For Sale:
Acer 5920G 15.6" Gaming Laptop (heavily upgraded and modfied)

Will Ship To: Anywhere

$315.00 SHIPPED US48

I have the laptop in my sig rig. it's not much but, the 4gb stick off drr2 sodimm should be worth at least 60 bucks USD shipped i paid (75 usd). the GPU should be worth 125-150 USD shipped. (i paid 200)

the GPU is MXM 2.1 TYPE II, it's one of the fasest GPUs money cna buy for that particular MXM slot as far as i know second to the HD4670 DDR3 however the GT240m runs cooler and consumes less watts.

it has a T9300

the motherboard has been PLL modded and it has the modded bios with extra options.

it's current overclocked to 2874mhz on the cpu and 230mhz on the bus (919.9 mhz total bus) and 766.6 on the RAM.

Oh it now has total of 6gb of ram AND i upgraded the wifi module to an AR9380.

I had some crashing a bit ago and i've back my clocks down form what my rig builder says. (had it coin mining for a few months in the corner of my room) it was dusty so i blew out the dust (there was a mound of it on the bottom cover) and drilled another air hole in the bottom cover.Currently the GPU is OCed too 625mhz core and 901mhz VRAM.

500GB 7200 RPM HDD and Win 7 Home Premium COA INCLUDED

http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Acer-Aspire-5920G-Notebook.4217.0.html


I've had this for 2 or so years while i've slowly upgraded it from stock 1 part at time. the OC has been pretty stable recently when i backed down the OC. untill then it's been coin mining for months in the corner of my room. i'v been gaming on these new lower clocks with no issue, i've been playing BioShock Infinite on medium low for an an hour or so each day for a few days.

i can play games even metro 2033 but, it only has 1 sata slot the cooling only works so well (why i modded the cooling){stays around 80C on the GPU while gaming, 70C on CPU), it is starting to age the screen can suck for web browsing (i'v begun using F11 fullscreen mode on firefox)

it is an MXM 2.1 TYPE II slot. here is the tech page for my style of mxm slot, http://www.mxm-upgrade.com/Tech_13.html


As it stands i'm somewhat sure this is pretty good hardware for $315, your not gonna get any thing that good at gaming in the $300 range new.


NOTE: I will put mesh on the new air hole, (material is at work and it's the weekend ATM.). i'll install a mesh before i ship it. I will include all the drivers and overclocking software.


BTW, asfar as cooling goes, it has new brand name quality thermal pads, copper shim on the GPU, somewhat fresh AS5 on top of my tweaks/mods.
Things you can do to it yet,

you can also buy a modded heat sink with a bigger fan from a guy i know.

You can actually upgrade the screen

You can turn the IDE ODD bay to into a SATA HDD bay.
$315.00 SHIPPED US48


This was recorded with a crappy video camera, the screen doesn't look like that, just showing it can play games at smooth enough frame rates at medium settings.


EDIT: 500GB 7200 RPM HDD and Win 7 Home Premium COA INCLUDED

this MXM 2.1 TYPE II The fastest card that fits is an HD4670 DDR3 and form what i understand it may only be marginally faster and is higher wattage/heat. Which over clocking helps close that gap.

last night i did some more testing and settled on 655mhz core and 977mhz vram though with cooling pad it can probably do 673|1003 which is what i was running it at before i decided to sell it but, it wasn't entirely stable when GPU mining but, was game stable.

I'd test a cooling pad with the new air holes on the bottom but, i do not own a cooling pad and am moving on to other projects.
