    I'm looking for a replacement 4K screen. Seeing many on ebay for $170. Do you guys know if they are any good? How do they compare to the OEM AUO 4K screen?

    Anyone experienced recently instabilities with their wifi connection on your R4s?

    Started for me after installing the previous windows feature pack (have updated once since then),
    dropping off in skype calls alot (beeping, other person can't hear me), disconnecting from online games.

    Has been some updates from the AW app as well so not entirely sure what caused it just wanted
    to check in if anyone here has had similar issues.

    EDIT: not sure if its wifi specifically, I don't loose connection to my router and the disconnects are very brief, like 5-10 seconds in skype calls.

    Hello, I have a question ... I have an i7-7820HK CPU, without OC, the maximum speed allways is 3.5 GHz, is this normal? It should go up to 3.9GHz, right? I use bios version 1.9 (and I use High Performance energy plan)

    Another question. I have 1 ssd M.2 Nvme Samsung 960 Pro and 1 ssd M.2 Mvme Toshiba THNSN51T02DU7 in my AW 17R4. In the bios, should I use RAID or AHCI for better performance?

    EDITED:

    Use AHCI, not RAID (meant AHCI in my original post, but wrote RAID):), then install Samsung driver (especially if primary with system).

    I answer you because I have pretty much the same SSD config.
