To remove the lid you’ll have to remove the battery and undo two screws.


The smaller two-heatpipe heatsink takes care of CPU cooling, while a three-heatpipe heatsink is placed on top of the GPU. We believe that the CPU could have done with a three-heatpipe setup as well, as it tends to get very hot under high loads.



The Alienware M17x-R4 has room for two 2.5-inch drives. Or sample featured two 256GB Samsung MZ-7PC256D SSD drives.


The 4GB memory modules come from Hynix. They are designated 2RX8 PC3-12800S-11-11-F3 and they are 1600MHz DDR3 modules.
