Alienware 15 Model 2015 with GTX980m 4gb with unlocked vbios would 330w psu help

Recommended Posts

Hi all I have the above laptop listed in my title and was wondering,

I currently have a 230/240w dell charger and wanted to know if I upgraded to a Dell 330w psu if I would be able to overclock more and if it may damage my board?

Any advice would be great

thanks

Sorry, I figured someone else with more hands on knowledge with the 2015 AW15 would reply.

No, your current power supply is plenty for overclocking what you have in there.

If you research complete benchmarks for people using any rig with a 980m, even AW laptops (17 included), nobody ever needs more than between 150 and 190W total with their machine. The 980 and 970 are both very power efficient, you'll likely create heat damage on your board before you top out your power supply.

I ordered a 330w and it did make a difference. My processor for one would not go into turbo mode when the gpu was working to its max however with this PSU it works at 3.3ghz. I am using Premas unlocked VBIOS also with the GPU running at 1.27ghz (thank you Prema) Very happy with results!!
