    lol M18x = m17x :D Basically, Alienware M18x R2 and Aw M17x R4 both got same chipset and configuration (except second card). Hence 18 R2 will work as 17 R4.

    But we can use the powerful OC 3920xm in M18xR2 here is definitely an advantage :biggrin:
    gtx980M one card works in M18xR2 ?
    What's your score Graphics Score in 3dmark11?
    I wonder if the card goes to full speed

    Honestely, it is easy part of 980m upgrade. If you buy upgrade from Eurocom then you will get Disc with drivers on it or you can edit by easily. Check below link for basic info.

    We have concluded that M18x boots up with unlocked BIOS using Clevo vbios with 1 card. Our goal here should be using 2 cards obviously. How do we do that? Whats the next step with trying to make it work? :)

    Oh, I didn't know you had a M18XR2 with 2 980m's. When did you get this?

    As to next step I'll get to that.
