    Welcome to *Part 2* of the Alienware M18x Benchmark thread here on NBR.
    Here you can discuss benchmark results, tips, settings and of course post your results for the community to see...

    A word of caution concerning benchmarking...
    While benchmarking / number chasing can be quite a bit of fun, please be aware that benchmarking your system is pushing your system to its limits. It can and will stress your components. Do so at your own risk - nobody is responsible for this but you.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    There are several apps which can be used to benchmark your system. Following is a short list of some which are typically used. There are others and the core benchmarking members will have plenty of suggestions - so ask away.

    FutureMark Benchmark Apps

    Component Benchmark Tools

    Game Benchmark Tools & Others

    Posting Benchmark Results and Images
    Finally, as with all threads here on NBR, please remember the forum rules when posting.

    Any images over 500x500 must be resized. Images embedded within posts which are over 500x500 will be removed. Repeat offenders will receive infractions. There is no reason you cannot take a moment to resize or use thumbnail previews. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation with this.

    Have fun!

    Have fun folks and lets see how far you can push the M18x! :D

    Requirements:Your screen shot must have the following. No exceptions.CPUZX3 (Meaning - cpu/memory/mainboard)GPUZX1 (Meaning just showing your gpu clocks)And when posting a screen shot of the screen.(vantage/3dmark06 and others) Do not just leave all the information covered up. Scores will be rejected.The correct way to post:



    Also this is a pure speed benching list. So whatever you can do to make your system go faster...is open game!Also everyone should use thumbnails or the spoiler command.



    The overall over clocking champion is the person who has the most points (or points per class - 5 being best and 1 being the lowest) over all.Example:



    User: Mr. Nbr1st place (nvidia card)vantage = 52nd place (nvidia card)3dmark06 = 43rd place (amd card)3dmark11 = 31st place cpuz extreme = 52nd place wprime 1.55 non extreme = 4Total=21



    This helps mix it up a bit. :)What will have you with high points is benching everything. That's only if your going for king of all M18XR1/R2's. If not, don't worry...:)So, just because I have records in 5 classes, will not give me the over all king of M18XR1/R2....I would need to have the highest score when the dust settles.So at the end of the day...It's the dedicated bencher who will come out on top....:) Extreme cpu's will help in 3d benching, but the cpu classes are split. So a guy could potentially beat out Mr. Nbr because he placed first in the non extreme class.(all 6 test for a total of 30 points)World Wide Record Holder means this person holds this over everyone on the planet.(including 3dmark.com & hwbot.org Mobile class benching only.)



    All ideas and suggestions are welcome here.PS. We want this to be fun! So no score bashing:Examples of this are:You used and AC and i didn'tYou used dry ice and i didn'tYou left your laptop outside in zero degree weather and i didn'tYou used a freezer and i didn'tYou used a cooling pad and i didn'tMy score is stock and i don't care about benching. (Unless your just testing your system. :))

    Have fun guys... If you have any suggestions for the benchmark app list I posted above, feel free to shoot me a PM and we'll look at revising it. The list has been (for the most part), carried over since the M17xR2.

    Enjoy the dry ice rigs... ;) (LOL?)

    Waiting on my new system. Which should be here later today. Which was pretty darn fast! Ordered on the dec 9th. And it's already here in California. Now that's service!

    Going to try and go off of just my new system this round. And Xeneize should be posting later today. Along with everyone else..:)

    Your scores are coming along nicely though.

    Oh, and how the hell did Johnksss get his clock speed to 4.7GHz????? :O Dry ice?

    I might have to dig the old Prometia out of the cupboard!!
