    Until there is an actual picture, there is no 8 heat pipe version. Dont buy Orwellian math;).

    I'm starting to think there is only one heatsink? Maybe the higher configs just have side exhausts which some of the lower end configs don't?

    So far everyone has received (that have shared pictures) the same heatsink. And everyone's has had side exhausts. 1 person claims to have "8" heat pipes, but no picture has surfaced.

    Perhaps the unrealesed RTX 2060 has something different?

    Could it be all cooling configs are the same. There is one shared heatpipe on all the pics I know of. So it comes just down to how you count the pipes, i.e. count the shared heatpipe as two or one pipe.

    Not really, there are pictures from a German forum with 2080/9900k with 7pipes and Sven said his friend got 7 pipes with 9900k

    I wonder if depends from order conf, because there are 2 models that only differ in storage, and if you upgrade in the cheapest conf (3148 + 90 = 3238) will be the same setup as the highest one (3799), that’s a difference of 560, if not I don’t understand why another conf they charge over 500 when you can have in other same componentes for less price. My only thinking is last configuration is so expensive and also bring the 8pipes heatsink (1 shared) while others just gonna have the 7 pipes, but is just a guess.

    I was wondering how the 51m performs with only one AC adapter plugged in? I'm thinking about getting one of these but if I take it somewhere to do some work but not gaming, can I get by with one AC adapter?

    You can game on 1 power adapter too. 330w is enough o deliver good performance in AAA titles with some bells and whistles turned down

    Oh man, this confuses me completely. Was nearly pulling the trigger but now I wait because this price difference is strange. Can we PLEASE see a picture with these 8 pipes?

    Just did the test on Dell.ca website and for 100% the exact specs, there is a 200$ difference between the highest end configuration and the first configuration (Same specs) so maybe the $$ difference is for the heatsink?
