    The ones I used were the late September ones shared here by Ultra Male, do a quick search for drivers by Ultra Male in this thread only.

    Those are now outdated, do not download them. I won't be updating drivers for Alienware anymore.

    I am trying to change my boot drive from the HDD included to a SSD that I’ve puchased and installed. I’ve tried so many times to install Windows on it, including your method following every step, but I cannot get Windows 10 installed on the SSD. At first I was getting freezing, now freezing and BSOD. I’m not sure why. I unplugged the HDD too.

    Bro this makes me sad!

    Surely they will be or are better than letting Microsoft update them?

    The 330W power supplies don't have the blue light ring on the connector, that's a thing of the 240W ones.

    Will update tomorrow with a picture of the label.

    UPDATE: picture added.

    lol neither of mine have a blue light ring on the connector, just a small green light on the bricks themselves.

    I have a launch 51m with 9900K and 2080 RTX.

    Little light on the connectors is just vanity in my opinion :p

    oh no! I was thinking that only some of 330w have blue light trying to find out proper model..
    Im so sad about it.
    I suppose two 330w will heat up less than two 240w. So my perfectionism will not allow me to use two 240 despite blue led. so sad.
    It looks so great with blue light!

    But i see some 330w with blue led on photos like this one:

    I cant take this risk to order it because of its too low price
    aliexpress.com/item/33042980810.html

    Also I see that HIDevolution offers single 780w supply for Area51m but I cant find it for reliable price.. I dont think 600usd is good price for it :D
    It looks similar to EUROCOM 780W AC Adapter but it says "Ripple & Noise(*) 200mVp-p" in its specs. As I remember its only 50mv ripple allowed for computers psu so may be its something low quality for very big price.
    Does anybody know analog to use it as single power unit with area51m ?

    If you are talking about the GPU, virtually all Turing (and Pascal) GPUs--mobile and desktop--suffer from power and voltage performance limits because NVIDIA firmware sucks. There's no extra charge for that, it's just one of the services they are happy to provide.

    The only real way to fix power and voltage throttling with Pascal and Turing GPUs is to do a shunt mod to make the hardware lie to the firmware about how much power is being used.

    Ultra made it easy for us lazy people. It is just as easy to download from support.dell.com
