    ... bad luck, does not work.
    But maybe not far though :

    - I made a clean install with the Microsoft tool, and a flash drive (maybe not uefi)
    Everything went well, ssd recognized, formated one partition, install going well. Then it said remove flash disk & reboot

    - From that point, impossible to finish install :
    a/ SSD is absolutely not visible from the setup (whatever option sata3 y/n, ahci on/off)
    b/ At boot message "can not find boot devices"

    ... shame. Putted back the other SSD while waiting.

    Need help :)

    Does anyone know whether the built in RAM in the XPS 13 is single channel like the one in the Thinkpad X250 (although the one in the Thinkpad is exchangeable) is?
    I heard that the single/dual channel thing affects the speed of the internal GPU ...
    Sorry if this is a noob question.

    So I just spoke to Dell and they are going to (hopefully, not fully approved yet) do an advanced exchange on my unit that had the popping bezel and coil whine.

    Hopefully the replacement unit is flawless, I'll be ultra <adjective> if the replacement has the same or new issues.

    We'll see in a week or two.

    Have you considered just letting the fans run for a while and let it do its thing? It is very possible that it is doing some updating/syncing/whatever while plugged in. And it wants fans on.

    Mine was kinda loud the first couple days. Now, the fans very rarely turn on. And I still use Chrome for most surfing.

    fan grinding sound issue=solved!
    dell has sent out a technician (getronics) for fan replacement. they also changed the display due to unevenly lit screen. very nice guy, no scratches. he only broke one clip on the back of the laptop but no big deal.

    i'm happy now :)
