    Everyone should downgrade while they have the chance. Only a matter of time before they lock us out from downgrading again.

    A burnt GPU is better than a throttling GPU I say....

    Reduce thermals will reduce stress on components. Aka they will have a longer lifespan. See.. Less RMA. RMA and tech support ain't cheap. Re-call of the products even more costly. They went for the cheapest and easiest solution for themself to fix a problem. See also... http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...-owners-lounge.826831/page-1101#post-10911459

    And Dell use same engineers for AW and XPS.

    Right, but speculating that it's the fix for systems burning up MOSFETs is just that, speculation. It could be people complaining about high temps which likely far outnumbers the amount of complaints about burned up systems...

    Could be. But why would they give a damn in peoples complaining about too high temp on Cpu? This doesn't smell(s) well.

    You're positive you are on 1.5.4? You would be the first person on it without having a reduced GPU set point. What does your NVIDIA bios tab show?

    Not my A51m. Asked for screenshot in our german forum. Will ask again if it is realy 1.5.4.

    Maybe its a bug with AWCC ? Because silent fan profile has 75 degree limit... Maybe its just a bug?

    If you have OC controls on in AWCC it is set to default temps at 87. turn off oc and reboot then run gpuz on 1.5.4
