    Remember you spent $$$ for the extra power, running it with limited performance is nonsense. If it burns again just ask for a full refund, they shouldn't oppose to that.

    Hmm it's still good but around 10-15% lower compared to old BIOS benchmarks (around 27-28K):
    it would be interesting to see other results in order to have a better estimation on performance evolution with new BIOS.

    It's my philosophy too. It just gives a "russian roulette" feeling when using it

    No problem! While it does have weaker MOSFETS, remember these were the same chips they used on the 2080, so they can certainly handle the power of the 2070.

    I also had the black screen issue on my first 2070, replacing the DGFF fixed the issue for me.

    Hi bro, I just do as you wish with:

    1. Thermal balance
    2. Power balance
    3. Bios 1.6.2 (latest)
    4. vBios 1.0.0.5 (latest)
    5. Stock pad (never open)
    6. Stock paste (never open)
    7. undervolt -125 mV
    8. MSI afterburn (leave at stock)

    Firestrike with demo: 21207, graphic score: 24135.

    I can see during the stress test.

    GPU is about 74, 94%, 1820Mhz (never went over 74)
    CPU is about 74 too.

    seems like Dells plan to neuter the power is working. I just got a Razer blade 17 for travel and its maxq hit 23k graphics score.

    Dell must do that to prevent the loss, I guess. There are so many burnt machine with higher performance. I am thinking to downgrade the Bios to 1.5.0 and give it a try to see if the graphic score is higher or not.

    Go to windows sound icon, right-click and click the sound set-up from stereo (2.0) to surround (5.1)

    Or go to control panel, click the sound, playback devices, click nVidia HDMI and click configure, choose 5.1 or 7.1 (whatever your set-up is).

    I am running 5.1 surround perfectly fine since release to my Onkyo TX-NR838

    I also had the Razer Blade Pro 17 with 2080-MAX-Q for 2 days. The fans are so high-frequency (also with undervolting, no matter how fast they turn), disgusting. That's why I do not like the Razer at all, not even for web-browsing...
    Also bad: surface-temperatures, fingerprints on the surface, keyboard, cpu-temperature (although only 6x 4,0 GHz).
    But yes, it has a good mobility (and processing).

    Mobility or noise-level (characteristic) - everyone has the choise. For me noise-level (I rarely use headphones, but as I said, I also prefer the keyboard and the lower surface-temperatures of our Area 51m). And a (faster) desktop-cpu is a desktop-cpu. :)
