New member from az with new xps 15 l502x

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello I'm a new member from az just bought a new Dell xps 15 l502x. I go to school for computer engineering and an good with computer. I went online to search for overclocking and temperature modifications and found this website and joined. My question is a simple one aside from overclocking and temp modifications, what are some things I can do to my new, stock bios configs to make my laptop run to it's full potential without sacrificing memory, data loss and the risk of hardware failure. I'm just looking for simple things to change in the bios and or in windows. The specs on my Dell xps 15 l502x are:

Intel i5 dual core with turbo boost
6gb ddr3 ram
Nvidia g force 525m graphics 1gb with optimus.
Led 720p screen

Thanks looking forward to this forum and my new laptop. Should be here in a week or so.

I'm not terribly sure about anything special you could do to your BIOS.. In my experience Laptops and OEM Desktops tend to have extremely restrictive BIOSes, but somebody else may be able to help you out a little more

I own the laptop you have , and unless you can find someone whos already made custom bios , or is able to flash a set matching it , Similair to what People were doing a few years ago when HP sold its black Bird Gaming PC , if you had an ASUS Striker Extreme Motherboard , you could flash the Blackbird Bios onto them.
