    Hi everyone,

    What the best/top CPU upgrade M17X R4 I can buy.

    I'm currently on 17 3940xm [​IMG]


    Or

    Is it best just to overclock my current CPU in the bios?

    Will that help to gain more performance?


    Thanks

    That is the best CPU for your system, definitely try overclocking it as you will gain quite a bit more performance.

    Cheers pal

    Is there a guide on how to do that within the bios, I know you can overlook CP in the bios to level 1 2 3?

    Never done overclock on alienware before so I'm not to sure the best way here .


    Any help is much appreciated

    Better improve your cooling first, OC brings much excess heat with it ;)

    Use Grizzly Conductonaut Liquid metal. Google it. Or search within this forum.
