    As long you don't use Evga Precision X. I'm not 100% sure if it's safe with Msi Afterburner. Use Nvidia Inspector if you want to OC graphics with Win Crap X:cool:

    See what @Papusan said.

    All laptops with LVDS are vulnerable to this problem.

    mr fox thanks for the reply . i am currently on windows 8.1 pro , i have currently no plans to install windows 10 in my laptop as you said the problem is there .

    my 2nd question was can do i some thing about the fan speeds - i have noticed that raising the laptop like puting some thing which raises the laptop from the bottom causes a decent drop of temps - i will post some temp shots here before like assasin creed all maxed out was hiting 82 - 85c not its like 78c and 75c .

    EVGA Precision X can corrupt the EDID on LVDS panels with any version of Windows.

    Elevation is always good for laptops. It can, as you discovered, make a huge improvement. You can use HWiNFO64 to run Alienware fans full blast or using a custom profile.

    ok played doom before increasing the fan speed - vulkan for some reasns uses only 1 gpu not 2 in sli , maybe after a patch they fix it -
    temps were in the 80c /- max setings i only disabled anti aliasing about constant 45-60 fps some cases went to 65 but was in between 45-60 fps .which i think is damn good for an 880m , wonder what it will give on sli

    DOOM (2016) does already have SLI support (soft support). However, users have also tweaked settings you can see here:

    Thought I'd chime in with a Clevo 8970M I have running in my M18x R1...aside from the nasty sleep bug that I forgot about with AMD cards (anybody ever resolve this???), I got a pretty nice piece of silicon. 79% ASIC, running at stock 1.025V with clocks of 1000/1400, I broke 8000 3dmark11

    I will upload my vBIOS to anybody that wants/needs to run a Clevo 8970M in the M18x R1. Best of all, no nvidia throttle issues.

    Today I tried to overclock more my 970m,

    here stock: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/12115784
    P10275
    GS:10253 PS:11005 CS: 9485


    here overclocked: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/12115664
    P12140
    GS:12635 PS:11208 CS: 10389

    has 72,5% asic, take 1278core/1500mem @ 1,036v

    But when I broke +150 on core and +250 on memory the 3dmark11's test output with: "Time measuring inaccurate.."

    I'm on win7x64, no XTU running or Samsung Rapid mode enabled, overclocked and overvolted via nvidia inspector 1.9.7.8, there are no software or services difference between two runs above, so what I'm missing to take a valid result?

    Thanks
