    [Guide] - M15x with AMD 7970m

    if clock stays about 300/450 than it proberbly stealth mode..........i would not go for a 7970m better get a 970 gtx unless the 7970m is really cheap.

    My first Alienware experience with AW17R2

    never had a problem with alienware before and they even helped me wen i was out of warrenty (after bios update gone wrong), i guess there are a few faults every where this doesnt mean there bad.....youre just unlucky. i can tell horror story about so many other company's.

    Alienware M15X project computer

    to be honest i never had any problems on my alienwares and i can tell you i did some wierd things to them, only ADM cards seem too have memory problems (overheating)....i did watercooling and lots more.....in the link something about stealth mode. HOW TO DISABLE STEALTH MODE IN M15X ??? - Alienware Forum - Alienware Club - Dell Community Gr Mike

    in order to work well you need too take it out, also could be that youre CPU is bottle necking the system.......with the gtx970m and the 920xm mine does as well overclocking save's the day for me. besides that a SSD works better.

    a little like a grain of rice and the pressure Always made it a good clean covering. i use some screws i bought in China http://forum.techinferno.com/alienware/8925-x-bracket-screws.html you might wanna look at them.

    the pads should be oke i think because i use the same..... are you using the Original screws? than the you need to adjust the hight on the x clamp or get other srews like i did.

    Get watercooling .........or extreem aircooling the rest will all produce more heat even if you lower voltage a little and overclocking it temps will rise. go for lower setting so that FPS is higher, but thats my vision offcourse i run hybride cooling on a gtx970 and play cod adv on high but i also set stuff down a little. temps go up a little because of good cooling. i also have a 7970m but temps go up fast unless i get settings down (not hybride cooled) the mem goes up and they are higher because off bad memorycooling on the M15x i know some may not agree but the main problem on the ati/amd cards is the memory they get way too hot and kill most cards. on my gtx970m the memory gets hotter than the GPU. just an example running alien vs predator benchmark.
  25. One could also do a extreem mod like this.....
