    Windows 7 for me the throttle is barely noticeable. It's way better than my 780m

    Has anyone tried undervolting? No news from svl7 on tweaked BIOS? I would easily expect this card to surpass the 10k mark in 3D Mark 11

    Do you think undervolting would do anything? I don't have a power problem but I will give it a try.

    Where did you get your 970M from? I'm planning on upgrading my 7970M to one..

    By undervolting. you might still be able to run stock clocks but ensure no throttling. No idea though, I don't own this card.

    i was talking about upgrading the GTX on my m15x ! I was told

    "
    M15x is capped at 770M
    Max thermal spec for VGA is 75W so even gtx 680m is above this.

    Gtx 770m is probably the best option

    comments and suggestions ?

    You can see that the M15x is very upgradable by reading this thread. The 680m works great in the m15x.

    Best deal now would be a gtx 970m tho......no heat and no weird things at al just mod the inf and youre good too run. You do need a fast CPU tho. The 970m runs best on a 24 core clock but than you would need better CPU cooling.

    What a load of bull lol! The m15x isn't capped at all. Any GPU works in it! Including the latest 970 and 980M!!

    I run a 680M and have OCed to 780M levels at over 1ghz core. It works fine.
