I read on the article it downclocks the GPU right? Will this be a permanent fix or something like the article hints at, like a redesign?
i take it since no one else has posted that this overheating issue is not a widespread failure. the vX30 P3A31 bios is what i'm running and it still down clocks. it was my understanding that the bios was designed to allow the fans to spool faster and thus allow more cooling but at least in my case this wasn't enough.
it also doesn't matter if i run a seperate fan control program as my fans are already spinning as fast as they are allowed, but to no avail.
for anyones curiousity, i sent my 15x back to alienware and i'll post what they come up with to remedy the situation.
