    Sorry it wasn't my intent to sound quite so mean. I was just trying to say that I think many seem to loose sight of "Yes, it works quite well" and obsess over the last RPM, FPS or 5 minutes of battery life.

    Do NOT update to these drivers if you have no problems with your m11x and want it to remain nearly silent.

    For some reason my fans kick in a lot more often and they stay on and never go off. It's not annoying for short use, but more than 30 minutes and it will ruin your concentration. Not even running any games.

    After putting it to sleep and coming back, the fans went silent again, so there's that.

    I never learn my lesson... "If it's working, don't mess with it..."

    Oh, by the way, any way to go back to A01? Would that work?

    I can now safely O/C to 166Mhz FSB with turboboost on without a single BSOD after 72hrs. Although I still haven't been able get rid of this damn screen freeze upon wake up from sleep - reinstalled intel and Nvidia drivers without any luck :-/

    The fans are way louder.
    In all honesty, I hope Alienware sets them back by just a bit...

    Looks like I am going to continue using the original A01 Bios that came with my system and sticking with the 3RVX software to have the volume OSD until another revision of the Bios comes out. I really treasure the almost silent operation on the m11x during normal use(not gaming), and would hate to lose it.

    I find that my bootup time is longer with the new OSD A04

    And also the fan kicks in more frequently with the BIOS A03 installed

    I'm not sure how the OSD application could increase the boot time in any noticeable way.
