    I sent you a message. I think you have to click on the user name and then ''start conversation'' to send a message.

    Hello everyone! Is anybody know: gtx 460m fully compatible with Clevo P170HM3 motherboard? I plan to change the fried HD6990m video card to any less powerful.

    I can say my p170Hm with 680m is a beast. Love the machine and quite the workhorse with the 4Gb VPU ram.
    And yes my m17x r2 alienware is also running well (typing this message on it).

    Both are great laptops.
    Touch wood :)

    Hi guys, just thought i would give you an update, my Clevo 7970m is faring well so far, so fingers crossed it will continue to do so. Playing BF4 doesn't get the temps above 80 degrees so it's cool (both literally and figuratively) :)
    I am after a CPU upgrade now, and as far as I know the best CPU my good old laptop will take is this:

    Intel i7-2960XM Extreme Processor (8M Cache, up to 3.70Ghz) - SR02F

    Is this the best or have I not looked hard enough?

    Thanks

    Thanks, there is one for £185 on EBay and I am just thinking if this kind of expenditure will be worth the gain in performance? I checked benchmarks and it's not like it's twice as good:) what do you think?
