienware, XoticPC, Clevo do not have any info/deny any compatibility with replacing say clevo gtx 980m in to the alienware 17. Card might fit but between bios and heat sink it may not work out at the moment. Doing the above will also void warranty so I've been told numerous times today.
