    HeHe. Yeah, Dell continue keep up with their 100C traditions. I wonder when they have the time add in the m15 Ryzen model into their Tech support webpage to try calm down concerned owners/buyers:) https://www.dell.com/support/kbdoc/...nware-notebooks-purchased-after-2016#High_CPU

    You don't need to introduce yourself. You are well known since your repaste guide with 17R2/R3. So i (we all ) know that you can repaste and tweak a laptop to it's limit but....this time....HUM....i don't feel it. Also they reduce TGP of the 3070 (like @HaloGod2012 just mentionned) but still CPU (shared heatsink) core speed seems all over the place because ot temps.

    Anyway good luck at making it shine but to me this design is destin to fail. Even with your skills.:)

    Good find @Papusan. I was once told by DONOVAN (supervisor at Alienware Costa RIca) that themperatures were normal. He then showed me the exact same page you just linked to us.
    But please pay attention to this sentence: «The TCC is activated and adjusts the CPU frequency down by a couple of hundred MHz to reduce the temperature rise. This allows the system’s thermal control mechanism to catch up»
    Now what exactly is a: «couple of undred MHz down»
    On the area 51M R1 it can go down form 2100MHz to 500MHz!!! I have experienced it. In FPS (Frame per second) while gaming, it translate in going from 70FPS to 15FPS!!!
    15 FPS becomes unplayable for a gaming machine.

    So if a custumer ever calls dell Alienware and complain about terrible drops in FPS: Dell has this webpage they can show them to explain this behavior is normal and the system is working as intended (intended = themal throttling).

    Fire and smoke right after expired warranty is probably worse than throttling and less FPS due the same culprit (100C is just fine). Can become an awful experience if you let the machine run at nights while you sleep:)

    Well you’re wrong there my friend. I got into a spat with someone on Reddit that was telling people 100C is normal and totally fine. So there are plenty of bafoons out there that don’t think it’s an issue.

    Maybe they just like their CPU's the way they like their Women? HOT!

    Hope they’re ok with the inevitable burnout then. This is why I prefer cute women. ;)

    Maybe some of the reddit boys/girls just follow what they have learned from Dell tech support?:) The first I started think about when I saw this article was Dell's statement that 100C is just fine.
