    Thats good:) Because the Toshiba NVMe ssd's is known to run hot and the "Drive remaining life" sink fast as a stone in water at least in previous gen Alienwares.

    There's no reason to upgrade honestly.

    All 3 panels are pretty much the same.

    I ended up updating to the latest RTX Game Ready driver from nVidia's downloads. Working fine!

    I have the 970 EVO Plus installed via the bay farthest from the front near the battery and used the one below. Never gets above 62c no matter what I'm doing. That's down from 95c+ during large download/installs.

    No worries. You get a double like!

    Thank you! I thought I saw that before, I searched but could not find it and figured its failing memory in my dotage...

    Mine came today....see below

    Mine came today and it is a CMN175F.

    When I opened my bottom panel a small lock washer was floating lose in there. Shoddy construction or delightful bonus, it depends on how you look at it.

    Anyone have issue redeeming those Nvidia promotional codes in Geforce Experience?

    I have a code for a free copy of Youngblood and Control that I bought off eBay. But GFE says I don't mean the requirements. I'm fully updated. I'm assuming the 2080 in the Area 51M is designated with a funky code that is throwing off the check... but open to other thoughts!

    where are you located? If you're not in the US you need to use a VPN and connect to a US server

    So I just finished repadding and adding liquid metal. However, the temps aren't quite what I was hoping them to be. I think they're lower by a tiny bit?
    Here's what it looks like
    Did I add too much liquid metal? Too little? Or something else?

    Can you guys give me some input on whether or not the 51M is too heavy to carry back and forth to work everyday? I'd be buying a second set of power bricks so that I don't have to lug those around.
