    I'm a 5% also. Two full discharge/charge and no change.

    Hearing interference through headphones when changing Web page is really starting to annoy me!

    My heatsinks also arrived, did you get a shout back from them about w/mk rating s4lem?

    And slightly o/t, what was a stable undervolt with original bios was lost when I changed to 1.03. Had to nudge it back up slightly.

    Hello everyone i am new user who has been struggling with a setup on my 13r3. I have been trying to get full control over the fans within hwinfo but i am only getting 3 options for fan speed. On the 15r3 i can easily use the slider in hwinfo to adjust rpm to 1000 rpm or any specific speed i would like for the two fans but on the new 13 laptop i am unable to get full access. Any suggestions would be awesome i have tried many different setings and nothing seems to work

    Hey!

    Welcome to the forum! Great bunch around here! :)

    I think we are awaiting an update to HWiNFO to control the AW 13 fans, something i (and i'm sure other would as well) would like!

    This is not possible, it's because of an EC Limitation.

    HWinfo can only control what's allowed to be changed on the EC, so what needs to be updated is the system bios to unlock 3rd party access to wider range of fan control (or Dell makes fan control application / module into a new version of Alienware Command Center). Both won't happen so don't hold your breath.

    How come in the new 15r3 it is possible? They are almost the same machines.
