    Nice! I bought three desktops , the X51 was one of the ones included. Should have them tomorrow night.

    What mouse pad is that?

    It's an RGB 'Alienware' mousepad. It's from a third party and in no way licenced to carry the Alienware logo. I got it from eBay. It wasn't cheap at about $70AU but it's pretty solid and lights up nicely in the dark.

    I found an old picture I took of my M17x R4, M14x R2 & M11x R1. Definitely the best Alienware models. :D

    I have been meaning to make an Alienware Legacy video with my models M17x R1, M17x R2, M18x R1, M18x R2, and my deceased Alienware 18 (where Alienware started getting things wrong). I love my machines and will likely never get rid of them, but I won’t be buying any more Alienware either. I was only trying to get 680M SLI working in M17x R1 before I made the video but I think only single 680M will work

    Do you guys possibly know if there's a thread here around how to get the best out of RAM in the M17X R4?

    I woukd like to know what the M17X R4 is capable of in terms of ocing the RAM.

    DDR3-2133 is as good as you can get, though it’s insanely expensive these days.

    So that would mean put the sticks in, switch to XMP Profile and hope for the best? I am pretty unfamiliar with Typhoon Burner though....

    No need to mess with XMP or Thaiphoon, there are Kingston, G.Skill, and Corsair sticks that are already 2133 sticks that are plug in play

    Yes, no need to mess with things like that. Just the 2133 sticks and that's it.
    (Although, sticking them in and POSTing sometimes may be a bit finicky).

    Personally I have Kingston HyperX 2133 sticks in my M18x R2 they run no problem at the advertised speed.
