post #21 of 670
In, I have an m11x, unable to post pictures until later in the week however.
So far I have overclocked the GPU (don't remember exact clocks) and CPU (via bios), I plan on pinmodding the PLL when I get back from the desert and overclocking the cpu further, trying to figure out what I would have to do to get a proper voltmod for the cpu. Without a voltmod 1.9ghz is possible with an average chip, so even still I will see good things . Other than that I'm just waiting for 500gb SSDs to go down in price, I like having this 500gb HDD in here, and its over half full, if I went down in capacity it would be crippling to my experience.

So, I ordered an M11x on 5/3/2010. I have been constantly refreshing Dell's order status patiently waiting for this laptop to come in. I have an estimated delivery date of 5/19/2010.

Voltmods possible? I probably won't do it before it actually is out of my warranty, just 1 year haha.

Hey yours is quick, mine was ordered the day it came out and I got it like a month and something after...

Yes, although since its a BGA chip it could get a little precarious, hence why I'm trying to find an alternative, possibly altering the voltage regulation circuit slightly to up the voltage, but its still a risky operation, the pinmod for the PLL simply disables TME, which can be done with software if someone rights a TME hack for this specific clock generator, other than that its a simple hardware mod just requiring you to lift one leg of a resistor off of a single pin on the PLL. Some guys with a Sager notebook that had the same PLL with a faster processor figured out how to do it theres a thread over at notebook reviews:

Yeah, I think I'll leave it as is, going to 1.9Ghz instead of 1.73 is not a big deal to me...

I've added everyone to the list so far, if you know other people with Alienware laptops (even the older models) try and spread the word!

Hope you enjoy it when you get it, that shipping date is a lot faster than mine is going to be! I placed my M15x order on 5/6/2010 and the estimated delivery date is 5/24/2010, order status is still "In Production" unfortunately...

m11x owner as well, as for the 5870's on the m17x, yes they can be added in CFX, if you order the lappy with a single 5870 it will have a CFX connector on it and you just need to buy another 5870 and the CFX cable.

Theoritically yes, but it is much more expensive that way.
