    Try and re flash your bios. Remember use 1.5.0 or less.

    I bought 3 9900k delided 5ghz binned and all have been fantastic, gave one to a friend one for my desktop and one for my 51m. Great company and service.
    And you can always delid one yourself there is a ton of guides on youtube. either way you choose, I think its worth the cost and effort.

    right now I am using Noctua NT-H2 and so far its decent, I have tried TG, Phobya Extreme and they are similar as well, I have a habit of buying every new thermal paste and playing. But I avg highest temp of 85 all cores at 5ghz and running cinebench 20 3 times in a row on max fans.
    But like everything you just have to play with UV various paste and see what works the best for you but deliding does help.

    Awesome! Yes please when get your tag let me know your panel.
    I think your suspicions might be correct about the new "Eyesafe" marketing.
    Knowing your panel would lead more to that conclusion. :)

    Does anyone know anything about EYESAFE?
    I wonder if it affects color reproduction. :S

    One way I found to clear this was to go into Device Manager, completely uninstall the device, reboot and allow the device to be rediscovered automatically by the system. you can then choose whether the default driver suits you or update it as needed. But this clears a lot of issues where a device has become corrupted in some way. Takes 2 minutes and would be a first step before going to check on more advanced troubleshooting.

    Not expecting "news" but has anyone with an ear to the vine heard word on the 4K panel that was supposed to be "coming"?

    For those of you who like to stick to Dell Drivers, Dell has just release a new nVIDIA Driver for the Alienware m15 R2 but surprisingly it installs on the Area-51m unlike previous drivers.

    nVIDIA GeForce Driver 430.91

    I got 410 extra 3DMarks in Firestrike over Dell's Area-51m 425.46 nVIDIA Driver.

    I mean it was posted around May 17. Mar. So expect it will come when the refresh is out middle or late fall. But who want spend $800-1000 on this upgrade for their soon 1 years old Area when it's out? Not cheap with the new panel design.
