    Never owned a 880M. And if I had it from others, I would advice you to talk with the modder of the firmware:)

    Alienware 18 was really a garbage system. The fans were ALWAYS too slow to spin up, the quality of the components was low (I blew 3 motherboards on the Alienware 18, never on the M17x or M18x....let that speak for itself). It wouldn't be a stretch to assume there is a sensor or EC damaged somewhere on the board if the AlienFX is also damaged.

    I agree with you, it seems this is the issue.

    Had this problem with a new motherboard purchased directly from DELL for the 17R1, nothing fixed it except changing the motherboard sadly.

    As for undervolting the GTX880m ... I would personally recommend against it unless you are planning to underclock as well, otherwise it gets very unstable.

    Thank you, I'll replace the motherboard, and see what will happen with the 880m after that.

    I played with GTX880m vBioses for quite sometime trying to optimize this GPU. When you get your machine up and running, send me the stock vbios of one of these babies and we can gradually undervolt them to reach a stable state.
