    Eurocom Sky X9E3 (GTX 1080 SLI)

    I love SLI and always have. I'm about 75-85% overclocker/bencher and 15-25% gamer. I derive more personal pleasure from overclocked benching than I do playing game, and single GPU machines are boring to me. When I do play games, it's not hard to tweak the SLI profiles and end up with something...

    I am not sure what that means.

    Eurocom Sky X9E3 (GTX 1080 SLI)

    That is actually available, it just wasn't how the review unit is configured. I have a P870DM3 (same machine, but last year's model) with 1440p 120Hz G-Sync panel. Nah, Clevo has had laptops with desktop CPUs for a long time. I even had one (Eurocom Panther / Clevo P570WM) with 4960X overclocked...

    Eurocom Announces Sky X9E VR-Ready Gaming Notebook

    Thank you. No, not at all. I applied CLU to the die, then held the IHS in place while I clamped it back down again. I then applied CLU to the IHS and heat sink copper plate. It was very simple to do. I did not glue the IHS back onto the CPU PCB with silicon as some folks have. The only thing...

    Eurocom Announces Sky X9E VR-Ready Gaming Notebook

    Temps are awesome with the CPU delidded and Liquid Ultra on the die and IHS. And it overclocks like a bat out of hades with the modded firmware. Pretty sweet for single GPU. http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/10733766 http://www.3dmark.com/fs/7059595 http://www.3dmark.com/3dmv/5385013 Here's a...

    NVIDIA Disables GeForce GTX 900M Mobile GPU Overclocking with Driver Update

    The anti-laptop-overclocking trolls are simply misinformed and out of touch with technology, or they wasted money on a cheap machine that wasn't engineered to be awesome and have no valid frame of reference to draw from. In the spirit of sarcasm, here is another great example of why "notebooks...

    NVIDIA Disables GeForce GTX 900M Mobile GPU Overclocking with Driver Update

    I am amazed at the magnitude of ignorance that is so prevalent among desktop owners. I never dreamed the ignorance would be so rampant. Look what I found digging through my old emails, LOL. If NVIDIA doesn't reverse their ludicrous and unfounded position on MXM overclocking, we may get to have...

    NVIDIA Disables GeForce GTX 900M Mobile GPU Overclocking with Driver Update

    I had an HP with the NVIDIA defect. That was quite some time ago. Around 2009 or 2010 if I recall correctly. We got a "free" turd Compaq CQ $300 laptop as a replacement for my wife's $900 laptop in that joke of a Class Action "settlement" award. NVIDIA has not fabricated any technical excuses...

    NVIDIA Disables GeForce GTX 900M Mobile GPU Overclocking with Driver Update

    NVIDIA's just being stupid. Let's not drag Intel and AMD into the discussion in order to distract us from the matter at hand. And, to set the records straight... mobile Intel CPUs DO OVERCLOCK... Extremely well (pun intended). Only the uninformed folks that live in their own little isolated...

    NVIDIA Disables GeForce GTX 900M Mobile GPU Overclocking with Driver Update

    Wow, they should have told me this a long time ago, ha ha! No reason not to overclock a decent laptop for benching... been doing it for years now without consequence. No need to overclock for simple gameplay, but life would be far too boring if all there was to do was play games. If you cut...

    NVIDIA Disables GeForce GTX 900M Mobile GPU Overclocking with Driver Update

    NVIDIA sucks because of their haughty attitude. They've really overstepped their boundaries this time. It's none of their damned business if we choose to overclock our GPUs. That they've taken the illegal liberty of putting anti-overclocking malware in their latest drivers shows how dishonorable...

    NVIDIA Disables GeForce GTX 900M Mobile GPU Overclocking with Driver Update

    If you feel the need to overclock, you should have spent the money on a real laptop and stopped buying cheap garbage laptops with second rate CPU and GPU and poor cooling systems. People that think only desktops are decent overclocking machines are flat-out ignorant and don't have a clue what...

    NVIDIA Disables GeForce GTX 900M Mobile GPU Overclocking with Driver Update

    Man, some of the ignorant comments by people that know absolutely nothing about how outstanding the right kind of laptop overclocks the CPU and GPU is amazing to me. I had no idea there were this many uninformed morons out there. Pay attention... visit HWBOT.org a little more often. Comments to...

    No New GPUs from AMD for the Bulk of 2013

    That would be a horrible thing for consumers. Having them as bitter enemies and tearing at one another's jugulars is exactly what we need. Competition is what makes both of their products get better and better. If they were to merge we would get whatever they want us to have... and nothing more...

    No New GPUs from AMD for the Bulk of 2013

    Can we expect anything less from a generation of people that graduate from high school and college, but they can barely read, write or spell? When the ignorant are allowed to breed, and make big decisions that affect the intelligent, all kinds of bad things can happen, LOL. Seriously...

    No New GPUs from AMD for the Bulk of 2013

    AMD making consistently excellent drivers over the course of this year would be a better use of their time than making a new GPU. The 13.X Catalysts are a major improvement over the previous, but it took them way too long to release good quality drivers for the 7XXX series.

    No New GPUs from AMD for the Bulk of 2013

    I went through 4 7970M and had too many functionality problems with them. The AMD mobile GPU is not nearly as good and stable a product as the desktop 7970. Finally got fed up and traded them for a pair of GTX 680M and couldn't be happier. Although, I do wish they had the same compute...

    No New GPUs from AMD for the Bulk of 2013

    I agree, and the additional features, not to mention better driver support, with NVIDIA more than make up for that. In the mobile segment, 680M pretty much owns 7970M in everything other than compute function.

    No New GPUs from AMD for the Bulk of 2013

    They are real close overall in terms of FPS. But, you're comparing the GHz Edition, which packs a greater punch than the average 7970.

    AMD 7970M Support

    Same issue with build 0.6.2

    New BIOS editor software published

    That vBIOS patcher works great for my 7970M setup.

    Asetek Demonstrates Liquid Cooling For Laptop And All-In-One PCs

    Hmm. I overclock my M18x CPU and GPU at those speeds all the time without using any special cooling. The Alienware factory cooling system is excellent. So, now I am suspicious about the effectiveness of the Asetek liquid cooling system. I would have expected them to overclock much higher than...
