Re: 17 R1, Windows 10, GPU fan not working

Mine is the R2 while yours was called the R3 in some parts of the world. My board is currently in with a repair guy getting a new Sata connector soldered on. I can only ever find replacement boards for $300-400 and if mine can't be fixed then I won't bother with a new board. I'll put my 1070 into a 17.

But what about your MX CPU??? The mobile extremes were always the best.

Re: 17 R1, Windows 10, GPU fan not working

What would I do with it? I'd probably sell it. If the guy can't fix my sata connector then I can either continue to just use the mSata slot or I will sell all the parts individually.

Re: 17 R1, Windows 10, GPU fan not working

That guys price is crazy! The 18 I bought cost me $550AUD which is about $350USD. It had one faulty M290X but the primary card was working fine.

Re: 17 R1, Windows 10, GPU fan not working

I've owned an 18 before, just earlier this year. It was nice but I prefer the M18x, mainly for the looks. The 3rd gen processors overclock really well and are on par with the 4th gen.
