  1. We have a very very similar laptop. difference being you have gtx 980 and 32gb ram lol

  2. Sorry, I didnt know that was the same exact model of PSU. Please forgive me for the misinformation.
  3. I just think it might be good enough to buy a new power supply Unit. Try diagnosing the motherboard with another PSU and check if its damaged or not. Then what id recommend is this PSU: https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-SuperNOVA-Modular-Warranty-120-G1-0650-XR/dp/B00K85X2AW

      NO chillpad man!


      Temps are between 135 degrees fariengheit to atmost 170.


      I have the fans at 100% but it overclocks to that speed when its plugged in.


      When its not its at 2.4GHz instead of 3.6GHz

      Sometimes if its really cold it goes to 4.3Ghz but thats rare.

      That's pretty fuggin cool that you got such a massive OC out of a laptop.  Personally I don't like stressing laptops because I don't see them as being robust on power delivery or cooling but if those are your temps maybe alienware built it to be a champ?  My basis is coming from folding at home where my laptop overheated like crazy on a chill pad.  In my limited experience I would say that if it's only the cpu overclocked and you have temps that manageable you should be fine short of an avx workload.  For daily use and gaming you won't see huge power or heat soaks.  Sorry for criticizing your apparently epic achievement but I've had a few and to me my words are golden lmao.  But honestly I'm just bored and looking to interact on something I'm interested in.


      What I should of said was, Holy ballz that's a huge OC on anything let alone a laptop.

  5. I Am Temporarily back in the Forums because I have A Boatload of work to do so, Hope you all stay Safe but Catch your Rays!


    Later Guys!


  6. if you were going to upgrade, First check your CPU Specifications for the Maximum amount of memory it can hold. Other than that just get the RAM sticks after what I told you Above this text.
  7. The “U” stands for Unbuffered so you don’t have to worry about that. Hope it all goes well.
  8. Smart Fan management then to conserve power? Maybe only one turns on when basic tasks are being done but two turn on when there is a demanding task?
  9. When you need that UHD 4K Crisp Images outta Ya Glorious GameBoy, Everyone Knows you mean Business.
  10. Turn the Fans to 100% and clean out the Notebook. Re-apply thermal Paste and BOOM! Fixed. Because I had an Alienware 15_R1 that had been thermal throttling for Weeks after playing games at ULTRA. I decided to go investigate and opened the computer to find out the HDD,RAM,Network Card and Heatsinks were clogged with DUST. I Hoped for the Best when I took off the heatsinks but alas, The Thermal paste on the CPU and GPU were as hard as Cement, No joke.
  11. While Everyones Rocking their RTX 2080s and other Doo-Hickies,

    Im over here doing 110FPS at 1080p with Raytracing and a GTX 980M overclocked.

      I just did a new system, or half of one.  And honestly I don't notice a difference in the games I play.  Only reason I bought a new one is I spent 6 month's trying to figure out why my old one was crashing while gaming and couldn't figure it out.  With lock down on the horizon the last thing I wanted was to have no gaming machine.  I went ballz deep on the hardware because I'm going to sell my server's and replace both of them and my gaming machine with just one machine, same thing a friend of mine did.

  12. Hope it goes well! Im doing Ray tracing on my 980M at 30FPS
  13. Alright the 590 is the best in terms of 200 dollar graphics card and should easily be at 188 when bought used. Hope you can have the best Graphics In games.
  14. Are you interested in Nividias 16 and 15 series Graphics Cards? If no then id recommend the RX 590. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JQDKNXS/ref=twister_B07ZXYJFMJ?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
