    I've had my N61JQ-X1 since March 19th and I've been 100% satisfied so far. I'm coming from a Sony Vaio FW160E, (C2D P8400/GMA4500/4GB RAM), so this is quite a step up all around, especially after I installed a 500GB Hitatchi Travelstar 7200RPM Drive and 8 gigs of DDR3 1333.

    I lurked here for a bit and learned about MSI Afterburner, and currently run my 5730 at 775MHZ Core and 925MHZ Memory. 125MHZ jump on both, seems kind of high, but I did numerous stress tests and stability tests, as well as monitored the heat output of the GPU, and the highest temp I have seen was 90C after an hour and a half of Mass Effect 2, settings maxxed with 2xAA/8xAF.

    I'm happy.

    if its function has no problem but only has some dll missing warnings, just ignore it. mine works great anyway.

    Notice to interested people about Wlan drivers for N61JQ if thats can help some... I did some test with different WLAN drivers this w.e. :
    8.0.0.238
    8.0.0.305
    9.0.0.163 (MODDED http://forums.laptopvideo2go.com/ind...attach_id=3187 )
    and finally
    9.0.0.173 Atheros & Zidas drivers
    All run stable but 8.0.0.305 and 9.0.0.163 (modded) are the more slowwwwwwwwwww

    The better is so far the 9.0.0.173. Its the more fast, the more stable, and I always have network icon in taskbar...but you have to do manual instal without any reboot... the modded one do not blink my led like announced and very hard to configure for.. nothing !

    After doing some intense graphical work on this system today, I realized that I may need to consider upgrading the memory of this system from 4GB to 8GB.

    Does anyone know what memory works on this system and where I can get it at a good price?

    Not sure if it's already been covered in this thread.

    I can't afford a full 8gb (2x4gb) memory upgrade.

    Is it possible to upgrade to 6gb? (1x2gb + 1x4gb)?

    Any brand of DDR3 1066/1333 SODIMM 204 pin works.

    Thanks. My laptop came with 4GB of 1066. Two questions I have,

    1) How many memory slots does this system have? I think 2 but using ram reporting programs it shows the availability of 4.

    2) If I was replacing all the RAM I have in here (2x2GB 1066), should I get 1066 or 1333?

    Just in case anyone is wondering, this card can be overclocked a lot from what I can tell so far, currently running 800/925 over stock 650/800, but I really don't see a ton of improvement, at least I don't think it's a ton of improvement. Playing Stalker CoP at native res, 2xAA, 4xAF, maximum settings on enhanced dynamic lighting I see the lowest FPS using FRAPS drop to 41 during a 2 hour gaming session, with the highest reported heat at 89C. The game is still playable on normal clock rates, but not as buttery smooth as with the overlclock.

    Also, what is too high of a temp for this GPU? Based on what I know of mobile gpu overclocking, which isn't a ton, I think 89C is fine. Any thoughts?
