    Hei I have 1 questions like this!! Temp on physic test 3dmark 11 is 93-94 celcius
    maybe the temperature is too high for the cpu under phycik test ?. Otherwise, the cpu temp under combined test is 75-76 celcius, and gpu is 74-76.3dmark score is P8312.
    Sorry my bad English (Google translete)

    Can anyone confirm if the 4900MQ is suppose to come with a triple pipe heatsink?

    Also, does anyone else's lid not sit plush when closed? The left side of mine kinda 'wobbles' a little when completely shut.

    I've had some light bleed around the edges. You can call alienware and they'll send a tech to replace the screen. It's quite simple and doesn't take long. I still see some light bleed but a lot less then before. If it's bothering you get it replaced.

    I have the 4900mq and it came with a dual pipe heatsink.
    Personally I didn't have any heat issues, but I do understand if a three pipe heatsink for the cpu exist, it would have been nice. This is my second 17 and they both came with dual pipe.

    Yeah, I read up and an AW rep on these forums confirmed that 4900MQs come with dual pipe. I believe even the MX series comes with dual, could be wrong on that one.
