By Dirk Oliviers

Gateway 8550GB Upgrade

This is what MXM-Upgrade is all about: allowing end users to upgrade their notebook and allowing perfectly good notebooks to run the latest games beyond their intended life cycle. Gary upgraded his x700 to a x1900!

We hope other Gateway MXM platforms can benefit from the same upgrade.

Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo M 3438 upgrade.

Making the jump from an aging 6800 to a x1800. Not a walk in the park and not cheap by any means, this brings the FSC equivalent of the Alienware m5700 right back where it belongs: in front of the pack.

Shuttle x100 upgraded to x1800

By Paul B. Philipp

One of the few upgrades that actually was easier than we anticipated.. No heatsink mods, no fan circuit mod, no overheating, no nothing. Only tools required: a small screwdriver.

This is a must read, literally. Whenever we sell a card, we will assume the buyer has read and understands these guidelines. It contains both general guidelines and some specific suggestions.

Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo M 1437/9G upgrade.

Going from a 6600 or x700 to a 6800, this boosts performance quite a bit!

Medion 95257/Arima 810

Again, huge performance gain by going from a 6600 to a 6800. Medion is a brand often found in discount stores in Europe (Aldi,...) but apparently they get their hardware from Arima. John also tried a 7900GS, but apparently that did not work out.

If you are part of our beta-tester program, you can take some pointers here. This is exactly the kind of tutorial we expect from you!
