    Ahh ok cool that explains it, so maybe best strategy is to just turn off Throttlestop and let the chip do it's thing ? What do you think ?

    It will boost within the power limits. In same way as power limited BGA chips. Let it be as is. Max out possible undervolt while running at max capped power (lower power consumption within power cap/budget means higher clock speed). Check if undervolt stick while it's in idle speed as well. ThrottleStop is a nice tool for tweaking and everydays usage.

    Mysterious Staining on M17 in Lunar White | Today
    Hey guys, has anyone with the Lunar White chasis experienced strange staining that they can't seem to get off? I think the shadowy looking stains where my wrist goes are possibly from a black light jacket I wear a lot? Or perhaps it's the finish wearing off? Despite only having the computer for a week...

    And I have no idea what's going on, on the front of it. Any suggestions on what to try and lift it off with? I've tried a little rubbing alcohol on a paper towel and got nada. Too afraid to try much else without some insight. Thanks!

    Sure some have issues - not everyone though right? Had mine since November not a problem with any of the finish and I'm watching it. Also, Dell will replace the parts... but for people concerned.... go black.

    From what I remember, Dell is one of the very few that use only recycled plastic in their products. Could be the staining (color transformation) problems come from this. Seee... Variance in quality due the blend. But don't count on that this type parts will be replaced for everyone. I still remember the 180W psu/Tripod HS flaws. Not all got it replaced. And some opted only for 1 year warranty (spent all money on the machine and hoped for the best). _The staining can happen after one week or +12 months. None know for sure. Yeah, go black.

    New Alienware runs at 14fps, Dell refuses to support

    Rang premium service..... They said they are more hardware focused and the recovery USB stick is a windows/ software issue.
    No reports of not creating like I'm having.
    Wanted to remote in but held off.
    Said they have recovery os if required....
    Also best of to maxicm reflex image an image.
    2TB portable external to do that?

    Had a radioshack TRS80. Had to buy an expansion chassis to put 16 K of ram. Not a mistake. It was the size of a case.

    Floppys where 400. In 1979...

    Should, I put my system and macrim restore image all on the same 64GB usb so that I can just restore and reload my system all in one go if needed. It runs right off the drive.

    The hours & dollars I spent downloading Amiga softs, those were the days.

    Had an Amiga 500. My brother had a 1000. Had every cinamaware game...plus all the early EA games.



    Archon. Weeks lost to Archon...

    I will go to my grave holding that system up as the best ever. True multitasking...awesome sound....

    I was saving for a video toaster and then I discovered....women. And guitars....
