Hi guys, I need some advice. I have the 1st Alienware Alpha with an i7 4785T. I have upgraded the RAM to 16gb of G.Skill Ripjaws , and also have a 7200RPM hard drive installed. I have been running an OC of 135 on the core and 550 on the memory for a long time and it's been completely stable. Temps never go above 82 degrees.

I am considering buying a decent laptop cooler to see if I can bring the temps down a little. What is everyone's opinion on using a laptop cooler for the Alpha?

Other than that, Is there anything at all that I can do to get anymore performance out of this thing? Any tweaks I can do to the processor or RAM? Anything?

I’m hoping for some guidance. I have had an a i7 r2 alpha for about a year now and I have decided to water cool it. I modified the original case to get better airflow (pics attached) which worked out very well but after recently doing another loop I would like to do something with the alpha. I am gonna but it in a new case, a cooler master q300l. I am also adding a full sized gpu which will also be in the loop. I have planned out most of the mods and fabrication to get everything to fit. What I am in sure about are the cpu and integrated gpu blocks. Has any one else attempted water cooling an alpha? If so, what blocks should fit the mb? Also, will the integrated gpu be on or produce any heat while using an external gpu? I appreciate any help.

What do you think, rather than buy a egpu kit (GPU, adapter, psu), I migrate the CPU, SSD, ram from Alpha R1 to a New Motherboard, plus a GPU And cooler? In long term, wouldn't It more cost effective than buying an egpu kit? As long as you could buy a lga 1150 Motherboard 32 GB ram instead 16 gb And put a stronger 4gen CPU with more tdp, for example?

Definitely late to the party. However as HTPC's, these are still amazing.

Getting one tomorrow, have an SSD, 16GB RAM and an i7-4770 for it.

Questions, I don't see anyone else running i7-4770's or 4770k's. Granted the K series SKU would be useless but the 4770 should be ok no?

It will be delidded and liquid metal pasted before I put it in. Thermals will not be an issue.

Are these CPU's even supported because of their TDP? I hope so, I'll be doing some microcode modding if that happens to be the case.

Other question is RAM. These older DDR3 systems heavily benefit from much more stable frametimes in games wjth 2133mhz RAM.

If I splurged for some quality sticks, will the BIOS/UEFI allow this? Would XTU allow it if not?

Appreciate anyone reading and responding to this.

Cheers!
