I wanted to, but decided not to give it a try since I need at least one stable computer in the house
What are you using to overclock?

Is the performance increase good? (GPU Overclock?)
I also wanted to but this is my only computer capable of running games (don't want to destroy GPU) I plan to do it when it begins to struggle with medium settings on the future games.

I recently broke CoreTemp when I changed the CPU overclock from 158 to 156. (1.41GHz when Turbo Boost & Speedstep are not on. Somehow it's faster with a lower speed :S) I just tested Mafia 2 Demo and seen it

This isn't normal. Is it

Try using HW Monitor, it was accurate for me. I have my FSB clocked @ 166 with HT and turbo on. The increase makes Fallout 3 at max settings 2xMSAA, 16xAF go from ~25 fps to over 30 fps.

Thanks
I was just looking at another thread with a picture of it posted on it when you posted it here

I'll still use core temp at the side to see what random temperatures it will show next

Attachment 201475

What is ST9500...?

In Fallout New Vegas usually get 28 to 40 or sometimes more with 2x aa & a mix of random max & low (quite a few are low or off) settings. I put the view distance up so I could actually see people ahead & so they wouldn't just fade in when they start shooting at me.

Most Demanding game I have for my M11x is R.U.S.E. I play at medium but will slow a bit when late into a fight. Don't care/sometimes never notice much though.
One of the reasons it does is that I like to make huge unnecessary attacks. i.e Massive tank assaults, Parachute 200 units into one area & Artillery strike spam (Against ai only though) e.g 110 of the Heavy Mortars (Could take out a King Tiger & anything around it in the first barrage leaving only a huge cloud of smoke and lots of holes in the battlefield )
I'll get a picture of it XD

I can play Crysis on medium smoothly without AA. The gpu overclock definitely helped with NV too. The main reason I overclocked the cpu was for emulators, which need sheer clock speed.
Just curious, what is your average fps in the Mafia 2 bench on high 1366 x 768 no AA? I just ran it and I got an average of 29.9. BTW, the ST9500 is probably your HDD.
I just ran the Mafia 2 bench at stock settings and got an average of 28.4.

NOTE: This is the Demo
Attachment 201624
^Did one before immediately after I played R.U.S.E and got 18FPS Avg because of heat. (80C at start) This one was at 60C before I started

I overclocked the CPU because I wanted to render videos faster in Sony
Vegas & for better performance when recording.

This is the reason I can't play R.U.S.E at mid without a bit of lag
Attachment 201625

2700+ Strong on the ground & 200+ Ready in the air (it doesn't say I have 200 in the pic because some were moving and it marks them as busy and does not display.

Around 50 Recon units (It shows 111 in production because I was sending them into the enemy base for fun as they had no weapons to destroy the buildings or other units and I wanted to see what the enemy would do against such a useless force. Half of them made it but I never used them so didn't count.
About 1200 Heavy Mortar units (Record for me )
Around 625 Armored AA Units
200 Unarmored multipurpose AA & Anti Tank
Around 475 Super-Heavy Tanks equipped with 1 Main Gun with 500m range, Rockets, a Flamethrower & machine guns. Usually in large groups
The rest are mostly random types of units

Every one funded by 3 HQs that give 1$ per 4 seconds, some supply depots at the start and probably around 100 Admin Buildings (you can try to count the yellow 1$ if ya want ) which also give 1$ per 4 seconds

Apparently Dell came out with a new nvidia driver for the m11x R1. Gonna try it out soon and see how it works out.

I would like to thank Dell/Alienware for creating the R2.
