OFFICIAL: Alienware M17x R3 / R4 - Owners Lounge


Recommended Posts

Still alive.

I also have not found a way to overclock 2920/2960XM in M17xR3. I do know there's a older BIOS here from m18x ported to M17x that should allow it but I would prefer getting it to work on original M17xR3 bios.

They don't have multiplier setting in BIOS so cannot OC. 


I think older version of XTU and Windows 7 worked fo OC but I cannot find which version it was. 


TS does not allow OC either with M17xR3 & 2920/2960XM. 


It's a shame as even a 15" Dell Precision M4600 has XM support but our bigger badder M17xR3 cannot do XM CPU correctly. 


There is one person who got XM CPU OC but they never said how (On M17xR3)
