    It's just HyperX Impact 3200 32GB. The part ID my HX starts the same way: KXH2666 ..

    Sure, but Kingston make other lines of modules, which is what made me curious if that's actually HyperX or some other CL20 3200 module.

    Hello everyone.

    If someone owns a Dell Alienware Area 51m R2 with a 10th-gen Intel CPU, can it be upgraded with an 11th-gen Intel CPU that is coming out soon?? What have you heard?

    Thanks in advance!

    So far I've heard people can't even upgrade from 9700/10700 to 9900K/10900K. Sample size one, so I hope I'm wrong.

    Livi,

    Did you ever receive yours? I just ordered mine on the 22nd. I went for the FHD 360hz screen. Kind of wish I would have chosen the 4k. I don't think there is a way to change it now?

    My first Area 51, so curious as to how long it takes to get them in. I sure hope it isn't the full month or so haha. I'm inpatient.

    hello! i have received it finnaly . took around 3 weeks to arrive!
    so far i like it
    i didnt want 4k as it will struggle at 4k anyway due to temps!.....and i like to play some older games aswell....and to get 360fps in games like shadow of the tomb raider is sweet!
    i will delid cpu and replace ihs with copper and liquid metal aswell.
    at the moment im keeping it at 4.7 ghz all cores max temps around 85celcius max.can do 5ghz aswell but i dont like 100 celcius temps.
    so far i love it!
    i think you went well with 360hz screen as it looks allot better than my 25 inch alineware 1ms tn panel 244hz! is a massive difference!
    at the moment im waiting for 8tb nvme to arrive!:D
    at idle is super quiet!
    let me know if you have any questions i could answer!
