    Hello everyone, this is my first post and not a happy one. I ordered my Area 51M January 11th, and it was supposed to be delivered by February 18th. I called in today to customer service and after getting the run around for over two hours, i was told i needed to cancel my order and place a new one because of the power adapter issue. Finally after talking to the order modification department i was told my order will go into production on the 18th and ship out at the end of the week now, with the power adapter being shipped separately. Dell has the worst customer service ever!

    I don't see "Your custom-built item is complete." anymore. I hope everything is fine. Guys, who has this laptop, please answer few questions:

    How loud is it?
    Does it have soft touch on Lunar Light?
    Is there any damages on laptop?
    It comes with any bag or other accessories?

    Thanks.

    I should be able to let You know in 4 days from now :)
    But to be honest I know they will have higher temps in benchmarks but from the other hand in games 9900k is way under less load then 9700k so
    in my opinion for daily using/gaming there will be no problem.

    Considering how well it cools my 9700k I am sure the 9900k will be fine at least in stock form. I think it might struggle to overclock unless you get a better heatsink than the 9700k

    So... My 51m arrived yesterday... i got it directly from DHL (i cant wait and was calling them, so they dont need to deliver it, because im incoming :D )
    I was so tired from work, so i cant really say something about it. But...

    * The system has a really nice build-quality
    * Screws etc. for HDD + 2nd SSD are included. 2nd SSD-Heatsink is not included
    * I made a new Install with putting in new SSD etc. So i forget to made an GPT (rufus)-UEFI Stick... only had an MBR (CSM+UEFI) and it didnt worked xD
    * A reinstall is a little bit difficult i think. First of all you need to install several Apps from Microsoft-store like Nvidia Control Panel, OC Control Center. Also i dont know if i installed it in the correct order, but i will test this machine today... :)
    * I cant install any Driver for 2080 directly from Nvidia. I am only able to install the Drivers from Dell.
    * Yeah played a little bit of Battlefield V.... Ultra Settings, ALL on(except RT,DLSS), DX12 and have constant 144Hz in SILENT MODE.
    * The Laptop is really a quiet one. If i you want that it should be loud... ITS REALLY LOUD.

    Here are some Pictures... Sorry for the quality...

    Imgur or NBR-Album

    Ahh i also have a screenshot from my Install-order.. So and advice?

    Install Order

    What are your specs? Any benchmarks yet? Hows the fan noise on MAX?
