    Dell support has been REALLY good so far with me. I called them multiple times for different components and service was arranged the very next day or max 2 days after I called. One possible reason could be that I live in Singapore and Dell has a regional office in Malaysia where they manufacture some of their parts. But overall, I am really pleased with their support. Got to give credit where it's due.

    Ugh. I got 10-11 more hours to go until end of my work day. I then have to go pick up the recently released G502 Lightspeed (right after I wished for wireless equivalent right?) at a local Best Buy before I even get home to open my 51m while also fine tuning my Matebook X Pro for professional use.

    Umm, pretty sure I’ve checked those two mosfets before their death, clearly remembering the model NIKOS on them, so your explaination might be incorrect..

    On the other hand, is the avalanche cure lower better? I can’t agree with that when it comes to the mosfet death itself..

    Nikos makes plenty of them. The specs matter and they're tied to the part number, not the manufacturer name.

    You need to study how mosfets work. Lower avalanche current means mosfet doesn't go bananas all of a sudden when it's max specs are exceeded, pushing it into the avalanche state. And more important than that is the avalanche energy. Higher energy means the mosfet is more rugged and can take a lot more abuse before it breaks down.

    But mosfet burning is not always caused by avalanche.In 3C use, heat problem is often the cause.

    BTW. I got my motherboard swapped too two days ago, directly from China Kunshan where I live nearby. On it still is the 6380 module mos.
    I’m really frustrated about this since dell is using two different kinds of parts with different specs at the same time.
