    Oooook !!!

    Now that's interesting !

    Freaking 10512 in 3dMark/Time Spy with 74°c on GPU (no undervolt) & 56°c on CPU (undervolted @-110mv)... ok that was with full fan speed but anyway... sounds very good compared to the 1st repaste/repad.

    I think that was a good idea to pickup the core i9 9900k from my previous unit, It's quite the results of a Delidded CPU (did HIDevolution offered me a Delid ? ^^) :

    [​IMG]

    Or maybe it's because of the switch from Gelid to Kryonaut on CPU (only)...

    It's amazing... no more THRM or PWR throttling...

    39°c GPU on idle, 44°c CPU on idle...

    Now I can rest, and... prey to spend the next month without dying laptop or GPU connector screwed ;)

    Nice Result!! All I can do Is hope I can have same result. You have me excited. So Dell solution team has taken care of me. I got a offer yesterday for an unbeatable price for a 9900k and 2080, Dark Side 144hz gsync, 16gb, 512nvme + 1tb sshd with 4 year premium warranty. I could not turn this down. So I now will be back online to receiving mine.

    HF GL !! ;)

    What's your story with yours, it also died and you're waiting after a swap or this a new order ?

    Anyway... I've waited quite 2 months after having used for only 2 weeks, a failed repair and today this problem (quickly solved anyway...) but I can only tell you that the wait is worth !!

    What a beast my friend !

    Hey,what's the socket/clip on the third image there? Is this the pin which connects DGFF to the motherboard? Mine looked different when I opened it up last week... Do you have more images of this clip?

    Does anyone know how to change the "Boot List Option" on the A51M? It seems to stay grayed out even if you disable Secure boot. :(

    I never even received it. They kept delaying my order for almost 3 months. Then they out of no where canceled it no warning or email. Then I tried reordering and they asked if I had received my first order and I was like what? Then that was followed up with very rude support when I gave no reason for it. Then I got a solution at the time, then that person lied about it saying the solution never happen. Unfortunately that was a phone promise so I could not prove it. Then I had a few emails back and forth and wally I had someone offer the same promise as before but now I had proof. Again I had a very impolite person on the phone trying to take care of it. I then got a call from the one that originally took the order with me and was very rude while asking "WHY DID YOU CANCEL" basically yelling and interrogating me. At his point I sent a message to the escalation team. I got a call from the Outstanding issues manager and asked for the email's and such. So at that time they took down everything and apologized for the rude encounters. Then less then 24hrs later I got a call from the outstanding issues manager with the offer. The rest is history haha. Pretty excited now.

    Did you ever figure this out? It would be horrible if there is no way to boot into a legacy boot. :(
