    Btw my 51m is running the 1.5.4 and it does not suffer off brutal throttle.

    Ooook !

    Applyed some undervolt, 1960 Mhz full load and 0.900mv :

    stabilized at 74/75°c @ full speed fans
    My swaped fresh unit was equipped with 2x8 GB of DDR4 2666 indeed.

    This is my setup right now :

    Repad & Repaste Kryonaut on CPU and Gelid GC Extreme on GPU.

    Undervolt @ -110mv on CPU (i9 9900k default multipliers) with Throttlestop
    Undervolt @ 0.924mv on RTX2080 with MSI AfterBurner.

    75°c at max on GPU on overwatch.
    70ish at max on CPU on overwatch.

    Bios 1.5.0. Capsule Update Bios Disabled.

    And that's it...

    A lot of work but nice results...

    Will see in the future if Dell release a new bios... and if my laptop is still alive..

    Why different pastes on both CPU and GPU? :confused:

    Have you tried letting it go beyond 75 degrees celcius?

    Overwatch doesn't really stress the GPU enough, you should try playing Division 2 and Metro Exodus and I can almost guarantee you that your game will crash if you run it at 1960Mhz at .9mv (from my personal experience of course and your mileage may vary) If you do choose to try it, please post your results here.

    Anyone knows what Eyesafe display technology is? My replacement laptop claims Eyesafe display while earlier one just had Tobii eyetracking and gsync. Dell's website says it will start shipping Summer 2019.

    Just marketing mumbo-jumbo. It's the same.

    It wasn't safe on 0.9 switch back to 1950@0.924... stress tested with 3dmark.

    Is 3dmark enough ? Caus' I don't have division 2.

    So I know when this thread was new some of us were talking about swapping out the base cpu for the 8700K/8086K. Has anyone tried that? I don't see there being a problem with that, but I could see Dell doing something odd like restricting it in software not letting you overclock or something like that.

    Spent the morning checking GPU temps. Bios 1.5.0 playing Doom 2016, I got the 2080 RTX to work at 76% and get up to 80 degrees on stock voltage and clock settings no throttling or issues with clock.

    I have Panasonic thermal pads (1, 1.5, 3mm) in route and I have ordered Grizzly Kryonaut, and Conductonaut haven't decided which to use on CPU and Phobya nanogrease extreme for GPU.

    I might have ordered too many thermal pads and I'm not sure yet as they have not yet arrived. I'll post and let you guys know if I ordered too many. I'm on the fence about wich themal paste to use on the CPU so your help on that is greatly appreciated! Thank you guys.
