    Yea even on BIOS 1.5.0 and 180w VBIOS power limit is the issue, HOWEVER on my machine I discovered that Raytracing was hardly working if at all on BIOS 1.8.1, I was shocked at the graphics improvements just going to 1.5.0 provided.

    Still gimped but at least usable now.

    I'm sure they initially shipped with AUO and LG panels, then Chi Mei panels were used when Dell started promoting and selling 'Eyesafe', which I think was around July.

    you're right :) AUO and LG was first. LG has better viewing angels but more glow. AUO better blacks and better reaction times and less glow. Panel OC both 159Hz.

    Glow Comparision: Blue Keyboard is AUO, Rainbow is LG Panel

    View angels: Blue Keyboard AUO, Rainbow LG

    How is the Chi Mei in comparison? Chi Mei typical less to none panel OC i guess?
