awsome site by the way
Nice reviews on everyting, helped me out alot!!
Like this site (not the colour when typen this as balck on blue, difficult to read with my old eyes. LOL.
I noted the "forum" tab has been deleated ater I had become a "Mitglied" which I thought was necessary. Hope that didn't create a problem.
I just removed it because we weren't using it. We actually still use the forums on Alienware Arena so there was really no need for a forum here. It was just an idea I was toying with.
I see what you mean about the black on Blue...my eyes don't like it either. I'll see what I can do.
Are you a member on Alienware Arena? If not you should join.
Thanks for the reply. Did not know about Alienware Arean. Probably due ot not (yet) being a gamer. Never played a game in my live LOL. Just wanted a fast PC, which got me to my areaa 51 ALX (see my specs in my profile on the Dell/Alienware forum unser Spamfighter.
However, not having played a game and not knowing anything about any of those, doesn't mean I am not interested.
Will study that site for more info.
There is lots of good info on this site, so why isn't it being used?
Are you in Germany by any chance (given the MITGLIEDER issue)?
Glad you are looking into the colour issue, Noted a lot of typos in my previous post, due to not being able to read my test when typing. LOL
I am in Louisiana in the U.S.
The forums on Alienware Arena have a lot going on. There are a lot of different discussions from hardware to games to general fun topics. You really should check it out. My name there is the same as here.
It's not that the site isn't being used really, It's just not that old. And I really designed it for reference for Alienware Arena. I found myself answering questions and typing the same answers over and over again. So I thought I would do this site and just link people to the pages. It has cut down on how much I have to repeat.
Well I am working on it. Custom HTML is something I am still learning, but I am getting there. I had picked a lighter color, but I am partial to Orange. And I kind of like the contrast.
It's really bright though and it doesn't really match the site...but I do like the contrast. I'll wait and see what you think about it first.
You did a lot of good work. But I agree in the long run you will be ahead, not only in shorter answers but also in less requests for help as people get to knew this site and may check there first before posting.
This colour is great as black on orange is readable as will as the blue on black. The latter has not as much contrast but o.k. Thanks a lot.
Noted some names are yellow, others blue and your background differs from other posters
And I envy your location, It's much warmer than Ontario, Canada. LOL.
The Purple names are links that have not been clicked on yet. If the name is yellow it is a link that has already been clicked on. The one's that are blue have no link. When you fill out your comment here on the "Website" portion of your information, if you give a link, it links it to your name.
My posts are Orange because I would be the site's "Administrator". It really doesn't even give me a choice but to have my posts a different color. I would have to use a different name.
It is much warmer here I'm sure. It is currently 50*f right now. that's not too bad. Most years down here I wind up wearing shorts in December.
Awesome website man! keep the updates comin!
Thanks Nikita. Let me know if you need anything or have any questions.
Being a fan of Halloween...love the black and orange! Not too shabby of a site. ha ha Seriously this site is boss!
Haha..thanks man. I like it too. I am going to add a forum. I had one and took it down, but It will be a great way to keep up with my friends from Alienware Arena. I get an E-Mail sent to my phone when someone comments here, so I will be able to respond pretty quick.
Forum = Great Idea
Think you should really do it man! Will talk to you tonite on steam.
Alright man. I'll get the forum up tonight sometime. Talk to you later Chris.

It's only for a month man. We are definitely open to some Zombie killing man.
Wanted to say I love you and we will miss ya on AA!!
The Forum page is back up.
The good, the bad, and the ugly...
The good...finally got headset so we will need to get that set up
The bad...had to watch the national championship game, which I feel asleep at halftime
The ugly...LSU didnt even try to play last night. Worse game ever!
Hahaha... That's funny man. Glad you got some headphones. I am leaving out for work right now, but I will hook up with you this evening so we can get you set up. I put the Forum back up too :o)
Had fun playing L4D2 tonight. Feel free to visit the forum page :o)
Yo diesel what did you do!!!!! lolol. any ways i guess you read my topic so what do you think
Hey diesel and if you guys want I mad a section on our site in hte forums called alienware community you guys are more than welcome to use it
I will go and check it out man.
I just got in an argument. It happens. I won't be gone long brother. What you wrote is 100% true man. I have been reading a lot on this and just finished reading a review with dual 7970s in crossfire that absolutely smokes the 590 and the 6990 on an X58 motherboard with an i7 920 processor. It's very good news that all the cards will be backwards compatible. PCIe 2.0 and 2.1 slots never really rezached their full potential anyway, and with almost no difference no matter which slot you use then there is no sense in getting on the new platform man. Honestly it's a waste of money. The 2600K is where it's at no doubt. If you bring any of this up in the forums, don't hesitate to say I agree with you 100%.
As far as the GPU thread goes, you can add a 6950 with a 6990 and you can add a 6970 with a 6990. But you may cross the PSU limit. Two 580s do pass the PSU limit...they are power hogs man. You have to have at least a 1000w PSU to run dual 580s. I personally think a single 6990, or a 7970 now and one later would be the way to go. I would choose one of those two. Of course two 7970s will cost over $1000.
OK, thanks yea his is a 875 just like mine, so you say 1 6990 and 1 6970 might be to much for the 875? I think he is leaning more towards the 7970 anyways , he was trying to figure out what to do with the 6970 and just read it would work with the 6990 but never checked into the PSU ordeal.
Yeah the extra 6970 would probably push past the limits. It would default to 6950 clocks, but that would essentially be running as a tri crossfire 6950 setup and it's too much for 875w. The 7970 will be a great choice anyway. In a years time if he can add a second the performance will be Godly!
Actually I cannot remember if the 6990 is dual 6950 chips or dual 6970 chips. Either way it would essentially be tri crossfire which is too much. Too lazy to look it up atm...haha.
Thanks for your efforts, DieselSS!
I read everything (I think ; ) and bookmarked this site.
I'm glad you stopped by. I will be revamping the Desktop pages shortly and updating the GPU rivers as soon as I get a chance.
Hey DieselSS take a look at the site www.oneoptiongaming.com I just redid some coding and using vBulletin now. Do not login you have to just hit login without typing a username and then hit request new password. I intergrated everything over but could not intergrate the passwords sorry :(
When are you going to update the Processor & MB with the Aurora R4? I like that part of the page. Will come in handy down the road when I upgrade my R4! :)
He will be updated it shortly I believe.....(sorry DieselSS I feel somewhat responsible for a new headache your about to have)
I look forward to it as well, it will be VERY handy.
Haha...this is something I have been neglecting anyway. I just finished (roughly finished) one page. If you go to the Gaphics Cards for the Aurora R1 you will see what I am about to do with all of those pages.
I laid out the format I want and I finished the HD 5000 series page (still have to add TDP values). I will start working on the others tomorrow.
@MisterNivek...As soon as I finish updating all the graphics pages and drivers I will add the R4 and the X51.
Stay Tuned :)
I would be a great idea to have a list of graphic cards that will work with the Aruora R3
Would like to know if i7-3770k will work with Alienware R3 and A06 Bios. As it is intel Board P67, intel says yes with Bios 77.
Additionally I would like to know which Nvidia will possible. Currently I have GTX-460 inside.
Many thanks for sharing your knowledge
What type of screw driver used to open the back cover?
Why does Alienware M14x laptop makes a hell of fan noise, i like the look but not the noise, is it design fault? Other laptops at my office run smoothly with same apps running. Recently updated BIOS with help of dell support, not helping. They say its good that fan is running that makes it cool the computer. i say bullshit answer! Crap laptop.
Yus instald Unofficial AW fan control in order to control my fan speed. "http://alienwareusersupport.weebly.com/unofficial-aw-fan-control.html"
I have HP Pavilion NB fdv9274eu.
I followed the instructions and at the Sensor Status I do not have an icon with a fan.
Why? help please
