    Update: Dell sent the right motherboard this time. Back to using my Alienware again.
    Update 2: Never mind. It died in its sleep.

    After a couple more repairs and motherboard replacements, my 15 R3 is up and running. I wonder how many refurbished motherboards Dell holds for older products.

    They have probably the shelves full if there is a known major flaw with a product. Cheaper than pushing out refurbished machines as replacement.

    Does anyone know what the latest Nvidia driver is for the 1060? My GeForce experience is claiming it’s 446.14 but I feel that’s wrong cause the release date was 5/17/20

    Just an FYI if anyone still has one of these, BIOS 1.10.0 has been released.
    Microcode for Skylake is now on DC from D4 in the previous version.

    FYI, this BIOS update for 15R3/17R4 will also disable undervolting.

    I still have undervolting enabled on mine but it is the 6820HK so could be treated differently been an unlocked processor.

    Is the 4K OLED screen matte or glossy and and when gaming at 1080p is there a huge difference between the other 1080p screens ?
    I’m guessing being stuck at 60Hz offsets the superior contrast and brightness this screen has to offer

    Moving on to the other 1080p options , 300hz vs 144hz with Gsync :

    For gaming is there any noticeable difference in screen tearing with the higher refresh rate ? Obviously the Gsync screen will perform better when it comes to that aspect but will the higher refresh screen off set that ?
    Haven’t really seen anyone try out both 1080p screens side by side but the 300hz 3ms seems better on paper but since I am coming from a Gsync screen and really love that feature worry that screen tearing might be more noticeable on the 300hz screen.
    Thanks
