    For me it was worth it only because it’s an Elitebook and 8760/8770W are my favorites among all laptop workstations.
    980m will run perfectly on your laptop, no matter if Dell or Clevo card.

    Nice! Thanks for letting me know this. The way it sounds, it doesn't seem like it's going to be as hard to install. It shouldn't be much different from installing the GTX 770m.

    Right now I don't have much money, not enough to get a GTX 980m. I was thinking of either getting a GTX 770m again or a GTX 870m. I know people say to stay away from the 8 series altogether.
    The 870m looks appealing though, it shows that it's 37% faster than the GTX 770m on User benchmark. I don't know how accurate user benchmark is. The GTX 870m is $140 on eBay. It's a MSI graphics card.

    I could just get the gtx 770m again but I wasn't too happy with the performance. Even when I had it overclocked it wasn't much faster, maybe I overclocked it wrong. I wasn't able to get it over 941 MHz on the core stable. I was able to go 2400 MHz (Thereabout) on the memory though, It was faster after I overclocked the vram.

    If I decide to get a GTX 770m they're only like $100 on ebay.

    I guess we'll just see how things pan out.

    The 870m has 1344 CUDA cores instead of the 960 of the 770m, and it has a core clock of 941Mhz, so it will be faster than your 770m by a good margin.

    Its worth the 40$ price jump.

    8770W here. After overclocking my G.Skill DDR3L 1600MHz CL9 RAM to 1866MHz CL10 and heavily overclocking M5000M to 1400MHz core and 2700MHz mem, I got this results, which are ok for 7 y.o. laptop, I think...;)

    Nice scores! How did you bump the RAM speed?

    Thanks! I did use Thaiphoon Burner and re-flashed the default modules' SPD with custom one. This alone gave a nice boost of 100-120pts of Physics in 3DM11. Now I have to figure it out which modded CPU fan to use - preferably more than 10CFM, because the GPU on 1400MHz and 1.105V easily hits 88-90C, the CPU- 94-95C. Before the mod with default voltage of 0.987V, the GPU never reached 70C, the CPU- 85-88C.
    I found a fan from M17x r3 on eBay, which is labeled as 10CFM. What do you think, would it work on my 8770W:

    That's a pretty nice bump. So you flashed the altered profile and it booted like that?

    This one is for the newer systems. I think that there was another one from older systems that everyone is using for an upgrade. An M14x main fan or M17x R3/R4 GPU fan, not sure. In any case, I'm looking forward to your results.

    Yes, just altered the SPD, reflashed and everything went smooth - the system recognised immediately the new frequency and timings. Later I tried to bump it to 2133Mhz, but it didn’t boot with two sticks (1T). Eventually it booted with four (2T) , but it was way too unstable and gave me a bunch of BSODs...Even raising the memory’s voltage to 1.5V didn’t help.



    By saying it is from the newer batch, you are assuming that it wouldn’t work or you don’t have enough observations about this particular fan model?

    Did you loosen the rest of the timings as well (11-11-... whatever is standard for 2133)?

    This and also the newer models got slimmer, so the fans might've followed suit. It's not necessarily a bad thing, I mean it still says 10CFM, it's just that I think the older ones can run at higher RPM and get even more air, they just become noisier, it can be true for this one just as well. The best source would be the Alienware guys, it's where I saw it mentioned (getting more RPM). Check there for tried and proven information.

    Yes, I did. I tried even 12,13,14CL with no luck. The sticks simply refused to work at 2133MHz.
    The funniest thing is that they work on Acer V3-571G without problem at 2133MHz 11-11-11 1T (2X16).
    I think it is just a HP with its bios refusing to accept 2133MHz memory bus.
