    You MAY be able to run 2x8GB @ 1600, but I don't know. There may be some other posts on here about that. Running 4x4GB @ 1600 is not possible, though. The speed will be clocked back to 1333 if you...

    Only factory-supplied setup, yes. If you're willing to spend $25 on the item I linked above then you can easily do HDMI -> DVI and USB -> digital-out.

    I never had a gaming laptop before this G74, everything else had been "business-class" or a Mac, and the Mac has that combo jack that does both analog or digital. That's the only one that had a...

    Doesn't seem like you actually read the results of putting 32GB worth of memory in the G74. It's a shame, because you're wrong.

    The vents are under the hinge on the G74, it doesn't pull any air from the keyboard area. With the lid closed you'll see a gap between the display and the hinge on the top of the laptop near the...

    The G74 actually pulls air in from vents near the display hinge on the top side, the bottom is completely vent-free so it won't matter what surface the laptop is on as long as the vents in the rear...

    It's the same driver for both HDDs, so it doesn't make much sense that the basic disk driver would have a problem that only shows up with one disk. Based on the Event Viewer logs, it really just...

    Neither of my Seagate drives click, however the factory 640GB WD drive does click every couple of minutes or so, not sure why. Hasn't failed yet but I only use it infrequently as an external drive.

    Hmmm, IMO 109F and even 125F aren't particularly hot for a GPU under load. You sure it wasn't reporting in C? The GTX560m is good for 80-90 degrees C, which is 175F-195F. Doesn't sound like...

    Not sure how it would be an Intel thing limiting Windows to 2.7GHz while Linux gets the full boost? The CPU doesn't know or care what OS is running. :)

    I'm running SD28 on mine, it works fine.

    Keep in mind this is firmware for the HDD itself, not drivers for Windows. Are you having issues with your HDD?
