    When re ordering are they giving you the same pricing as before? Asking since I am seeing higher rates for warranty now (as compared to January)

    I'm looking to buy a new killer gaming rig and the new AW Area 51M looks like it's ticking all the boxes for me.

    I have some questions thou, hopefully they are easy to answer...

    1. How is the fan noise on the 51M and have AW solved their heat issues?
    2. For 1080p gaming, are there any reason to chose 9900 over 9700 and 2080 over 2070?
    3. As above, does 9900/2080 generate a lot more heat than 9700/2070?

    My wife thinks I'm nuts how often I keep refreshing the Dell status page.... It hasn't changed since January 10th.... Other than being cancelled and re-ordered again 6 days ago... I think I bring new meaning to anxiety....

    I'll let ya know. Sales and such aren't open until tomorrow. I'm talking with Hidevolution so I'm pretty sure I'm telling dell to go pound salt.

    Refreshing won't change a thing! But your Wife's eye color will change from No AlienFX to glowing Blood Red AlienFX Eyes and you'll need upgradable Cybernetics based eyes to see the world again.

    They have holidays now in CHina because of Chinese new year. The factories are closed.

    They told me story about power supply twice at now they got nothing else to say. I don't understand how HIDevolution has everything and Dell missing parts, but I can't order from HIDevolution, cause they want about 700$ more for the same specs. Maybe better to build desktop and travel with it like a crazy man?

    1. Probably will require at least a repaste and voltage tuning.

    2. No reason to get i9 for gaming, even "killer gaming" won't benefit ;)

    RTX 2080 will probably get you to the 144 FPS required to benefit most from the 144HZ display in many games.

    3. No one has one yet, but probably. On the other hand getting an RTX 2070 will probably net you a weaker heatsink.

    Who says HIDevolutions has them? I would imagine they would get their stock at the same time the general public get theirs...
