    Hello,

    I have a question for you guys. Since tomorrow is Black Friday, I will probably be buying an Intel SSD 330 Series 180GB SATA 3, 6 GB/S for my MSI X460DX-006US. It is on sale for $99. I was just wondering if/how I can make it fit in my laptop? I will be using is as my primary drive as it will be replacing my HDD. Also, is the motherboard compatible with SATA 3 drives? For those of you who have already installed SSDs in their laptop, how big of a difference does it make?

    Thanks!

    Not trying to jump an old thread but has anyone experienced the problem of the internal SD card reader not working? I have tried for the life of me to get it to read but cant seem to get it too.

    If you guys like the x460dx then you guys are going to love the new GE40-Dragon Eyes from MSI. It's basically the same design, weight and thickness, adding the red led dragon eyes on the aluminum lid, comes with HD+ 900p resolution matte screen, an i7 Quadcore Haswell cpu, and a Geforce GTX 760m.

    Does anyone know what the most up to date graphics driver that works with Optimus technology is? I made the mistake of putting GeForce Experience on my x460dx and now my laptop is stuck on the 540M even when doing things like word processing. Is there a site or something that I can bookmark to keep up to date with those drivers instead of having to go searching every so often?

    Your best bet is to grab the last official driver from MSI. I ended up giving my x460dx to my brother so I can't check, but I'm pretty sure he's ruining the latest NVIDIA drivers with Optimus, then configuring the driver through the NVIDIA control panel.

    I'm not sure if it supports SATA3, but upgrading to an SSD will change your life. At least it did for me.

    Best money ever spent on any computer I've owned in over 20 years.

    I have had zero problem with gforce experience. Maybe you can try a fresh install?

    Computer111, check the first few posts of this thread. I posted benchmarks when I installed a Crucial M4. It's SATA 3, and made a world of difference. Install instructions should be there, too, if you want to replace the optical drive with a caddy.

    Hi to you all.
    That's my first post, as I need to ask you something, but I've been following this thread for a while now.

    I have this very annoying isuue with my fan waking up, even as I write this post (you know really loud like)
    HWMonitor is showing around 60C (140F) and I'm only using chrome, resource mon and HWM.

    When your fan starts being loud? What temp? I probably gonna clean it up anyway...
    But don't remember fan starting so often but I wasn't measuring temp... And somehow I think chrome is responsible (I open 3 new tabs and fan is taking off)

    thanks for your input

    Have you cleaned the fan/heatsink?
    Additionally, try updating the BIOS and EC as there could have been fan table updates which may help with fan noise.
