    Hey I have a question for those who mod their Clevo M570U. I got 2 GB of OCZ DDR2-667 and working with video, I'm thinking I would like to have 3 GB. Putting warranty issues aside, just talking the "how to's," what would I have to do to put another stick of Ram in there? And can I get a pic of what it looks like? Thanks!

    Here is a LINK to a article with images of the M570U. There is a good shot of the RAM modules.

    Fantastic choice, and that's the most powerful M570U I have seen anyone buy. 3GB of RAM and a Core 2 Duo T7600 - expensive stuff.

    It's a good price though, so congrats on getting a good deal and getting an even better laptop.

    wow, nice rig.... you opted to get some things that most dont get:
    - custom paint job
    - more than 2gigs of RAM
    - 2nd harddrive (w/ RAID)

    The only thing that I would suggest before its too late, and if you can afford it, try and max out the memory at 4 gigs (2 x 2048mb DDR2) because the memory will get dual channeled with 2 of the same sticks (that means more performance) and you would not have to worry about memory upgrades in the future (since Windows Vista will give full support to 4 gigs of RAM while current Windows XP only sees 3 gigs).

    Other than that, this is going to be a customized beast.

    Congrats.

    Yea Mickdangerous congrads on your new sysytem, I can relate I have pretty much the same M570U with T7600, 7950 GTX; dual Seagate 100 GB 7200 HDs w/ raid 0 array, 2GB OCz DDR2-667 at just under the price you quoted from killer that you linked me to. And man it is a great system. But to get another stick of ram Killer wanted another couple hundred bucks, so like Gophn pointed out it would be a nice futerproofing addition to have 3-4 GB of DDR2. so i think you made a good move and this notebook should do you justice for a good 3+ years without a glitch.

    yea... i know its pretty expensive....

    but later on your are going have to dump a 1gig stick to be able to stick in another 2gig to get a total of 4gig.

    You system is still going to scream, so the extra 1 gig wont really make a difference but its just "piece of mind" to future-proof.... and Windows Vista.
