post #61 of 202
I had the Alienware 15 R2 for a few weeks and it was a 15.6" screen size. It fit in my sweet backpack too. I loved that part big time. I personally don't have the best eye sight due to a injury at work back in 2000. I have to wear a hard contact in 1 eye to make my eye sight back to 20/25 in that eye, or it's 20/800 without LOL. It was hard for me to game on the 15.6" screen when normally I game on a Asus Swift 27" 1440p 144hz screen size. Moving up to the 17.3" screen size was definitely a big help for me, personally. Just due to my situation. I wish I could say different because a 15.6" laptop size is so much easier to carry around and manage IMHO. This new dell model would have been a great choice for me then. I like a lot about it. I seriously has a AWESOME cooling setup in it.

And OP, will you please answer the question I've been asking a few times now? LOL. Have you tried overriding the fan with some software of any type? I would love to hear and I'm sure others would too if you can achieve better temps with that sweet cooling setup if you set some fan profiles on your own. Not hard to answer that one tongue.gif

I'd like to see how this laptop performs with some CLU on the CPU and GPU. biggrin.gif In-fact, I've wanted to try that stuff out so badly, I should be getting some for my birthday. I'll test it out on my old xps 14 and if all goes well I'll definitely prepare to use it on my new XPS 15 when the price is right....

Apparently the XPS 15 is getting a reputation for having terrible thermal paste. Alot of people are just using normal thermal paste and reporting a good 5C drop...

The thing is, I'd go about repasting if temps were bad... but the temps are so low for a gaming laptop, I highly doubt there's ANY reason to swap out the TIM right now. I mean, 77*C CPU and 71*C GPU temps are AMAZING in games...

What would be hella interesting is if they made an i5-6300HK version biggrin.gif

Also just noticed you have it noted as DDR3L? Well later you can upgrade to 2133Mhz to help out the CPU in higher CPU overhead scenarios

Could you also run a CPUz bench score and post the screenshot in the OP?
Current version is 1.75.

DO you have Far Cry 4? If so how does that game run on the laptop? The way it sits right now, I play the game @ 1080p and SMAA AA which sets me up around 2.5GB Vram. That's my absolute most demanding game on my rig and I'd think 2GB would be ok with lower graphics settings.

Does it have a significantly higher impact as 2133mhz over just the standard 1600mhz? o.O

No bud, some manufactures are using the Skylake cpu's on a DDR3 mobo and that's all that board will support. None of them that I've seen can put DDR4 in them. It's up to the manufacture to EITHER use a DDR3 or DDR4 setup. One or the other, not both. As far as everything I seen. I could be wrong, but there's no point in them putting DDR3 in there if it COULD support DDR4. That just don't make sense. I seen a couple other setups that were still on DDR3 as well.

I just looked on Dell's site for customizing this laptop and it doesn't show DDR4 as being any type of upgrade option at all. I'm pretty sure that it's not possible to change.

Not that I've seen performance wise yet. It's less power hungry than DDR3 as it takes less voltage. 1.2v instead of 1.35v-1.65v.. Not sure if any laptops are going all the way up to 1.65v tho?

I wouldn't be replacing the TIM either if I were you. With temps under 80c while gaming for long periods, there's no need at all. My MSI only hits about 70-75c max while I game for hours. If I turn on the Cool Boost 3 feature it drops to only maxing out around 55-60c, but you can definitely hear the fans when they are running 100%. MSI came out with a "Silent Option" software that overrides the fan curves and will let you change it how you like, but there's no support for the newest versions of the GT72 6QD, or other 6QD models. I would like to give that a go once they release a Win 10 version. I might give MSI a call and see when it's happening?

Kinda why I've been asking if you have tried to override the fans with HWinfo64 or something to see how that helps, being that it has such a nice cooling setup.

What? I never brought up ddr4 bud lol I just mentioned 2133mhz because that's the most you can get out sodimm without an overclock. His platform has DDR3L, which was the first point addressed in my last post.

Look up Kingston Impact 2133Mhz when you get a chance, They have both DDR3L and DDR4.

Anyways hi speed memory has been shown to help cpu overhead in scenarios that hit the cpu hard. There is a thread on ocn by Bradley showing his findings. It will be different in each case naturally though. Is it something I would say to run out and go do right now? nah, but your itching for some FPS in CPU limited area's it might be worth looking into.

Here is the link for the RAM differences, depends on the scenario of course. Average minimums get a 4-10 FPS improvement.

So I think I decided I want the i7-6700hq. The i5 is great but I'm really wanting something that will match the performance of my desktop in the cpu department and eventually as thunderbolt takes off, hopefully keep my 970 and be able to use that in a thunderbolt box via the tb3 connection... Then I could easily handle anything I throw at it. Plus I plan on having the laptop 5-6 years so I want the best of the best.
Just for reference my 2500k gets around a 165 single core cinebenchr15 score and 655 for multi, looks like the 6700hq can't match the single core performance but it's close and it definitely can match the multicore performance. That's pretty sweet really!

That 960m looks quite powerful especially overclocked! It's quite exciting what dell has managed this generation. I feel like they've had a big lul since their last decent xps or gaming inspiron. I'm gonna wait to see what my tax refund will be this year to make a decision... Helps when you've got a grad student as your spouse... Makes for a nice tax refund. Lol

LOL, my bad. I seen you say DDR3 in the sentence before, then saying 2133mhz. All the new systems that are on Skylake platform are 2133mhz default and I slipped there thinking you meant going to DDR4 because of the speed you said. It was late and I was tired, but yes my mistake there. Others has posted to pull the DDR3 out and put DDR4 in on some other threads I've been in and thought that's what was going on there for a sec. Sorry bout that redface.gif

But then yeah, I agree about moving up from 1600mhz to 2133mhz also, especially seeing those video's where the OP's cpu was pegged at 100%. That should help a ton. Also in the mishaps of thinking you meant going from DDR3 to DDR4, when I looked on Dell's site, I noticed that this laptop in all models came only with 1 stick of Ram and all of them are running "single channel" memory. Getting a pair of DDR3 2133mhz low latency sticks should help a good bit, especially going to "dual channel" memory setup as well. I would be all over doing that. I can't run single channel in any pc I have. That would just make me go nuts and bother me every time I turned it on LOL.

Again TheReciever, my bad, simple mistake of being tired as hell buttkick.gif

It sure can bud. I would want to get into dual channel as fast as possible if it were me and I was playing games on it.

I have a good question for you tho and this may help you out too. If that SSD in your laptop is a Samsung like most companies are putting in right now, you might be able to use the Samsung Magician Software and then with 16gigs of Ram, you can enable RAPID mode and that will dedicate 4gigs of your system Ram as a cache drive for the SSD and make it have burst speeds around 10-14 times faster than the 500-550mb/s speeds of Sata SSD's. Not sure if it will work on the SSD you have or not, but definitely worth a try.

Here's a pic of RAPID on my Samsung 850 Evo when I was running that before I just installed the 950 Pro. You can see it's getting WAY MORE speed than the 540mb/s read and 520mb/s writes that it's rated at. It seriously made things a lot faster.
