I bought a 5.25 internal LG HD-DVD/Blu-Ray combo for $99 from frys. I already have hardware to power and adapt it to my usb port. Until reliable optical sata to esata chips come out in the next few months. Woot! It doesnt burn, it just needs to RIP lol.

Whatsup Shifty? Idk if you remember me, but we met @ microcenter last year ( i bought some ram from you)...

ANYWAYS, I just picked up a p-7805u w/ the LG 1920x1200 Screen (SCORE!!!). I've been doing some research, and e-wrecked says the bios update isn't supporting quadcore... Did I miss something?

Hi Guys,

I have the p-7801-u that I got off newegg for $1,699 a month or two ago. It has the P8400, 4GB DDR3 1066mhz, 9800M-GTS 1GB, and I also got matching 7200RPM 320GB's in a raid-0.

I am very sad to see that there is no way to overclock the cpu yet... I am amazed this hasn't been done yet on a chipset this popular.

Also, I seem to be getting pretty low benchies with my raid setup. In vista x64 and windows 7 beta I am getting like 77MB/s read speed when the single drive got around 60MB/s I believe. I am using raid-0 with a 128k stripe size.

Finally, I would really love to OC the gpu as well but ntune crashes my system with a blue screen whenever I click on the performance tab and accept the agreement. Also, riva tuner doesn't work as it won't show me the profile used for 3d, only the various 2d modes.

you can try enabling both settings in device manager for cache. that should speed some things up and give you a burst rate of 1000 to 1200
you'll probably need to go either 32kb to 64kb on the stripe if the above doesn't help any..

and as for the quad in a fx lappy...it was a no go. been tried and didn't work. and maggie says it's still not truly supported yet. doesn't mean it wont happen... e wrecked is still working on it.
