    No dude, I have 8TB just because I like to max out the storage. I hate the feeling that I am limited if you know what I mean. I have a 4TB external WD USB HDD which I use for backup.

    Speaking of backup, this is how Ultra Male backs up all his stuff (only the changes) within seconds:

    The best and fastest way to backup your data!

    Hi all.

    Sorry to ask this but I just need to clarify something. I have not turned on the 51m for about a month. Busy times!! Anyway I just booted it up and it did a bunch of updates including firmware. Now when I play games, I get slowdown which lasts for a few seconds, sometimes longer. Please tell me this is not GPU throttling as is being suggested on this forum. I never had this issue before and quite frankly if this is the case now I want my money back! What has changed exactly? My system ran beautifully prior to these updates. Not happy right now! Cheers.

    Sounds like the GPU throttling bug. I would go back to bios 1.5.0 or preferably 1.3.2. See @S.K's guide here.

    I only see 1.3.0 on Dell's site when I hit older versions not 1.3.2?

    You're right, dunno why they removed that. I'm sure someone has a copy of 1.3.2, if not 1.3.0 will work just fine.

    Changing bio's is a waste of time. When Dell get around to fixing ram speeds most people will change what ever they are using for the extra speed.

    So I noticed updating to 1903 re-enabled fast start up.

    Upon booting up (after full shutdown), event viewer said my system has returned from a low power state (sleep time/wake time.)

    It appears instead of shutting down, it went into sleep mode.

    Anyone know if this is due to fast start up being enabled? I disabled it again but haven't tested.
