Questions on Alienware laptop

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just wondering.

Does alienware have Heat issues?

I mean.. they can compile all the high end processor and graphic unit into
a small system.

How can a overclocked CPU which needs a big HSF to cool it run on an alienware?

and also, how can a 4870x2 (the hottest GPU in the world) run smoothly
on a laptop ?

Alienware has ripoff issues.

Personally I have not had any issues with them, but they use dual fan cooling for the GPU and CPU, so it should handle it fine.

1. No really, lately it's been power issues. The mobo and psu cannot provide enough power to models with certain GPUs.

2. These are mobile parts not desktop parts they do not run as fast or as hot.

3. Again mobile parts a 4870x2 is not the same as the Mobility Radeon 4870x2 (ie.slower and less hot).
