    Hi friends! After 9 years the time has come to move to something I little more relevant. In this case a P8 equipped with a 7700K capable of 5ghz across all core under load and a 1080. My tinkering will continue but on this new platform :)

    It has been so much great fun working with the M15x and tinkering with it, pushing it and breaking records with it. It will be missed.

    Sometime in August I will find time to start putting various components up for sale in the marketplace, these will include the following:
    980M 4GB with prema mod (excellent card with much better thermals than the 8GB card)
    W7170M 4GB a good card but sadly not compatible with m15x
    m6100 2GB good little card
    16GB of HyperX ram
    BT/wifi AIO card (with no antennae adaptors)
    940XM
    Dual PSU adaptor box for those that want to push things and go crazy :)

    I wish you guys all the best and let's stay in touch :)

    It is about that time, M15x is a tired machine in 2019 but it has certainly outlived and outperformed any other machine of the same vintage.

    Yeah ditto. Selling off my M15x was a great run.

    On a site in my country a guy is selling new 970Ms from Clevo for around 500Euro if you are interested, but I believe it's a bit overpriced. If you want I can get you a Quadro M4000M for around 220-250Euro. Same/higher performance, better cooling, and so on ;)

    Sounds interesting. Does fan control and display port out work with the m4000m, and is it a drop in or are mods needed? If so, could you send me a PM?

    It's an M, so Maxwell, not Kepler, newer stuff. If you want, there is also K5100M somewhere, but price/performance in highly on the side of M4000M.
