    It appears that SATA III is supported, as said in the official manual as well as one review from Notebookcheck.

    i installed 2- 2tb nvme drives.



    put raid in bios (only one setting)



    then installed windows



    then used the intel raid software to create raid 0. then reinstalled windows 10 on the raid. my speeds are exact the same 3200 (was the same with one drive)



    also having a issue when i restart it just goes blank. doesnr actually start. i have to hold down power and hard off the turn on.





    this is for restart every time.



    what am i doing wrong? what setting do i need to change.



    on raid it created a 4tb just fine but speeds did not increase at all

    Pretty much convinced to grab one of the HP Omen 17's w/ 2080.

    In fact, the only obvious downside to me is that sharp front edge.

    The i9 + RTX 2080 combo with 1TB HDD, 512GB SSD, 32GB RAM and 144Hz screen is on sale for $2,380 right now. According to HP, you also get the Omen Mindframe headset for free. If that's not a bargain, I don't know what is. The code BTSSTACK10 is needed to get this price.

    I still have my heart set on the Alienware m17 R2 but I'm holding off until I see reviews and until they release the Lunar Light version.

    Hello, I purchased an Omen 15-dc0096nr. I read about issues with the Omens being underpowered with OEM power adapters. The previous owner didn't have the power adapter so I ordered the Omen 330w Power Adapter. The power adapters are rated at the same 19.5v voltage but the 330w obviously has more amps available.. The Omen power adapter also has the 7.4mm plug while the laptop has the 4.5mm plug. Has anyone tried ordering the 7.4mm to 4.5mm adapter plug and used the higher wattage power adapter? Am I going to run into problems with the higher wattage power adapter on this laptop? Thank for any help and input!
