    I use artist vinyl paint brushes to clean my laptop keyboard

    Works wonders when you want to get dust,hair, etc off your laptop

    In all seriousness you're better off trying to get an x9100 instead of the qx9300 for your M17. You may not suffer stuttering now, but if you do once you put the qx9300 in you'll regret it for sure.

    @Marvie my m17 was stable with AW bios and is stable with moo's bios i can overclock my q9000 to 2.3 and keep it stuter free with fine tuning of the voltage so i'm preatty sure i can fit a QX9300 in it and find a way to keep it stable if i don't i'll just sell it back
    also i don't wan to downgrade to a dual core no mather how fast it is cause i'm a heavy multitasker and 2 cores prob won't keep up

    @scook thanks

    looking to do some work on my m17:
    first thing is a memory upgrade

    next is a new lcd (mine was cracked by some idiot)

    and finally I want to possibly upgrade the hard drive setup adding another drive for raid. Possible? Cost?

    I think all of that is possivle and you will find for all of this/that (sry my english xD) a guid here :)

    I for me self added a second HDD and created a Raid setup ... it's quite easy ...

    The other two things you want to do are not that hard to do but it's still "some work" and you should be a bit used to use (my english again ;) ) a screwdriver.

    so far ;) good luck :p

    Hey, would the new Zalman NC2500 be a good cooler for the M17? I'd go for the Cryo LX but in the UK I can't really find it.

    Or would the Antec 200 be better?

    EDIT: Rather, would the Zalman NC3000 be a good cooler? Has a 220mm fan apparently.
