    the HyperX DDR3 CL12 2133mhz works at full speed on M17xr4 i7 3840qm ?

    Which is the fastest ssd mSata for R4 ? Works on sata II or III ?

    I'm pretty sure the mSATA port runs at SATA II so any SATA II or III card would be fine, most likely limited by the bus speed.

    This is after over volting my 7970m, I can't push the core or memory any further as it will freeze up.
    So you could say this is as far as I go on a voltage of 1.075, the result aren't so bad.
    Could have gotten some extra points if my CPU was running at 3.9GHz+ (OC'd to 40,39,38,38).
    This is about 2000+ points in 3D Mark compared to the original stock drivers I had gotten in May.

    Core: 1000 MHz
    Memory: 1670 MHz
    3D Mark 11 P score: 7673

    AMD Radeon HD 7970M video card benchmark result - Intel Core i7-3720QM Processor,Alienware M17xR4 score: P7673 3DMarks

    Max Temp on GPU 84c under FurMark stress test.

    have u tried lowering the memory clock to stock, then pushing the core as far as it can possibly go and then check for the max. possible memory clock at that OCed core clock?

    core OC brings much more of a perf. boost than mem OC, so i would always OC the core first without touching the mem and only then try the mem. otherwise the heat generated from the present mem OC will artificially limit the core OC ability!

    cheers

    Yeah I tried some settings on stock voltage as well as on 1.075v, but my core starts to have an heart attack the moment I go above 1000.
    I tried 1005,1010,1020, 1050, 1100 they all fail, I don't have a laptop cooler at the moment so that's my only assumption.
