    Remember you can use a foam dam inside the IHS to stop anything from leaking out, too Also helps protect against oxidation, and still leaves the small gap at the edge of the IHS for expansion/contraction (there have been some people who had issues if the gap itself were totally sealed).

    Mine just died. Was playing Anthem for the first time, max settings, no overclocking on the laptop (9900/2080/32GB/2TB RAID 0 SSD + 1TB Hybrid). Got through the introductory part of the game and had my first conversation in town, was walking to the second and then flipping through the game menus looking for a game-save type of thing, when the screen went black and a puff of smoke came out of the back of the laptop.

    Disappointed but not surprised--will get ahold of Dell CS now. I might just return for a refund rather than risk this again. Anyone have any good suggestions for a comparable alternative high-end laptop?

    Sorry to hear this, hope its a straight forward process getting it sorted or a refund.

    When did you order/receive yours, if you don't mind me asking.

    Again, hope you get a speedy resolution, keep us posted.

    There are only 3 alternatives that are 17" LGA socketed + removable GPU.

    On my phone I cannot remember model numbers off hand.

    1) the smaller clevo 775 something or rather
    2) larger clevo 870 something
    3) MSI baller WT something with workstation GPU (Eurocom Tornado F7)

    I currently have the LG, and the new one is still in the box so I’m hoping when I open it in about an hour that it will show the panel model on it

    It will say it on the invoice looking thingy that is blue and white.
    Otherwise since its in the lid and its the entire assembly you probably wont be able to find out without installing it.
    I would be super interested to know what panels the depot carries.

    That's odd. I ordered mine on the 29th as well and I did not get it until today.
    Where did you order it from? Dell Directly?
