    Thanks for the reply! I think I did the same mistake with one of the terminals, but somehow I succeeded to contact the antenna to the card again. The model is 1435, so now I ordered the 1535 card in case of emergency. :)

    After undervolting -0.150 and on cooling pad - 73/70/71/68 - only 5 degree difference!!

    Can I undervolt without cache voltage? Only core voltage? XTU doesn't permit me.

    -150 was the core voltage offset. Cache voltage offset reflects the same value.

    How do you setup and calibrate the Tobii eye tracking? I click the Taskbar icon but I only see this. There is no Eye icon and settings has no option to create a profile. [​IMG]

    Thanks! I changed it to enabled and it's working. I still can't figure out how to calibrate it and setup a profile. But now the keyboard lights and stuff turn off and the screen dims, but it needs some calibration.

    Well I am going to have to return mine again. Noticed last night that the bezel is slowly pulling away over the Alienware logo on the screen. Pressing it back in doesn't help. Tried seeing if a clip was missed by squeezing the whole bottom but no joy. So disappointed in these machines. QA stinks at dell apparently. Guess I need to try another brand.

    These issues which seem to be common could easily be fixed if someone, anyone was paying attention at all.

    The Alienware specs show the M.2 slots to be UEFI and NVMe compliant, I would return the stick as defective, especially since the samsung software does not recognize it. You tried multiple slots. Note that the OS should be 64bit for the NVMe driver to work, and turn off RAID in the BIOS.

    Massive difference! Is that without under volting?

    Mine is on order. I will report my findings as soon as it arrives. I am currently using 1 x 850 M.2 1TB, and 1 x 850 2.5 SSD. The 960 EVO will make it 3TB. What capacity is your 960 EVO? also, has anyone figured out what the hell to put in M.2 slot 1? It's a half height slot. Waste in my opinion, as it limits your options for that slot.

    I put a 128GB M.2 SSD (SATA) in the 42mm slot.
