    Left4Dead might be too old, better try Crysis 2, Duke Nukem Forever or Aion at max settings.

    Hi guys. I've had my 4830tg for months now and i'm loving it. now i want to upgrade my RAM. right now i'm at 3GB. may i ask what specific kind of ram i should purchase and what the optimal capacity is? should i max everything at 8gb or would it be too much?

    Well they replaced the battery, but that's it. They didn't say if it was panasonic or sanyo.

    Now I get to take it apart and redo the thermal paste/heatsink to make sure that isn't the problem. I paid someone to do the thermal paste last time, any tips on doing it? Better to add too much or too little?

    So does these temp fluctuations look like thermal pasting done poorly to you?

    If not what else could cause this? It never used to happen (even after repasting for the first week). Nothing changed that I know of, maybe the thermal paste cured in a less than optimal form or something.

    I think you should.
    6gb should be fine, but you'll cut the price by only 10e maybe, so it's worth to see further and go for 8gb.

    Hi, I own Acer Aspire 3830TG and I love it too:)
    I previously owned 5830tg but due to frequent traveling, I traded 5830tg for LENOVO e420(2x) but this lenovo e420 is very bad notebook(bad design, jarring and bad keyboard;first piece I have complained because of a bad keyboard and second piece weird clicked and had a creaky chassis) so I change lenovo for ASUS U41SV(but this has horrible performance only i3 but with 540m, and heavier than I thought) so I again change for 3830tg and now I am happy.
    My specification now are: i5-2410m, 8GB DDR3 Samsung (with four jedec speed), WB Black 750GB,..
    I bought better hdd, better wifi(intel with wifi and wifimax), and second ram and I am very happy man too:D

    may i know the frequency of the ddr3 ram you purchased? stores in here keep telling me that they don't have the ram for my laptop, saying that mine is 1066 and they only have 1333.

    may i ask how you have 2 hds with the laptop?
    there's no caddy space, so what's the optimal solution to running a ssd+hd?
