  1. time to move towards mobile workstation with battery packs and 3 display, only way to do this is to spend bigger bucks.
  2. really sad to see we going BGA route, intel and laptop manufacturer in general. imo MSI should have picked 4940mx to go with would have been far better..
  3. so i saw a vid with disassembled heatsink, and there it is!! BGA garbage
  4. with throttlestop we can adjust current to CPU so it should be fine no?
  5. so meaker is telling me this laptop has something of 6bins can oc to 4.4ghz? not sure how thats gonna work ummm
  6. quad core turbo only to 3.6ghz, thats a disappointment. it is basically the only way they can keep CPU cool with 2 heatpipes which is again shared with GPU, also one 350 watt PSU could be enough for this also cause of the lower clocked CPU. if its really socketed CPU then unfortunately I will not purchase until it's phasing out, in like 3-4 years for collection purposes only. i have a very strong feeling this is tilting the worst way possible that all future mobile CPU will be like this either extreme edition or not it'll all be BGA. gotta cross my finger and wait for clevo's brilliant idea for Desktop CPU in mobile sector. best part about desktop CPU is that they usually require much lower voltage to get to higher clock, and larger surface of IHS for heat dissipation, except it has crap tim under it. come on clevo, release x99 haswell E already, or x101 or something with skylake E
  7. you think clevo is making one with x99 chipset? i hope they do one so later on Broadwell E will fit nicely into the laptop, with metal chassis of course. also 4980HQ really is soldered BGA? what the hell such a good looking machine all gone to waste in an instant because of 1 soldered GPU.
  8. anyway to do this for 780m and also 980m vbios? for secure/fastboot
  9. lol i am the one currently owning his laptop. the matte screen is legit and non reflect alright. i had to do something about the bezel though. overall great asset to alienware and i'd say its must have compared to reflective display. also, loving his custom bezel alienware logo.
  10. you could be correct. iirc m17x R3 WIHD slot seems to be both USB and PCI. to my knowledge its different wiring/circuits and how it is powered and most company don't bother to add compatibility to them.
  11. what a great find, that is even a tad smaller than the one im using, amazing!! the msata slot in m18x R2 uses sata line, if your m14x msata slot can run a msata SSD, then its will not work with mPCIE card. wifi internet card is a mPCIE card. another thing is even though you purchase something and title says msata mPCIE card etc etc, they are only talking about the port and size. msata SSD card will NOT work in mini pcie slot that runs PCI or USB lane same for opposite. USB for USB, mPCIE for PCI, msata for msata...
  12. I don't know about m14x cause of the limited space. do you have two mPCIE ports in m14x? if you did then just need to check if they those slots run on USB or mPCIE lanes. the picture you see there is not a raid card its just a gen 2.0 mPCIE to sata card (card act as a bridge) which is why half length msata SSD will not work in that slot. that 90 degree angled sata thin cable goes into optical bay where I have another similar green half length card and that one is a raid card, which can go raid 1,0 and SPAN. no JBOD because no port multiplier on original mPCIE slot. get a couple power splitter it'll be a real tight fit to get all in ODD area. but if it just two HDD it should work out pretty well.
  13. old mod is gone, new one adds 1 more msata and 1 more 2.5 via pcie.
  14. why is 2000mhz 9-10-10 better for windows photoshop etc than 2133mhz 10-11-11? is it on CAS alone?
  15. yea thats the default advertized RAS which is 27 lol. wonder why they dont come with 27, weird. thanks Mr Fox for testing that as soon as I get mine I'll get that CL10 at 2133 lol
  16. service manual doesnt have tear down for the display as they sold entire display as one piece. regardless thanks for the help, i have found ways to disassemble it!
  17. bump, i want to know how to get inside, please do tell or a short guide/tutorial.. thanks
  18. dual 2.5" HDD bay in optical drive area look at drive 2, JMB352-raid 0. it gets picked up by intel 7 series raid controller but it doesnt appear in the bios though i had to file a tiny thin layer of interior bottom chassis to get two 7mm hdds to fit, didn't bother to make a new bracket for it. two 5mm should fit and still have space left, two 7mm without modding chassis would be a real tight fit and might end up tilting the daughterboard a tiny bit by 1 to 2 mm. raid board i got off ebay provides JBOD, Raid 0 and 1 I think. JBOD not working maybe cause port multiplier not working on optical drive cable. raid 0 performance at around 230mb/s 220mb/s read/write so for HDD its good. raid card: http://www.ebay.com/itm/SATA-to-Dual-SATA-RAID-0-Device-Adapter-w-Mounting-Kit-/280719990939?pt=US_Drive_Cables_dapters&hash=item415c37209b 13pin to 22pin sata: http://www.ebay.com/itm/261184737920?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649 thats total of five 2.5" HDD/SSD and one msata in m18xR2 or four 2.5" HDD in m18xR1! going for a 5x 2.5" and 2x msata in the R2 soon..
  19. u need a bios support for ivb cpu, bios not yet released from clevo
  20. with dual 330w psu, this system will have load of unused potential. come on clevo, dual screen it
  21. this laptop needs ivy E, and dual screen, something similar to lenovo w700 and 701ds. put that 4gb of gddr ram to good use
  22. a chip for unlocked bios!! don't got the machine and I likely won't have enough skills to use this unlocked chip.
