    Hi, your message after delivery, u implied yours got the best cooling solution, based on GPU, 2080 is top GPU & u have 9700k
    [​IMG]
    Above left, 6.5pipes, right 7pipes (Alien Marketing = 7/8)
    [​IMG]
    8pipes flipped over
    If your pics are below, I'd say your 2080 didn't get the best solution & I'd wonder why that is, maybe we all should; it suggests the best solution is reserved for 9900k 2080 (see update below)

    Heatsink Part#, white label, what is it? (if u get a chance)
    [​IMG]
    Above, 7pipes when flipped over

    Thoughts:
    1) are your side vents like pic below
    [​IMG]
    2) Can you run your SrvcTag & screen capture the part# for the 2080? Below, 2070 = PV1GD (currently unavailable from Dell, sales should begin soon); with these part#'s, later, we can inquire from Dell what these DGFF cards will cost new:
    • Dell price on new 2070 allows owner to decide what selling price is best for their used 2070 (or out-of-warranty cost is)
    • Dell price on new 2080 allows owner to decide if cost is worth upgrade (relative to funds post-sale of 2070)

    @ninja2000 is your 2070 / 9700k heatsink identical to the 2080 / 9700k heatsink from above? If so, why didn't a 2080 get the so-called 8pipe version, which is reserved for the highest-end configs: 9700k to me is high-end

    Major Update to new post below: 9900k 2080 w/ out best heatsink?
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    @captn.ko do the guys in the forum u visit have this problem, that the 9900k 2080 config did not arrive w/ the best heatsink, the one seen at CES in my top photo? Are they aware this isn't the top cooling part? Is this a factory blunder or on purpose

    No one knows yet if Intel will continue to support socket 1151, with a new 10th Gen 14nm++++++++, I think they will, I think AMD will play its part in Intel handing out three gens of support (8700k 9900k 10,900k), when two was the norm; but I wouldn't be surprised if they release a new "socket 1158 etc" on 14nm+++ (rumored 10-core), then give us a 10nm part as the "1158" upgrade path in 2020/2021 & be un-cool about it

    9700K and 9900K is reated 95w chips. Same GPU with one of them means same heatsink. They aka Dell have to follow TDP specs!

    Has anyone received a 51m with an i7-8700 + 2080 and if so what temps are you getting while gaming? I'm getting very close to making a decision to buy one and the only thing holding me back is concern over the thermals..

    I'm wondering the same thing, it's considerably cheaper from XoticPC.

    I am waiting on an answer on which screen it comes with and then I am pulling the trigger. Can get it with everything in my original post plus 2 year warranty and only 70 bucks to ship to me in Afghanistan.

    Will do bank transfer which qualifies for their 3% off for paying with cash. Including shipping will only cost me $4190.48

    Does anyone with the small ssd 256gb did a clean install to a new one (got the 1tb Evo 970 plus waiting) and went all good? I asume the Evo would be faster than the ssd that comes with the cheaper hard drive offered.

    Just curious about it in case when I receive it, can’t wait for it.

    What size thermal pads are present, 1.5 or 2mm thermal pads?? They seem nice and compressible and making good contact. Wish we could buy highly compressible Thermal pads from IT shops? I bought Gelid hopefully it's better more compressible than Arctic ones.

    Here is a picture from the german aw-community... He has this config: (Core i9 9900K und RTX2080). Look at his Heatsink:

    https://imgur.com/a/nNgU8Zy

    So maybe one with a larger Heatsink will take a photo for us :)

    EDIT: I did not look for the pads. Sorry. But i think its just 0,5 mm and 1 mm.

    EDIT2: And Sorry, i wont disassemble this machine in the near future again. Its working perfect now, (never touch a run....) and there are many other users than get you this information about Tags, and Codes inside this machine.
