    I expect that Dell's engineers have spent a lot time testing before and after the release and finally figured out that they could not validate higher ram speed/XMP support for Area-51m due etc cheaply produced MB (This would have been irresponsible - they simply can't add in better ram support for some of the MB if they are made in more than 1 revisions). Probably too bad signal quality/noise on the traces and paths on many of theeir MB. They will probably fix it for the refreshed R2 model. This of course if they are willing to spend the needed money on the refreshed boards.

    Looks like a downgrade of your BIOS may help. See the post by S.K here to get to BIOS v1.5

    Is anyone running Qubes OS on their 51m? If so, are there any suggestions on how to run it or is it a simple plug and play.
