    And of course alienware has probably capped the total usage to 510w so adding another 330w psu to replace the 180w won't do anything. Just like the alienware 18 r3 days :)

    At least, with a lot of hassle, and ec mods there was a way around it. I believe that the 330w psu can use 400w I have two gtx 1080 in sli running off it with a 8700k. No cut off either in games.

    Two 1080 on SLI + 8700K on one 330W PSU?

    Yep, somehow no issues up till now. OK I did change the 8700k to a 8700t now. That has dramatically reduced tdp from an average of 90w to 30w and no need to delid. You wouldn't believe it, no metal paste just normal artic mx5 and max temps are 65c!

    So two gtx 1080s have a tdp of 300w. And the cpu had a tdp of 45w. System must use another 20 to 30w which means the PSU is near maxing out at 360w to 380w.

    Edit: I need to change my sig. I sourced the cards from a gt83vr which I bought from taobao. Will keep the barebone, its a neat machine!

    Sorry but I think this is impossible. My single 1080 + i5-8600K@4.3Ghz draws at max load (CPU+GPU 3dmark Firestrike Combine test) about ~310W from wall. No offense but I think you did not test your laptop well.
    My sample (last test is combined test):
    Look that GPU hold its stock core clock ~1850Mhz

    I think your config should draw from the wall at least 450W if not ~500W. Rmember, you do not just have gpu and cpu in your laptop (HDDs, SSDs, Ram, LCD and motherboard all need power)

    I guess this is probably true as I have not done a 3dmark benchmark on it yet.

    Maybe games are utilizing one card only? I don't know. I'll do a benchmark and let you know.

    :) don't need your benchmarks. I just wanted you to not waste your machine's potential :p. You have 2 gpu and maybe for example, only 10% more performance than one GPU, and for a small cash you can have, for example, + 50% or more? Who knows.

    I got the gt83vr for $800 believe it or not. So technically I got 2 gtx 1080s for the price of one gtx 1070 with sli connector.

    Also my psu shut off straight away when the bechmark loaded. The PSU doesn't seem to be turning on now lol.

    Always have suppliers if you want to get into laptop upgrading/repairing/selling, everything will be much cheaper.

    Why go from a k to a t? You can just adjust the clocks yourself.

    I put the 8700k in my desktop and sold it to maximise profit.

    I had a 8700t es edition. Overclocked blck to increase 8700t turbo clocks. No throttling and no cpu fan noise.
