    I know this isn't really on topic - but I just got my monster machine in Dec 2011 and I'd like to know where I can check the GPU's temps. CCC doesn't seem to be so revealing.

    So, far so good no CTD or shutdowns due to heat problems (BIOS A05) - everything runs smooth and seemingly cool.

    It's installed on all new systems from the factory. You can not get it or add it if it was not installed. Dell outlet refurbished systems do not come with it, unless they are New Build not refurb then they have it installed also. Hope that helps. ;)

    First thing anybody should do is wipe the drool from their mouth. Second open the box. You do not want to get saliva on your m18x.
