    Here you go buddy, my results from 5 back to back runs on the desktop at the same settings (@4.0GHz):

    Like @Mr. Fox and I mentioned, on a normal windows install (one were you don't do minimal boot/disable all services/whatever) then there will be variance in scores...


    I am curious where you got that impression from Mr. Fox? If anything he is a big proponent of desktops for benching. As much as I love laptops, they will never be as fast as a properly tuned desktop. Your 1080 may be faster than Jon Smith's stock 1080 triple fan, but it's not going to be close to the performance of someone who knows what they are doing.

    Anyway I've done what I normally do and went way off topic. I am hoping for some good scores out of the 51M since more competition = better prices = more incentive to think outside the box = the customers win.

    I'm shocked nobody has modded the thermals and done some high OC yet to the
    Pretty impressed with the system so far, the only thing that I was slightly expecting more on was the GPU scores? my 1080 SLI's (175 core 450 mem) scores 44,000, I was expecting more of a % gain it's around 18ish% if i worked it out correctly, to be honest.

    The power cord connectors for the bricks is the wrong type

    Would be nice if you could try out 3DM11 and 3DMark Vantage to see if you can reach the 180w Gpu power limits. Not many have posted results from the Rtx 2080. Thanks

    3DMark 11 Basic Edition (Demo version free for use) DirectX 11 gaming is still topic.

    3DMark Vantage (Free Key in the Download page to unlock the full version). Nice to max out power consumption.

    Post pict of your results with Hwinfo64 in the background. And even better if you also have a kill-a-watt and can tell us the max power consumption from the wall.

    Edit. Use latest Hwinfo64. Beta version v6.01, Build 3660

    For the power cords you typically need one of each connector :( the 180w takes the clover connector shown above and the 240/330w take the standard pc psu cable
