    I got exactly the same problem...
    I already reported to @bagman317 @AzorFrank @aw_umar that this bios is bugged there is now more than 2 weeks, and still nothing.
    I didn't spoke about this problem, but about temps raise, bad fan table rpm, and still no new vbios for 1070 with micron vrams...

    So if on your side you can make things change ;)

    Thank you

    Hello guys , I'm not that expert , my Alienware 15 r3 will arrive in a week or so, 6700HQ , ips panel 60 , 1060 gtx for 1600 euros . After I read the forum here about the thermal issues and screen , I'm super scare that I select the wrong product , I saw mostly all YouTube reviews and it's a recommended device , im not planing to repaste just I will under volt the CPU ,
    Is there any potential tests I should execute to address any expected or unexpected issues ? So I can return the device and use the 14 days return policy .

    Can anyone please help me understand the current 15 R3 website? I just got ready to configure a system and these were my two screen options:

    • I was really happy to see a 120Hz option that was IPS so I made the purchase.....After checking my order status the description changed to a 400nit TN panel. Does anyone here have an IPS Gsync 120Hz Panel on this system?

    Had similar experience and also rolled back. Also got the feeling the fan curve was set to low on the 1.0.12 BIOS.

    Well if iUnlock say it is, it probably is :D

    I downgraded to 1.09 which seemed to improve the situation but that was on the 17" version so might be some difference.

    Only problem with 1.0.9 is that it will randomly freeze and cause a bricked Mobo. Even iunlock has said it's a ticking time bomb.
