    I got my 15r3 yesterday.

    6820hk
    GTX 1070
    UHD
    16gb 2667hz

    Cpu temps were hitting 90 degrees on the simple CPUZ stress test lol. I repasted the cpu and the temps are much lower but adverage temp on the cores are all over the place. I tried to overclock the cpu in the bios to 4ghz but when I load up into windows it only shows 3.6 ghz.. tried resetting the bios to defaults no joy. It was easy to just overclock to 4ghz on the 15r2.

    Any help on overclocking via the bios?

    I've tried xtu but the clocks don't stick :(

    Just as a follow up, at -0.2V even though it was stable in CPU stress tests, when I ran OCCT + Furmark the temps went back up above 90C and the system crashed. Going to contact tech support on Monday to get a replacement.

    Same problems here. some flickering and shut downs. battlefield 1 overheating the cpu

    Having to open up and repaste a brand new machine just to use it is unacceptable. I won't be doing it until alienware show some work on their end as well

    Not that kind of errors, i meant MTBF by error, which reduce to half.
    Yes, you should play nfs on raid. ;)

    yes, it was fixed by reverting to the previous build of the graphics driver. (no battlefield)
