    Just letting everyone know about an update to the top post: I've got confirmation that the Aspire 5940G is MXM-A equipped, while the Aspire 5745G, 5943G, and 8943G are all not equipped with MXM.

    Any chance of seeing the 5940g confirmation?

    It's in the service guide: the disassembly pics denote an MXM-A slot, and the FRU list shows only one 5940G mainboard, with an MXM-A slot clearly visible.

    New heatsink = much love.

    I might get my X9100 to 3.46ghz :)

    This must be the most and best modified Acer on the forum.

    Have any pics or a build thread?




    BTW just got a 9600m GT working in an Acer 5720 with Win 7 64 (original 8400m GS). Used LV2GO .inf. Driver 258.96

    Runs cooler too...around 50C while 8600m GT was 60+.

    Awesome work, alligatorman! Any chance you've got some pics and screenshots to post?

    There is a thread of me stripping it down, and MXM-upgrade shows me upgrading the GFX.

    As for the rest it's mostly been done such as the second HDD in the optical slot.

    Looks like the 4670 is happy running at 775/1004, 800 core or 1025 mem cause artifacts or lockup. My old 4650 (DDR2) in my 6935g would go to 750mhz core at 1.2v (600mhz ram). However the heatsink cried and the 4650 being a lower binned part was more hungry too.

    The 65% increase in bandwidth and almost 30% core speed increase has helped a lot (I ran the 4650 at 600mhz core 1.0v for heat reasons).

    Firstly, forgot to mention, congrats alligatorman, can be tricky getting those 9600Ms working in slightly older machines.

    So the CPU will go a little higher, 3.33ghz, too much more voltage and things start getting hot again.

    Here is a bench with the 3.33ghz CPU and HD4650 @ 775/1004

    ORB - Compare

    Yay over 8000.

    Also a heads up, the switchable graphics driver for the 8935G is needed, the 5935g driver only supports the 4650.
