Alienwarez: Bios released to fix overheating Area-51 m15x rigs

Filed under:

Drop those pitchforks m15x owners and prepare to update, Alienware just released a fix to your overheating (and downclocking) problems. A new beta BIOS — X29b P3A30 — features a few tweaks including the ability to spin-up the fan to a new 5400rpm max. So more noise for more speed; sounds like a reasonable trade-off to us. Unfortunately, the new BIOS is only available if you email for a copy. A general release is expected shortly. Until then, however, it looks like all m15x shipments are on hold. Ouch.
