    Alright time to move on. What are these going for these days?

    13r3 OLED
    7700hq
    1060
    2 x 8 2400mhz
    256gb NVMe Samsung
    1tb Crucial SATA
    9260 WiFi or the 1435 killer
    Repasted. (Haven’t really tested it actually)

    All is amazing aside from the tiny aesthetic flaw near the hinge. I posted that a few pages back.

    eBay has flawless models going for $1200 with a bigger SSD. Not paying the eBay tax, I'd say $1100 would be fair to both you and the buyer.

    ...until I looked at the cosmetic damage. First, is there any warranty left over and if not how long has it been out of warranty? That cosmetic damage puts it under $1000 IMO. You could fix it yourself and sell it as if nothing had happened I suppose. Would need to see more pictures to be honest.

    Can someone help me reduce my latency? Do I need to just update some outdated drivers?

    That latency is okay. Try updating RST driver. Completely uninstall Dell driver using revo and install inf only driver from win-raid.

    Download MSI Mode Utility V2 and switch everything that can support it to MSI/MSIX.

    Here we go again...
    Something's really wrong with my 13's sound.
    I already uninstalled and reinstalled the sound driver, it didn't help.
    The problem occurs usually after a couple minutes of use:

    Sound will become thin and really quiet, it seems the AW sound engine just stops working.

    I have no idea what to do... Halp :|

    Hi guys,

    Has anyone noticed that there appears to be a new OLED panel driver on the Dell support page? Release date says 4th Feb 2019. However when you click through, the driver still appears to the original one and there isnt any enhancements or fixes.

    Thoughts?

    I am have issues updated to the new 6519 intel dch drivers. Im still running lagacy drivers.

    Fixed. windows was still reverting to intel drivers after uninstalling. I had to switch to microsoft drivers then updated to newest dch.
