    I think you may have quoted the wrong post? Not what @ssj92 is talking about at all.

    Nonetheless this is indeed true. I have tried using different PSUs on my first AW 13 R2 before and it wouldn't charge. However a nearly 10 year old Dell adapter did, so they have been doing this for a long time it seems.

    Yup , I have a apple thunderbolt display, had to run through iGPU to game using my AW 13 R3 + Titan X GPU

    I was referring to internal display having both nVidia GPU & iGPU shown in device manager.
    I meant opening the laptop out of the box. It's still sealed sitting here waiting for me

    I'll get to the bottom of this 330w single vs 330w+180w PSU thing and see how much it downclocks. I have i9-9900K + RTX 2080 model.

    Has anyone posted results between the 9700k and 9900k with hyperthreading disabled. It was brought up towards the beginning of the thread and could provide some knowledge with those making a decision between these two cpus that split workloads or multipurpose their systems. Thanks in advance.

    I'll add this to my list of testing. As far as I know BIOS 1.20 supports HT on/off I believe.

    Will you be adding links to your tests? I’m assuming they’ll be on YouTube? If so, what’s your YouTube channel name so I can subscribe. I need all the info/guidance I can get with this laptop lol...

    I'm going to make lots of videos on this. I'll start with an unboxing video and from that video I link you can subscribe. Also gives me an opportunity to see what the quality is like using a 9 year old DSLR lol.

    I'll edit first post with some videos. I'll see maybe I'll make my own little thread with the results.

    This is what I'm working with lol

    What kind of professional-looking backpacks are people using for this?

    If I order the Alienware Area 51-M, this is the backpack I will be getting which is guaranteed to fit since it was made for it:

    So guys, anyone with the 9900K care to share the temps and if the machine is able to run the CPU at its advertised clocks or is it thermal throttling like heck?
