    Seems that this model only received a paper launch and it's getting a little late in the cycle...
    The firmware hosted at the GT75W support site would brick it as it is a copy-paste job for a different mobile chip model.
    Officially it doesn't even support unlocked 6 core (K model) chips or Geforce GPUs and ships with 230W out of the box.
    It clearly isn't targeted at a gaming but pro-sumer audience with deep pockets that are forced to work with Quadros.
    Even if the firmware part is taken care of and bundled with a larger PSU, I wouldn't expect the cooling etc to be up for the upcoming chips...but hey at least one more LGA system to choose from! :)

    C246 Chipset with a Core CPUs. :eek: even in the desktop segment, there is no such compatibility. Again a simple lock at the BIOS level? :mad:
